John Conolly

April 22 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


John has been a presence on the British folk scene since the folk revival in the early ’60s, and indeed was among the founders of the Grimsby Folk Song club, which opened its doors in 1964.
Many of his early songs, written in conjunction with his old friend and songwriting partner Bill Meek, tell heartwarming stories of the lives and labours of the East Coast fishing community, and these songs in particular have earned John a welcome at Folk and Maritime Festivals worldwide.

More recently, John has broadened the subject-matter of his writing – he has written tender love songs, hard-hitting political protests,and outrageously funny ditties which he describes as his “Saucy Postcard Collection”.

This is a must see concert from this fine singer/songwriter, come along and give him a great Cornish welcome!
