John Conolly came to Dreamers Folk last evening and had a full house of eager singers in the palm of his hand! We expected the beautifully crafted songs, such as “Fiddlers Green” & “Punch & Judy Man”, but he blew us away with his honest, engaging and entertaining stage presence.

Father Christmas, a Doctor, Beelzebub, a Turk, and his Father the King of Egypt and of course our hero, St Piran of Cornwall.
