Date: Friday 15th March 2019
Jon Wilks writes about folk music and performs it when people let him.
A wonderful singer and fingerstyle guitarist, his live shows are an amusing mix of folk song performance and conversation, throwing in tidbits of weird and wonderful information about the original singers and collectors that he has come across during his writing research.
To date, Jon has released two solo albums, as well as three albums and one EP with The Grizzly Folk, and an album and EP with Japan-based indie band, Cut Flowers, in a former life.
"He may not have the long immersion of your Simpsons, your Morays or Fosters but as a guitar player and arranger of traditional songs he already deserves speaking of in the same breath." fRoots magazine.

Bodmin Folk Club
Bodmin Folk Club
In 1967, a small group of enthusiasts who met weekly to sing in the Masons Arms decided to start a club to attract traditional performers to Cornwall. The first recorded club night of the Bodmin Traditional Folk Club was on 31st May 1968 in an upper room at The Barley Sheaf.
Since then, the club has met almost every single Friday night, welcoming a range of singers, musicians and occasional dancers from Britain and beyond at both guest nights and open houses.
Our new home is at The Old Library, 10 Lower Bore Street, PL31 2JX. It has a Licensed bar, also sells Tea & Coffee, Soft drinks, and wonderful sausage rolls and cake!
Find us there every Friday except Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and the August Bank Holiday weekend, when we’re at Cornwall Folk Festival.
