About John Conolly plays Roots@94

John Conolly is an acclaimed singer-songwriter who plays guitar and melodeon and who has been a presence on the British folk scene since the folk revival of the early ’60s and 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”.

A typical John Conolly performance will include a finely-judged mixture of these genres for, above all, John likes to entertain, and to send an audience home happy!
