Description

Singer Songwriter – Humanitarian – Environmentalist 
Julie Felix
“A Legend”
In 1964 Julie arrived in England after leaving California and hitchhiking through Europe with the guitar her father had given her
It didn’t take long before Julie took the seat as the resident singer on the amazingly popular TV Show ‘The Frost Report’, and quickly became a household name in the UK

Only four years after stepping on our shore, Julie is given her own TV series of 17 shows, the first colour series produced by the BBC, and is sold to virtually every country in the world. Guests include Spike Milligan, Richard Harris, Leonard Cohen, Dusty Springfield, Donovan, and Jimmy Page
Throughout the 60s and 70s Julie’s career flourished, and her music reflected her heartfelt beliefs and her love affair with nature
In the 1980s she moved back to California and took a break from the music world. An experience on a peace march in Central America in the late 80’s inspired Julie to pick up her guitar and start singing again
Two decades later of none stop activity, in October 2013 Julie was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla
What began for little Julie as simple home entertainment, as her father and his friends played Mariachi music into the small hours of the morning, has actually been this remarkable woman’s vocation for half a century……and fortunately for us…..it still is!

Reg Meuross

Our Festival patron, Somerset singer-songwriter Reg Meuross has been on tour this year with latest album 12 Silk Handkerchiefs and characters from 12 other superb albums. Described by Mark Radcliffe as a “brilliant singer-songwriter and true troubadour with a social conscience,” it’s not all protest. As well as story songs which bring characters from history to life and comment on life around him Reg also writes and sings some of the most heart-aching love songs ever written, performed with depth and spellbinding delivery. Reg has that rare gift of being able to touch people through his songs and performance, on a really human level, his words and music painting pictures that remain with the listener long after the song has been sung, accompanying himself masterfully on guitar and captivating audiences with his beautiful tenor voice.

“When you have 2000 people singing along, you’re doing something right.” Great British Folk Festival
“One of the most talented storytellers of our generation” Pennyblack Music
“A mighty songwriter and an equally fine singer” Martin Carthy
