Goodbye Julie Felix, Britain’s “First Lady of Folk”
It is with great sadness we learnt that folk legend Julie Felix died in her sleep on Sunday 22nd March, after a short illness. We were very fortunate to welcome Julie as our guest to Cambridge Folk Club three times in recent years, in 2007, 2012 and 2014. If anyone deserved the description “Forever Young”, she did… Her enthusiasm, love of folk song and commitment to her audience remained as strong as ever – and she could still do the famous high leg kick… ___________________________________________________________________________
Cambridge Folk Club closing due to threat from Coronavirus.
It is with great regret that we have decided to close the Cambridge Folk Club until further notice, in the light of the increasing threat from coronavirus COVID-19. We have a responsibility to protect the artists who perform for us, our audience members and our volunteers, and, taking into account the Club's general demographic, we are sure you will understand that our decision is in everyone's best interests.
At present, we are anticipating that we may have to remain closed until September. We are hoping to re-book the artists who were scheduled to appear at the Club at a later date.
We will, of course, keep you up to date about when the Club will reopen via our website and our mail out.
In these difficult times, we at Cambridge Folk Club are asking you to support the musicians who won’t be able to play for us while the Club is closed, by buying their CDs and other merchandise. This would go some way towards replacing their lost income, and would also show that we’re thinking of them.
Don't forget about us, we will be back! In the meantime, stay safe and healthy, and enjoy listening to the music we all love so much.
