John Conolly is an internationally-respected songwriter who has based his style firmly in the folk tradition.   His finely-crafted songs are performed with warmth, good humour and lilting accompaniments on guitar and melodeon.   Many of John’s songs have a tang of the sea, inherited from his upbringing on the east coast of England, where his grandfather and great grandfather were boat builders on the banks of the river Humber.   His best-known composition, the classic Fiddlers’ Green, has the ring of a true folk ballad, and has often been taken for a traditional song.   This is John’s seventh excursion to Morley in the last seven years having appeared at Morley Literature festival four years ago, in Churwell, and also five times at Morley Folk Club.

John will be supported on this occasion by MorleyFolk and Chris Scarlett.
