Julie July Trio

The Julie July Acoustic Trio - pay a heartfelt tribute to the great singer-songwriter ‘Sandy Denny’. The Band has built a substantial reputation on re-interpretations of Sandy Denny's songs, from dreamy acoustic melodies to driving progressive folk-rock, she was one of the UK’s singer songwriters of the British Folk-Rock movement. In her brief Career Sandy left a legacy of beautiful, haunting original and traditional compositions.  Richard Thompson called her ‘The Greatest artist of her generation”.  Melody maker readers twice voted her ‘Best British Female Singer” in 1970 and 1971.  Her most famous song “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?”, was voted favourite folk-track of all time by listeners of BBC Radio 2. Now, 40 years on “The July Julie Trio perform a selection of her songs from:  The Strawbs, Fotheringay, Fairport Convention and Sandy’s Solo Career.

The Julie July Trio have received rave reviews wherever they have played -
