"The Beach"




Julie July Band




Bedworth Folk Festival



A powerful yet sensitive singer/songwriter with a relaxed, warm performing style.

First performing in folk clubs while a student in Swansea in the late ‘60's, Colin was to become a very popular performer in Midlands folk circles in the first half of the 1970's.  There are many fond memories of the Cherry Trees Folk Club in Alcester and even a small spot at the Troubadour in London courtesy of a chance meeting with the late Martin Winsor.

Colin re-emerged as a singer/songwriter in the 1990's with a reputation for writing songs that sometimes make you think, sometimes make you laugh and sometimes just make you feel good. 

Colin has performed at clubs, village halls and festivals all over the UK and has also been on many local radio shows as well as a performance on BBC Radio 2.  A serious illness caused a reduction in live work for a while but Colin kept writing and is now performing live better than ever.

Now in the 21st Century he is still delivering his special brand of intimate songs and stories, with a sprinkle of wry humour.

There are now many covers of Colin's songs such as "Looking For England", "Australian Wine" and "Let Her Lie" among others and it is not unusual to hear one of his songs in a folk club, festival or on radio.  Indeed recently at a folk club a singer introduced Colin's "Nailer's Row" as a Traditional song!!

A new album is being recorded at the moment for release later in 2023.  A song from the album called "Halfway Round The World", about huge fires in Australia is already attracting attention in the wake of the climate change situation.
