First Lady of Folk appears at Hawth

Folk legend Julie Felix performs at The Hawth, Crawley, on Tuesday, February 25, at 7.45pm.

In 1964 Julie arrived in England after leaving California and hitching through Europe with a duffel bag and the Mexican guitar given to her by her father.

By 1965, she was a headlining performer, described by The Times as ‘Britain’s First Lady of Folk’. By the end of that year, she had filled the Royal Albert Hall for one of her concerts.

In 1969 Julie was one of the main artists to appear at the legendary Isle of Wight Festival. In the late 1970s Julie moved to Norway where the title track of her 1976 album Hot Chocolata went to number one in the singles chart. She is still singing for peace and equality, and joined Brian Eno and Mark Rylance in a London concert for Stop The War.
