“One of the best of the New Wave of Folk Blokes”, says fRoots Mag, adding, “As a guitar player and arranger of traditional songs, Jon Wilks already deserves speaking of in the same breath as your Simpsons and your Morays.”

At his first Birmingham gig in 20 years, he’ll be playing a selection from Midlife, his new album of traditional Brummie folk songs.  Jon has been drawing on the research of the Birmingham and Midland Folk Centre, predecessor of the Trad Arts Team, and we are delighted that these songs are taking on a new life.

Support comes from similarly displaced Brummie and Jon’s former bandmate, Richard Davies
