John Conolly

John  Conolly is a singer/songwriter who has based his style firmly in the English Folk tradition, and songs like his classic” Fiddlers’ Green” and “The Trawling Trade” have earned him a welcome at major Folk and Maritime Festivals all over the world. Many of his songs have a tang of the sea, reflecting the lives and labours of the fisherfolk in his home town of Grimsby. That’s not the full story, however, and a typical John Conolly performance will cover a wide range of subject-matter – and will always include a generous dollop of the “saucy-seaside-postcard” humour he delights in!
