A welcome visitor from the USA, Judy Cook has been touring Britain and the US as a professional musician for more than fifteen years.
Judy lifts the spirit and entertains with splendid traditional ballads and songs from a huge and varied Anglo-American repertoire. Her clear and engaging presentation combine with her joy of singing to delight all listeners. She is also recognised as a folk music researcher, author and historian, but above all she is a performer, communicator and entertainer.
Edinburgh Folk Club is an organisation which exists to foster an interest in the wide international world of folk and related musics. It is not compulsory to be a member to be able to attend the club’s weekly shows – just turn up and pay the admission charge at the door. The club held its first meeting on Wednesday 3 October 1973 and has been in continuous existence since then.
