A celebration and tribute to Sandy Denny’s defining role in British folk-rock music from the Julie July Band.

The band has  built a substantial reputation with reinterpretations and arrangements of the work of singer-songwriter Sandy Denny, who was dubbed “the greatest artist of her generation” by Richard Thompson. In Sandy’s brief career she left a legacy of beautiful, haunting original and traditional compositions.

Inspired by Sandy’s work and the wider folk, rock and blues movements of the 60s and 70s, the band will also perform songs from their own self-penned albums ‘Lady of the First Light’ and ‘Wonderland’.

“Julie July and her band have delivered a first-rate collection of contemporary Folk-Rock music. Quality songs, superb vocals and forthright lyrics delivered with skill, technique and conviction. Perfectly conceived, recorded and superbly realised – this is proof that she is one of the brightest talents in the UK right now” John O’Regan Journalist & Broadcaster – fRoots, Living Tradition, LCCR.

“Went to the gig @ Birmingham last night and really enjoyed the set. Great musicianship and arrangements from the band and Julie’s superb vocal interpretations of Sandy Denny’s songbook really do justice to what is outstanding material. A couple of original songs of their own were also performed and fitted into the set very well indeed. Thanks for an evening of great live music and placing an outstanding musical legacy right where it should be, alive and well and being performed for people to enjoy. A rare opportunity not to be missed!” (Garry)
