Named by no less than the late Tony Benn as “the greatest socialist folk singer of his generation”, the veteran singer-songwriter is back at the club tomorrow (Friday), almost 40 years to the day after he first performed there.

Named by no less than the late Tony Benn as “the greatest socialist folk singer of his generation”, the veteran singer-songwriter is back at the club tomorrow (Friday), almost 40 years to the day after he first performed there.

Roy, from Sheffield, collaborated extensively with Tony Benn and the pair were named Best Live Act at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards in 2003 for their programme Writing on the Wall.

The club was founded in 1974 and was held at the Rockingham Arms in Wentworth for many years. Roy Bailey performed on the very first night.

The club, which had been based more recently at The Rock at Maltby, has now moved to 48 Beckett Road, Doncaster.

Graham Fellows, also originally from Sheffield, and better known for his comedy music character John Shuttleworth, is Roy’s support artist for the evening.

Graham will be returning to his personal roots when he performs some of his more recently-written songs.
