The Folk Music scene in London has always been vibrant. Simon and Garfunkel, Dylan, they all lived in London for that reason.
Tonight, I went in excellent company to the Walthamstow Folk Cub to see Pete Atkin.
Pete who? I can hear you say. Pete and Clive James (yes, that one) formed a songwriting partnership that has lasted (on and off) for over thirty years. And they are good. Browse the discography and the website to discover more. If you like brilliant words, and how they can become still better with the right music added, you are in for a treat.
Oh yeah - Pete is not folk, but that's the nearest category for him.
