“A fascinating insight into the Bristol folk scene of the late 60s and early 70s and
Fred’s national acclaim with his hit record Oldest Swinger In Town.”
The Post, Bristol

Fred Wedlock, born in the heart of Bristol, reckoned his first professional engagement was as a toddler singing in his parents’ pub.
He became a star of the vibrant Bristol folk scene of the Sixties, and joined the likes of Billy Connolly, Jasper Carrott and Mike Harding in the Seventies.
Years later, his novelty single Oldest Swinger in Town propelled him to national stardom – but his heart was in the West.

In this biography John Hudson celebrates Fred Wedlock, a true Funnyman of Folk.
