The Old Courts are delighted to welcome the Julie July Band to our Theatre for what will be a special night celebrating the music of Sandy Denny.

From dreamy acoustic melodies to driving progressive folk-rock, she was one of the UK’s best singer songwriters of the British Folk-Rock movement.

Melody Maker readers twice voted her ‘Best British Female Singer” in 1970 and 1971. Her most famous song “Who Knows Where the Time Goes?”, was voted favourite folk-track of all time by listeners of BBC Radio 2 and has been covered by many artists incl:- Judy Collins, Nina Simone, Eva Cassidy and Kate Rusby.

Now, 40 years on “The band perform a selection of her songs from: The Strawbs, Fotheringay, Fairport Convention and from her own solo career.
