It is with great sadness that we heard the news of Ralph's passing last week. Not only was he a great musician, he was a wonderful friend to me and Julia and, along with so many others on the folk scene, we will miss him greatly. Rest in peace dear Ralphie.

South Bank Centre

Of Mutability by Jo Shapcott
Part of the series: Stewart Lee’s Austerity Binge

The current English folk revival owes a lot to Nic Jones. Despite a career-ending car accident nearly 30 years ago, his early recordings have inspired and influenced countless current stars of the folk scene. In this very special concert, produced in association with Sidmouth FolkWeek, some of his biggest fans pay tribute to Nic by sharing their favourites from his repertoire. The highlight of the concert is Nic himself returning to the stage for a reunion of one of his old bands, Bandoggs, and a debut with his son, Joseph.
Tickets on sale now from the South Bank Centre.
