Steve & Julie Wigley
Julie Wigley is a singer/songwriter from Derby and she and husband Steve are regulars at Folk Clubs around the country. Her output of original songs has been phenomenal. Since 2015 they have produced seven albums, a songbook and a poetry/songbook illustrated by Steve. Their eighth album, 'Time Train', comprising 17 new songs, is recorded and will be released in the Spring.
They have featured on folk programmes on Radio Derby, Lincolnshire, Shropshire, Hereford and Worcester, among others and performed last year on the main stage at Moira Furnace Folk festival and Derby Folk festival, as well as the Yarmouth Sea Songs and Shanties Festival, Isle of Wight. Julie's songs always have a story to tell and a number of them feature their home county of Derbyshire.
Julie's song 'At the Passing of the Storm' won the 2020 Virtual John Birmingham Cup, at Whitby Folk Week and she won the 2021 Write a Song for Lincolnshire competition with her song 'The Usher Imp'
Julie's song 'The Spoon in the Brook' was a former winner of the Lymm Folk Club songwriting competition
Joined this year by bass player Phil Lawrence, they are delighted to be back performing in front of live audiences.
