Kevin Sheils

28 March 2008

Kevin  SheilsKevin has been involved in singing, MCing and organising several London Folk clubs over the years, including The Enterprise at Chalk Farm, The Chestnuts at Walthamstow and the present Walthamstow Folk Club.

He is a regular presenter of the Traditional Music Hour on Resonance 104.4FM, and some of his old shows are syndicated on Radio Britfolk.

He was a concert MC at Sidmouth Folk Festival for 18 years and still is at Towersey. He has also introduced concerts at the Purcell Room as part of “Folk in the Fall”, and at The Barbican.

Kevin and his colleagues at Walthamstow Folk Club gave a lot of enthusiastic advice and support to us two newbies on our steep hike up the learning curve of setting up a new venue. He was our very first singer when the Goose opened with Dave Swarbrick back in 2008!
