Veteran BBC Radio 2 broadcaster, singer and guitarist Nick Barraclough will perform at Fairycroft House in Saffron Walden next month.

The event is part of Joanna's Place - a club night run by Saffron Walden singer Joanna Eden, who is Nick's former bandmate.

The concert will take place at 7.30pm on Saturday, April 27.

Tickets are available from the Tourist Information Centre, Amy Louise flower shop and online at

Nick's show Nick Barraclough's Country ran for 15 years on BBC Radio 2, during which time he met many musical legends. He is now well known on the Cambridge scene as a raconteur.

Joanna said: "Nick and I performed many gigs together because we're great fans of the singer/songwriter era of the late 60s and early 70s. 

"It was great to sing songs by my heroes Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Carole King with someone who had met them and championed their music on BBC Radio for years!"

Nick will be performing his own compositions and other blues, country and folk classics alongside his band.


Band members include Myke Clifford on sax, drummer Mal Hyde Smith and the Parkinson show's bass player of 20 years Dave Olney.

Joanna will host the event and join Nick and the band for a few of the numbers.

There will be a licensed bar on the night.
