Joe Stead

Profile:
Joe Stead started singing folk songs over 40 years ago at his rugby club the Old Askeans in South East London. As a disciple of Pete Seeger he had discovered folk music in the late 1950’s visiting the many now infamous folk clubs that had sprung up around Soho at the time. He died 28 March 2017.

Since those very early days Joe has played at all the major folk festivals in Britain and has toured America more times than he can count. In 1998 he performed for the Philadelphia Folk Song Society, which is probably the most prestigious folk song society in America.
