Jeremy Taylor

Profile:
Jeremy Taylor (born 24 November 1937 in Newbury, Berkshire) set South Africa alight in the sixties with his "Ag Pleez Deddy" and was then banished from South Africa for ridiculing apartheid. After two years on the West End stage in WAIT A MINIM, a South African musical revue, he became a leading entertainer on the British folk circuit with songs like "Jobsworth", " Red Velvet Steering Wheel Cover Driver " and "Prawns in the Game".

He has made fifteen solo albums, five shared albums, ten singles, four EP's, three CD's and one 78, released in Johannesburg on the african 'Bush' label New Era in 1962 and featuring his 'Kwela' style song 'Tsotsi Style'

For six years he was the television face of South Africa's highest-selling brand of tea. He published the book "AG PLEEZ DEDDY- Songs and Reflexions" in 1992 and in 1994 returned to the UK.

He has settled with his wife in Mid -Wales and continues to entertain widely in folk clubs. He also lectures in schools on the subject of South Africa and in 2000-2001 was Artist in Residence at Wellington College, Crowthorne. He has also co-produced a new album of songs and poems by Sidney Carter for Stainer & Bell entitled LORD OF THE DANCE. He and his wife share five children and two grandchildren.
