Julie Felix - In the Spotlight

25 Mar 2018 7:30pm

Stromness Town Hall

Julie Felix recently celebrated 50 years in the world of music. In 1964 Julie arrived in England after leaving California and became the first solo folk artist to be signed to a major British record company when she signed with Decca. In 1966 Julie became the resident singer on the amazingly popular TV programme “The Frost Report”, and quickly became a household name. She went on to appearing her own TV series on BBC1 and BBC2 and recorded hit singles on Mickey Most’s RAK label.

After a break from the music world in the 1980’s, Julie began singing for Latin American Refugees, for woman’s and gay rights and for peace projects including protests against the war in the Gulf. Julie created the Remarkable Records label and released ‘Bright Shadows’, her first album for 10 years. In June 2013, Julie performed at the prestigious Leicester Square Theatre to celebrate her 75th birthday and in October she was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen, Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla.

“Julie cares passionately about this world and its future. And she cares deeply about music and it’s healing powers. There are those among us who just have to play and sing, to whom there can be no question of quitting; to whom their work is not a job but a calling. Julie Felix is one such musician.” Steve Harley
