Fred Jordan was first recorded in 1952 singing songs he had learnt from his family, from workmates and visiting Gypsies in his native Shropshire. With the emerging folk revival of the 1960s he began singing at folk clubs all over the country and over the next forty years he appeared at most major folk festivals. After a lifetime of singing he is viewed by many as the iconic English folk singer.
