Folk singer, songwriter and guitarist Vikki Clayton is set to perform in Norwich as part of a UK tour.

The acclaimed musician has performed alongside many well-known bands and big folk names, notably Fairport Convention and Fotheringay, not to mention Ralph Mctell, John Martyn, Richard Thompson and Ashley Hutchings, as well as having a successful solo career.

Now living and performing in New Zealand, she will be appearing in Norwich as part of her UK solo tour this summer.

She first came to prominace in the 1980s when she was invited to sing with cult folk-rock band Ragged Heroes who were invited to perform at one of the early Cropredy Festivals in 1984.

When the band drifted apart she released solo albums and somebody sent Fairport Convention a copy of her album Lost Lady Found, beginning a long association of appearing with the folk stalwarts.

She fronted the newly formed Fotheringhay, known as “The Nerve” and forming her own band featuring stellar performers Clive Bunker, Fred T Baker and Chris Conway.

Last year she released her latest solo album, Messenger .

She will be supported in Norwich by TANZ, a locally-based, multi-instrumental trio playing music inspired by the folk traditions of eastern Europe.
