Vins career has spanned more than 40 years and includes world wide touring which according to his fans, makes him some kind of elder statesman of folk. His songs were inspired by the folk tradition at the beginning of his career and although they still are, they have transformed into gritty social comment and life observations. He is renowned for his hilarious intros, but for him his song lyrics are the crux of his performance. This is Vins 48th year as a professional performer and he is a songwriter, whistle player and guitarist. His material spans life and he was awarded Radio 2 Folk Awards for Best Live Act Award 2001. The performance is at the folk club, which meets at the Priory Centre in St Neots, on March 14. Admission is £10\/£12 and tickets are available from the club or on the door or by calling: 01234 376278 to book in advance. Doors will open at 7.45pm and the evening will begin at 8pm.
