Roy Bailey

Primary Song Genres: 

Roy Bailey, (20 October 1935 – 20 November 2018) was an English socialist folksinger. Colin Irwin from the music magazineMojo said Bailey represented "the very soul of folk's working class ideals... a triumphal homage to the grassroots folk scene as a radical alternative to the mainstream music industry." He was close friends with a number of the greatest folk activists in the British music scene and recorded wonderful covers of many great songs such as Robb Johnson's "More than Enough", Si Kahn's "What You Do with What You've Got", Charlie King's "Two Good Arms", and Graham Moore's "Dance to Tom Paine's Bones".
