Singer, Songwriter, Humanitarian and Environmentalist: Julie Felix
What began for little Julie as simple home entertainment, while her father and his friends played Mariachi music into the small hours of the morning, has been this remarkable woman’s vocation for half a century and fortunately for us it still is!
This June, singer-songwriter, humanitarian and environmentalist, Julie Felix heads to Darwen Library Theatre for an intimate evening with an icon of the 60s.
This tour is a celebration of over 50 years as a singer songwriter and her belief in the power of music to enhance people’s lives and bring about change…not forgetting her love and rapport with audiences!
In 1964, Julie arrived in England after leaving California and hitchhiking through Europe with the guitar her father had given her.
It didn’t take long before Julie took the seat as the resident singer on the popular television show The Frost Report, and quickly became a household name in the UK.
Only four years she arrived in the UK, Julie began hosting her own television series, Once More With Felix; the first colour series produced by the BBC. Guests included Spike Milligan, Richard Harris, Leonard Cohen, Dusty Springfield, Donovan, and Jimmy Page.
Throughout the 60s and 70s Julie’s career flourished, and her music reflected her heartfelt beliefs and her love affair with nature.
In the 1980s she moved back to California and took a break from the music world. An experience on a peace march in Central America in the late 80’s inspired Julie to pick up her guitar and start singing again.
In October 2013, Julie was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles.
What began for little Julie as simple home entertainment, as her father and his friends played Mariachi music into the small hours of the morning, has actually been this remarkable woman’s vocation for half a century, and fortunately for us, it still is!
For those that have yet to see Julie, the only way to experience her songs and story telling is to see one of her shows.
