Fred Wedlock

Also known as Fried Wetleg. Fred is one of the breed of Folk performers who are entirely (or almost) humerous in their stories and songs, rather than traditionalist. Other such performers are Billy Connolly, Max Boyce, Mike Harding and Richard Digance.

Coming from Bristol and using his accent to great effect, Fred performs in Folk Clubs and has several recordings and TV appearances including The Great Western Thunderbox.

Sometimes billed as part of the 'Scrumpy and Western' circuit along with The Wurzels, Pigsty Hill Light Orchestra and The Yetties.

Fred is probably best known for 'The Oldest Swinger in Town' - a single and an LP of the 70s.
