Video: Southbound Fred “Ballad of Grateful Fred”

Here in Merseyside we have americana coming out of our ears, and part of its illustrious history is down to Barry Jones who fronts the Southbound Attic Band, one of Liverpool’s musical institutions. This cracking tune is a tribute to the long-running folk/americana evening Grateful Fred’s founded by Colin Maddocks.
