Suffet Visiting the UK in Autumn 2015 (23) Visiting the UK in Autumn 2015 22 Feb 14

Greetings from New York City!

My wife Marilyn and I plan to return to the United Kingdom in late September and early October 2015 to visit with friends and relatives. As always, London will be our gateway city, and we will try to stop by as many folk clubs as possible. Other than that, we have no specific plans.

I will be contacting several folk clubs that have booked me in the past as a guest performer, and I would welcome suggestions from fellow Mudcatters. I am best described as an Old Fashioned Folksinger, and my repertoire is an eclectic mix of American folk music, including old-time, ragtime, blues, ballads, cowboy songs, hobo songs, union songs, trucker songs, topical-political songs, Gospel songs, and more. Some of my songs are traditional, some by singers such as Woody Guthrie and Utah Phillips, and some are ones that I wrote myself in traditional styles. You can find out more about me and my music by going to and then following the links.

As I have done when visiting the UK in the past, I will not take any payment for myself. I will instead donate whatever fee I would have received back to the club that books me. I can also accept unpaid "hotspots" and opening sets. All of this is possible because the New York City Teachers Retirement System serves as my patron. For that I can thank unionization!

That's about all for now. If you would like to get in touch with me, please do so by e-mail to rather than through Mudcat.

Thank you.

Kindest regards,
Steve Suffet
