Pop & Rock Bands in Norfolk

Although many pop and rock acts have originated in Norfolk, there are some names which are bigger than others. Many musical circles might well consider Peter Bellamy to be one of the biggest.

Although Peter Bellamy was born in Bournemouth, he grew up in Warham, Norfolk, and attended Fakenham Grammar School before moving on to the Norwich School of Art. He dropped out of college in 1965 and became a member of The Young Tradition, with Roystoon Wood and Heather Wood. The group specialised in traditional British folk music, sung without any instrumental accompaniment, at a time when British folk was undergoing a huge revival. They went on to record three albums together before splitting up in 1969 over musical differences.

Bellamy then moved on to solo work, although these were mostly sold independently due to the nature of folk music economics during the 70s and 80s. In 1991, Peter Bellamy committed suicide after becoming depressed at a drop in folk club bookings.

Folk has undoubtedly influenced many pop and rock bands, particularly in recent years, and particularly in Norfolk.
