Music in the bookshop – Joules the Fox

Music in the bookshop with Joules the Fox

UPPSALA | Sunday 19 Feb at 17.15. Free.

Some years ago, a fox walked into a bookshop – brought song-shaped stories and sang for us!

On Sunday 19th of February she is back in the shop with her new record If Time Is in tow.

Joules the Fox is a singer, songwriter, producer but above all: a wanderer. These last years, she roamed through various countries and crossed continents playing over 200 stages, ships and shops, writing many a song and singing, ah well, all the time.

Always accompanied by Guitar, Harmonizer and Looper, this one-fox-band will take you to places she has been to and been creating – some real, some imaginary.

UPPSALA Sunday 19th February after hours at about 17:15
Free, bring a friend. Voluntary contributions to the artist (bring cash for the passing hat).
