Fred Wedlock (23 May 1942 – 4 March 2010) was a folk singer best known for his UK hit single "The Oldest Swinger In Town". He performed at many venues in Britain and Europe, presented programmes for West Country TV and acted with the Bristol Old Vic, as well as undertaking after-dinner speaking engagements. Fred Wedlock was born in the old Bristol Maternity Hospital in Southwell Street, Kingsdown, Bristol.

Fred Wedlock, who has died of a heart attack aged 67, was another such singer and, although he never achieved the same national recognition as Connolly, Carrott and Harding, he did have chart success in 1981 with The Oldest Swinger in Town. The song helped to extend his singing career, but it also led to parallel careers as an actor in his home city of Bristol, and as a radio and television presenter. Anderson became co-founder of the Village Thing record label, which released Wedlock's album, The Folker, in 1971. Only when the album had sold 20,000 copies (remarkably high for a folk album at the time) did Fred decide to turn professional. Wedlock continued as a popular folk club performer, with new albums every couple of years including, in 1979, The Oldest Swinger in Town, with accompaniment from Chris Newman.

Fred Wedlock-Oldest Swinger In Town (live). G D G When you're scoring with a chick in a disco bar, C Em Take her home in your hairy little car, G B7 Em C Then you find you went to school with her ma and pa, G D You're the oldest swinger in town. G D G When you won't look in the mirror in the light of day, C Em Swear you've dyed it when your hair turns grey, G B7 Em C When you zip up your trousers and your belly's in the way, G D G You're the oldest swinger in town
