GUEST,Terry McDonald 2007 Obit: Gerry Fox - ex The Tinkers (19) RE: Obit: Gerry Fox - ex The Tinkers 27 Nov 07


I'm sorry to hear that Gerry has died. I only knew him for a week but remember him well - it was the Kilkenny Beer Festival of 1966 when the Tinkers (Gerry, Mick Flynn, and Maureen Kennedy-Martin) were one of four English (sic)folk groups chosen to compete against Ireland's best in the Festival's 'ballad singing competition.' (The Fettlers, the Kerry Singers and my own group, the Biddles, were the others.) We all spent a lot of time together and Gerry,on more than one occasion, explained to me the history of some of the Irish songs that we (rather naively) sang in those days. A nice man.
