GUEST,cusco Anyone know of Tom Yates (91* d) RE: Anyone know of Tom Yates 29 Mar 10


Sad to hear he's gone without much recognition. I remember seeing him at Stockport College Folk club upstairs at The Odfellows hall on Greek St and a few other places. The song I remember most is The Sandpiper. It was in the Repertoire of The Pennine Folk. I'll check if it's on one their two LP's. The first I would think.
Fantastic song. Can't remember too much of the rest of his act but at the formative time of many singers he was way in front of most of them.
I also remember a Carthy/Swarb concert at the college itself where the compere sang Sandpiper instead of one of his usual songs. We'd wondered how he was going to play it and it turned out to be the perfect choice. Can't remember his name but its always stood out in my memories.
