I met John Taylor in 1976 or 77. I was visiting from Canada, and taking in as many folk festivals as possible. One was the Redcar Folk Festival.
I met John and told him I was visiting from Canada and that I did a folk program on a small independent radio station in Calgary.
He couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful and accommodating!
He introduced me to Vin Garbutt and got me a copy of Vin's "Eston, California." He also introduced me to Willie Scott.
I have thought very fondly of Johnny Taylor and that time for the last 40-odd years. (Still have a Cutty Wren Folk Club sticker on my fiddle case.)
I'll echo others' best wishes to him and his family for a full and speedy recovery.
