GUEST,Jim Knowledge the uk folk revival in 2019 (330* d) RE: the uk folk revival in 2019 11 Oct 19


I `ad old Eric Tebble in my cab once. `e was raised in Deptford but moved out to Basildon and married Ethel Spelter, the last of the Essex women `ot dip galvanisers. She wrote that book, "Zinc or Swim" with all the songs she collected. Essential reading.
I said, "Morning Eric. Long time, no see. `ere, I know you post to that Mudcat. There was a bit about Deptford in it. when you were a kid at school there did you `ave anybody to come and sing folk songs for you?"
`e said, "Yes Jim. I do recall we `ad this geezer come along one time, a right charmer, `e was. `e `ad us all singing songs from "English Folk Songs for Schools". I`ve still got my copy."
I said, " Did you find it educational?"
`e said," I suppose so. But more for the `eadmaster."
I said, "Go on then."
`e said, "When they all came in the next morning they found `e `ad `alf-inched the pianner!"


Whaddam I Like??
