GUEST,Kevin Irving 2020 Obit: Jim Irvine of Marsden (20) RE: 2020 Obit: Jim Irvine of Marsden 22 Sep 20

A unique multi-instrumental talent and raconteur and superb front man for the Marsden Inn Folk Club.

Who else could have cajoled a “floor spot” from an unexpected passing superstar because the club had a huge act lined up for a sell-out night. Yes, Christy Moore filled until the beleaguered Five Hand Reel arrived in their repaired Mercedes van.

I was fortunate enough to be involved in Youth and Community Work in Jarrow and Jim became my manager. The wind-ups and appropriate sending up continued.

You made people smile!

We could have been related you know? Through an accident caused by illiteracy - my Grandfather was John Irvine.

RIP gaffer

Thinking of Enid, John and Sarah
