Thread Name: Ted Edwards' 65th birthday! (25 April 2004)
Subject: RE: Ted Edwards' 65th birthday!
Ted has agreed to let me record him singing his stuff... last Thursday, May 6th, he sang 'Cross Country Smoking' and 'Coal Hole Cavalry' (which he described as 'a medley of my greatest hit'!) at the Railway Folk Club, Heatley - which pleased our guest, Vin Garbutt, immensely! There was a crowd over of seventy people present...
It's really heartwarming to see Ted enjoying singing in public again after all these years. Admittedly he has been known, on occasions, to sing a song at a singaround, and fairly frequently reads his poems and monologues, but it took some bottle to risk singing for such a large (paying) audience!
Watch this space!
