Thread Name: Who's songwriter John Pole?
Subject: RE: Who's John Pole?
Met John about 5 years ago- he came down with a bagful of songs- he was (probably still is) a Punch & Judy man himself. His songs are very complex & especially suited to unaccompanied singing, where their powerful storytelling casts a spell. Very interesting man. I lost contact with him after a bit (my fault, not his)- he wrote a startlingly strong song about the New Carers, which deserves a wide hearing- well in the tradition of Sing Out.
