Thread Name: Obit: Cyril Tawney-RIP (21 April 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Cyril Tawney-RIP
A great loss to us all. I first went to see Cyril Tawney at Chester a few years ago because I remembered he had been a favourite of my Dad in the sixties. I didn't know much about him then, but he did a CT in depth session where he talked about the songs he sang . His warmth, umanity and decency shone through.
Since then I have been to a lot of festivals and almost every good song about life at sea I enquired about turned out to be one of his.
There does not seem to me any doubt that Cril will always be with us.
