Thread Name: Lyr Req: Farewell to the Gold (Paul Metsers)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Farewell To The Gold???
I believe Paul still has copies for sale and could use your pennies.
Paul was doing fund raising concerts for Nic Jones as well as his own gigs with his group (Cave Canem).
Then about 15-20 years ago, while returning home from a gig, Paul also had a car accident!
His hand was damaged and his Martin as well, not as bad as Nic's injuries, but enough to cramp his style and ruin his career in the folk circuit for some time. Although he has recovered, I don't know how much singing he does now, or if he still writes songs.
He now makes a modest living, making things out of wood in Kendal and has a site here if you want to contact him.
