Subject: RE: Origins: Pendle, oh Pendle / Old Pendle
We were lucky enough to know Brian, and even recorded a version of him singing the song the song when we lived in Lancashire. His only claim that we knew was that he had added a new verse, and it's pure Brian Osborne, can almost hear him singing it now. Spent many happy weekends with him at the Ingleton gathering. One of his party tricks was to play a really intricate intro to one song and then launch into something completely different, throwing the audience into hysterical laughter. A real gentleman and sadly missed. We are lucky enough to have a copy of his solo album ay fond kiss, and Pendle is on there. he signed it for us and it's a treasured item, Thanks for the thread it's brought back some nice memories. All the best John & Marie
