Thread Name: Performers at Bunjies, London
Subject: RE: Performers at Bunjies, London
One of the most beautiful souls who was a regular player was Peter Cadle, who wrote a book about Bunjies performers called 'Nights in the Cellar'! He sadly died a few years ago at a far too young age (61 I think) Do look him up on Youtube. His songs are exquisitely beautiful and he was one of the most sincere people I have ever met. He was also a poet who would knock on people's doors presenting his works in a most modest fashion. His book may not be available now, but he mentioned regulars including Russ Shipton of guitar tutorial books fame who is very much alive, Sippy Azizollah (recently deceased), Karen Bates, Pat Orchard, Hratch, Robin Willow, Dave Russell, Wizz Jones, Bert Jansch. Less regular were Paul Simon,Jeff Buckley, Cat Stevens, Bowie, Davey Graham, Suzanne Chawner, John Cooper Clarke. Not enough time now to list any more. I don't think any of them gave up music until the grim reaper took them away.
