Thread Name: 2020 Obit: Jim Irvine of Marsden
Subject: RE: Jim Irvine of Marsden
In the first tribute to Jim that I read last week it was stated "that he didn't suffer fools gladly" and I was to discover that during my first three days of active participation on the North East scene. However over the next few years we were to become good friends and our club, South Tyne Folk and Blues worked very closely with The Marsden Inn folk club and Jim and I did so within the Durham County Folk Alliance. A great bloke and the best folk club MC that I have ever seen. I was planning to be in South Shields for his funeral on Tuesday but I am devastated that due to the recent restrictions I will now not be able to do so.
