Thread Name: Lyr ADD: January Man (Dave Goulder)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: January Man
I'm going to make you all jealous now!
About 18 months ago I was up in Rosehall (Dave's Village in Sutherland) to see Mike Mara.
It was a great night and, as always up there, the concert turned into a great cheilidh with most of the audience having a song to sing.
I've known Dave for 20 odd years now and have never heard him sing "January Man" himself. He had become a bit quirky about it, as is his want!
This night however, my partner Morag asked Dave to sing January man and to our surprise he said OK and gave the definitive rendering of the song.
There is something special about a songwriter singing his own song.
