As in 2007, Linda and I sang 'Sweet Minerva' in the Minerva at the Hull 'Sea Fever' Festival this weekend then stepped outside and remembered Colin.
His was the last name to be read out on the Shellback Roll of Remembrance as they sang the Farewell Shanty in Ruscadors.

Happy Memories.

Catherine, Be happy you knew him. I know I am one of many who is!

It's taken me sometime to actually write this. But as the 2nd anniversay is coming up in a few days I just felt the need to say that when I read this thread 2 yrs ago with tears running down my face I also felt a sense of happiness that Colin was obviously loved by so many friends. I'm so glad that he found his niche in life and that he had you all and that he loved what he was doing.
I was at the funeral and the sheer numbers of people there came as a big shock to me and made me realise that he had a whole new life that I was never a part of. Inevitably his death opened up a whole can of very emotional and mixed memories for me that I thought were buried a long time ago. It's been difficult at times to cope with all this but with help and support from some very special people I'm getting there. Most of you don't know me, but may guess who I am, Keith's is the only name I recognise (yes May & Aug 1982), but I'd like to send thanks to all you special people who knew and loved Colin. I'll be thinking about him especially on Monday..cheers Colin and sorry I stopped being a part of your life..

I'm sorry its taken me a while to get to write this but here it is... How sad I was when I heard the news that Colin had passed away.

The sadness felt was as though he was a member of my own family. He always had a big hug and a smile for me at the many Festivals I've been to and took part in over the last 20 years.

So very missed by all.

Don't know who thought it was good to crash this thread but I thought people (like me) who reopened it would like an update.

His Mum has coped well. She's taken herself off to Whitby for the week as she has done since Col was small. We got a postcard from her this morning. His house is now on the market and she's got through a lot of the bags etc which came from there - but not all :-) She still talks about the fact he had so many unknown (to her)friends on the folk circuit and is pleased he was so well loved.

I 'rehomed' all but an odd one of the 'Col K permahugs'. The Shellback Sweatshirt she gave me last time we were over is going to America with Micca to be included in the Getaway Silent Auction where it will raise money for a good cause. Thanks to all who wanted one.

He is missed an awful lot by many people (including me) for himself - let alone by a lot of festival organisers. However he's still 'there' as when we need him past conversations/situations come to mind and it helps solve the problems.

Love and hugs

To compensate for the crass spam that has brought this thread back up to the top, I'd like to say that i was thinking about Colin the other day.

I was making elderflower cordial, in preparation for the next stage which is elderflower and lemon vodka. The last time I made this was a few years ago. I brought it to Warwick and I remember sharing it with Colin and some of his team. I'll never forget his reaction...

"That's bloody awful!" he grimaced. I found myself laughing as I was making it. Cheers, Col.

Its just over a week since Colin's mum phoned Ruth (my wife) and me with the news. She had only just found his address book. Writing about Col is hard. We met sometime in late 1968 (Nov pos) at Alsager College. Col had just started I had been there a year. Half way through his first year he had joined me and the crew running the college folk club. In 1982 we did a job swop - he was my best man in May I was his in August. We are going to miss getting home from work to find his sat outside our home waiting for for a coffee and my annual folk festival visit to Alcester wil be tinged with sadness. One last bit of information I think Col went to his first fesival at Whitby in 1975.

Colin and I go back a long way, probably more than 30 years, he used to turn up at The Mytholmroyd Dances and help to put out the chairs and tables. He made friends with my children and they still remember him.

Our paths have crossed over the years, he's always been a great support and good friend. In more recent years we have worked together as part of the stewarding team at Whitby, this year he was finally given a Team Leader badge, something he had been joking about for years and which had never happened.(See Bekka's photo)
During the week we shared a meal together and had our daily business meeting, these times I will treasure along with the big hug he gave me on the Friday night. He'd had a great week.

I will miss him at lots of different places and feel enriched by his friendship. A sad loss.

See funeral thread for origins .....


Colin's Funeral Song

We set off early morning on a clear and sunny day
We 'ad to go to Yarmouth, so we knew we could not stay.
So driving down I wrote this for a very special gent,
So if you couldn't be there you could 'ear just 'ow it went.

They came from near they came from far,
They filled up every pew,
She knew 'e was a steward,
But 'is mother never knew how much this Yorkshire lad was loved,
From Brighton to Dundee.
And they took a lot of food with them so they could 'ave their tea.

Some they came by train or plane,
Some they came by car,
Some met up at the Rhubarb, so they could 'ave a jar.
Then shared lifts together, so they would not be late
But the car park was so full they 'ad to park outside the gate!

The funeral directors came close to stand and stare,
The vicar said he's never heard such singing like that there,
They sang so loud, they sang so clear they, made the rafters ring!
And 'e asked us were we free on Sunday – at his church to sing?

There was a bit of crying, but the tissues they was shared,
And lots and lots of hugging, as we all showed we cared.
We loved 'im and we'll miss 'im, but life it still goes on.
And we will all remember 'im when we join in this song.

I've just got back from two weeks away from the Mudcat on holiday and then in London and am devastated to hear the news and to have missed the funeral. Colin helped me so much ten years ago when I was organising stewards for the first couple of Saddleworth festivals. His steady common sense was an absolute rock and it was always such a joy to bump into him at subsequent festivals.

I don't know how he managed to feel like a dad to me when he was only four years older, but he did. You don't know what the meaning of anyone's life is until they have gone but now Colin's is clear - you only have to read the postings above. What a wonderful man!

I first met Col in 2002 at Whitby the year after I had covered for him at his Metropole Venue in 2001 when he was missing for some reason. I got to know him better in subsequent years and at other festivals including Warwick and wonder who will be big enough to fill the many empty spaces he has left.

Hope you've gone to a better festival now big lad!

What a character! Who's going to greet us now when we arrive at the various Fests? Spoke to his mum at the 'WAKE' and she said she had been thinking of a rather smaller occasion, and was not going to attend the slightly bigger 'VENUE'. In the event she was so pleased to see so many people celebrating his life with song, and rest assured it will stand her in good stead in the future knowing that the huge crowd who attended was only a small group compared to the number of people whose lives he had touched.

There were more than 140 of us at the funeral. The Chapel at the crematorium, designed to hold about 70 had people all round the walls,Shellbacks standing in a group on the dias at the frount and one or two people who could not get through the door. The minister said afterwards, he had never heard such singing and what were we all doing on Sunday! Colin's Mum seemed bemused by the crowds but smiled to find her son so loved. The Jacobs Join at the reception was splendid and the singing of the expected high standard. Unfortunately we could not stay very long as we had to put the Hatter (my son) on a train back home to Edinburgh.
