I'll go thru mine from when I was over, but I don't think I have many.
The only 'festival' ones would be at the Yorkshire Gather 04.

I wrote a song based on one of those photos Micca took of Col It's about remembering him and the way you can look at something and really feel the timelessness. Sometimes water, sometimes the sky, and sometimes, a photo.

Bright Water & the Endless Sky

The sun is low as the day it fades
Wild birds ride the wind and fly
Tides and seasons will not wait
What shines beyond this sunset gate?
Bright water and the endless sky

You can sail for days and not reach land
Wild birds ride the wind and fly
Clear blue above, and here below
We long for where we may not go
Bright water and the endless sky

I saw a photograph of you
Wild birds ride the wind and fly
The sun behind shone through your hair
The world was yours for a moment there
Bright water and the endless sky

And up into that endless blue
Wild birds ride the wind and fly
And here, we dream from diamond sand
At the place forever touches land
Bright water and the endless sky

That time has come around again when we will all be thinking of Colin. Not being on here until now I didn't quite know which thread to pick up on, but this seems appropriate.
Our family memories of Colin were a great help when we heard of his passing. A favourite one was Otley Folk Festival 2001. The first time we had been & he told us to arrive early & he would sort us a nice level spot for our van, which he did. On the Friday morning having offered to help & being told he was o.k we ventured up the Chevin & looked down on the campsite to see colin waving his arms franticaly & shouting "more loo's this way" (well that's what we imagined he was shouting as we couldn't quite hear)at a lorry load of portaloo's. My daughter nicknamed him "more loo's Colin" from then on. After that year he stayed with us when he was indulging in his other passion, Vintage vehicles, & a great time we always had.
My daughter now 23 still thinks of him as more loo's colin when reminiscing about festival events of the past. May his memory live on through this site as I am sure there are lots of stories funny, serious, happy & sad people still could tell about this wounderful gentleman.

We shared the same surname and he always gave me a hug and boomed "Daughter dear" so loudly, and my Mum was called his "Wife" a lot. She got some very funny looks turning up places with my Dad soon after he passed away. He was a truly wonderful Gentleman and I miss him still.

My favorite memory of Colin was in fall of 2004. He knew I was traveling to England in summer of 2005 and asked me if I would sing at his wedding. I told him that not only would I be happy to sing, but I would write a new song especially for the two of them. When I finished the song and was recording the CD, I phoned Colin to let him know that I would be dedicating the song and the album to them both. He laughed that huge ColK laugh and said, "Christ mate, don't do that. I broke up with her months ago." I miss my friend.

Mike

A great memory for me as regards Col was when he first came to the Getaway at Havre de Grace. I kept hearing about this great bear of a lad "who gave the best hugs ever". I let it be known that I was known as the best hugger in these parts and no massive Brit was cobbing my title. When we met (me being just a wee bit massive meself) we shook hands and then promptly tried to give each other a rib crushing, head popping, tear wringing, snot flinging hug the likes of which civilized folks had not seen before whereupon we both fell out in laughter. Later we made poor little Maddie ( has she grown into a rare beauty or what?) tell us who was the best hugger. Smart one, that lass, she promptly declared it a tie and said Col gave the best UK hugs and I gave the best US hugs.



He was a big man, but his heart was almost too big for his body. We only met a few times but the bond was instantaneous. I miss him to this day. It is hard to imagine never seeing that handsome smile again.

This morning I awoke with the fuzzy feeling that I had had a visit in my dream from the great, huggable ColK hisself. I rummaged around to find the 'portable hug' tee shirt and the Shellback sweatshirt that belonged to him and had the sweatshirt with me all day. Funny how things creep up on you sometimes.

Peace,

Stanley Accrington sang a song he had written in tribute to him in the Metropole (Colin's "territory" as a steward there) at Whitby festival this year. There were a lot of lumpy throats around, including Stanley's.
