For 40 years our own Pete Waddon (Twitchett) has created beautiful folk music, told folk stories, radio shows, performing for children in schools, traveling and performing all over England, a real example of what a folk artist is and should be. His CD - In from the cold is a masterpiece IMO. I just wanted to take the time to thank Pete for so many years of great music. Anyone want to share some Pete stories with us here is a good chance to put him on the spot. I was just listening to "The gentleman soldier" wonderful work my friend

God Bless you Pete

I've seen Pete Twitchett perform at the Milk Maid in Bury St Edmunds, Fantastic performance and storytelling. I've also had the pleasure of sitting in on a sing around in the local pub which really showed off his diversity and wit! Check the album out if you get the chance!

Keep doing it Pete

Pete is one of the good ones. There's something limiting about communicating on a computer screen with these little black squiggly characters we type out. Just as in music, it only occasionally happens when the warmth of a person comes through the screen or out through the apeakers. Miraculously, the person is there despite the inherent limitations of the medium. I've come to know Pete through the kitchen table thread, and I mean KNOW him. I admire his generosity of spirit and his modesty. Perhaps someday I'll get to hear him in person.

Kudos to you Pete, and to you Dan for doing these threads.

Jerry

I used to go to Waddon Folk Club in the late 60s to mid 70s, hitch-hiking up from Dorking.

My one abiding memory from those days was him singing Battle of New Orleans unaccompanied, no big deal now, but a revelation to me then - you don't HAVE to play the guitar with a song, just 'cos you can. Up to then I only heard ballads sung unaccompanied.

Thanks for that, Pete. (and the songs been in my repertoire ever since in a variety of arrangements.)

Remeber his folk club in croydon in the 70's. Morris danced, I think as a guest with Wheatsheaf at their Christmas party one snowy night. Pete had a magic lantern show, I remeber them performing Three Jolly Rogues of Lynn to his singing.

Hello,

I dunno.....there I was quietly minding my own business and cruising the threads when I did a double take! A thread with my name on it! Gawsh.....

All I can really say is, "Thanks!" It was good to read the comments made.

Yes, John of Kemsing, I do remember Four Square Circle!

Yes, Tug, the shadow puppets were great fun to do. We took them all over and enjoyed them immensely!

Folkwaller.....what price your silence?   :0)

Jerry....what can I say?   

I'm not very good at this promotion lark, but, if you want to hear what Old Dude has been listening to, there are some samples http://cdbaby.com/cd/petetwitchett

Thanks folks,

Hello Deirdre, Hello Wendy,

Good to hear from you.

I tried to do a blue clicky, but it didn't work for some reason! Perhaps some-one can try from their computer...mine doesn't seem to be playing ball at the moment. Could be the crumbs from the hot buttered toast in Jerry's kitchen!

The link is http://cdbaby.com/cd/petetwitchett

CDBaby is a good site with lots of goodies hidden away and you can get the CD from them.

It's good to know that people remember the Waddon with fondness. Although I moved out of the area to pastures new, the club is still going strong in Croydon. Check them out if you are at a loose end in Croydon on a Monday evening!

Must be the computer....still won't clickify! Harrumph!

Hi Pete,
Horniman rag! My dad met my mother in Horniman museum, she was 14, he was 17. They married in 1943 when they were both in the RAF, last year they celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary, he is 89 and mum 85.
Do you remember the clock in the museum, I think it was at 4 oclock each day the 12 disciples process past Jesus, all of them bow to him except Judas who turns the other way!It was one of my favourite days out, the other was Crystal Palce park and the statues(huge) of the dinaseurs.

Hello Wendy,

I haven't been to the museum now for far too long. I must make a return visit. I am, however, assured that the clock has recently been overhauled and still has the procession of disciples every day at 4 p.m.

It has fond memories for me too. One of the benefits of being on the 194 bus route was that it was easily accessible to us!

Best wishes,


Peter

-------------local sessions, the Greyhound at Flempton I think. He sang a sad song about a minstrel who had a broken string on his banjo. At the end of the session I introduced myself and asked Pete to play the song again for my recorder so I could go away and learn it, I haven't done so but the point I make is that he was only too willing to ablige. He was very friendly. Since that occasion we meet fairly regularly, he sings, I listen and we may even be ------------------sorry, someone at the door.

Pete and I did play at the school we sat on the playing field with a group of pupils and Pete sang and entertained, they sang as one, I listened. It was wonderful.
So, I'm getting to know Pete and if you would like too as well, buy his cd it is just great.
Tomorrow we are being recorded by Suffolk Radio at the cafe or at least Pete probably is, I just listen.
After 40 years Peter Twitchett is still a folk singers folk singer and long may it be so.

Yes....you are right....I enjoy taking folk out into the community. This has lead to some amazing and challenging moments....like singing in a boxcar on a very cold public holiday and doing the interval entertainment at a disco!

In the summer Billy and I have " home" concerts in a marquee in the garden, Billy does a bar b q, everyone brings a bottle and we invite someone to do a concert. Very informal and lovely people. How about it Peter? We are not far from you and we could invite mudcatters who live within a car drive to come and swell our numbers.

Hi

Don't know if you remember me but I was Rip Rippingale's 2nd wife. Havn't heard anything of you in yonks but I now live in Coventry. I remember well the weekend we came down for the weekend as you had asked Rip to do support for a concert in a huge marquee for the Scouts. The Ian Campbell folk group were headlining and then because you wouldn't let me play I decided I'd better sing so did my very first singing in public with Rip. ( Nothing like jumping in at the deep end. )

The next day we went to Southend for the day, went on the pier where you did a recording in a booth, can't remember if it was you and Rip together.

By the way did you ever learn to drive.

Oh happy memories.

Hello,

I'm glad that people were able to listen to the piece on Radio Suffolk. They did us proud with a very decent plug for the music as well as the event.

We are lucky to have a thriving scene in our part of the world.

If you are ever in East Anglia, look us up!

Best wishes,

Hello Travelling Singer!

Are you the same one who guested as Travelling Singer from Sussex? If so, welcome to Mudcat! Good to have you aboard.

I regularly visit our local singaround sessions when time allows but I'm not sure about the radio. The Wayland Community Radio has a regular folk programme, and I have appeared on that a couple of times. They have recently gained their full time license from Ofcom, so there will probably be more folk in the future!

Thanks for asking,

Best wishes,

Peter

Hello,

While I was up in the loft this morning I got sidetracked and discovered an old copy of a folk diary from the 1970 somethings called "The Penny Dreadful." I was one of those who was involved in producing it, but I had forgotten I still had a few copies left. What was fascinating was not only the number of clubs there were in SE London in those days, but also the theme of the articles. Is folk music dying? Where have all the audiences gone? I smiled quietly to myself at that point and thought, "Nothing much changes, does it?"

Does anyone else remember "The Penny dreadful?"

Best wishes,


Peter

I just listened to Pete's In from the cold CD. It's good stuff, lots of fun, unpretentious, but a quality performance. It's the kind of music that I'd perform if I were English. There's a lightheartedness to Pete's performances that I really enjoy.
Thanks a lot, Pete - I really enjoyed your CD!

-Joe Offer-



    Here are the notes from the CD:

    This CD is a small snapshot of some of the songs that I enjoy singing. I have also included a couple of monologues. I have remained faithful to the musical influences that shaped my life. First and foremost was Mum, bless her, whose family enjoyed singing. She had uncles who trod the Music Halls and her father played the piano for the silent movies! Dad’s great uncle went over to America to make his fortune and brought back the American songs, an interest that remains alive. Mix that all together with a fine leaven of traditional English music and you have an idea of where I am musically!

    1. The Gentleman Soldier ~ Traditional ~ I have known this song since for ever. It is a good story and a good tune. What more could you want?

    2. The Calico Printer’s Clerk ~ Broadside Ballad ~ Although set in Manchester, there are many other versions. Usually it is the girl who comes of worse in “unhappy in love” songs. I guess the nearest thing today to a Calico Printer’s Clerk would be the chap who takes the money for the guy who prints up the T-shirts!

    3. Dead Dog Scrumpy ~ © Crozier/Sheldon Cinephonic Music Co. Ltd. ~ This song was written by Trevor Crozier. Sadly he was killed in a motorcycle accident. The folk world lost a great talent and I am proud to have called him a friend.

    4. Horniman Rag ~ The Horniman museum is a fascinating museum in South London.

    5. Jim Oglethwaite ~ Monologue ~ My take on an old joke!

    6. The Mitcham Line Shunty ~ I used to commute daily on a two coach train that ran between Wimbledon and West Croydon. Another of my own songs…set to a well known tune!

    7. My Goodness My Guinness ~ unknown ~ This is actually taken from an old advert for Guinness Beer. I found it in a tram car on the Seaton Tramway and set it to music.

    8. Billy Bones ~ Traditional ~ I first heard this on a schools music programme way back when I was 10. I loved it then, and still love it today!

    9. Charlie Motts ~ Music Hall ~ A South London Music Hall song. There are those who say it should be Charlie Mopps, but I’ve always known it as Motts (from Mottingham, don’t ye know!)

    10. The Muffin Man’s Song ~ There are so many fascinating street rhymes in London. The chorus is the old waterman’s fare table to row people across the Thames.

    11. David Lowston ~ Traditional ~ A compelling song from New Zealand.

    12. Bold Captain Webb ~ Music Hall ~ A broadside ballad celebrating a record breaking achievement!

    13. Alfie ~ Monologue ~ A gentle monologue, again from my pen. A familiar story; indeed, only the other day there was a report in the local paper of some-one having a similar misfortune in a church yard!

    14. Sing Song Kitty ~ Traditional ~ This song was a great favourite of Mum’s and she taught it to me.

    15. Lord Franklin ~ Traditional ~ The story of Lord Franklin and his efforts to find the North West Passage are well documented. Another traditional song from the frozen wastes.

    16. Jumbo Stevens ~ When I unearthed this story while researching in the Croydon Local History Library, I knew it just had to be made into a song! The event actually happened! Sometimes fact can be stranger than fiction!

    17. Walking to the Waddon ~ Croydon Folksong Club once met at the Waddon Hotel. Rita and I made up the words to this on a wet walk down to the Waddon Hotel one wet Wednesday. The tune is traditional and is ideal for sloshing down city streets to!

It was a good evening as I recall.....interestingly I met up with a member of that audience a few weeks ago. We were already acquaintances but they hadn't made the connection with Chelmsford until I sang a particular song. At the end of the song he said, "I know who you are now!" Wonderful.

Well remembered! The Thetford gig was connected to their Thomas Paine 200 festival, and I hear that Lewes is holding a festival as well. It was a shame for those people who had organised outside events, but we were indoors sharing some of the music we play on Wayland Community Radio's folk programme. I always enjoy singing to a non-folkie audience.

Thetford seemed to like us.......

While I was at Thetford, I had one of those experiences that makes what we do so worthwhile. There were great musicians to share the experience with and the 'stage' was very reminiscent of the rails of a ship and so a sea song or two seemed appropriate. After I had finishd my part of the concert a member if the audience came up to me and thanked me for singing a particular song. She used to sing it with her father when they were out sailing and she hadn't heard it for far too many years. My singing the song had made her day, and she had made mine. The magic of folk music!

Best wishes,
