GUEST- You'll need a name to post on Mudcat. Welcome!

I see it listed as part of a compilation                              Here

"Celebration [sound recording] : Port Fairy Folk Festival music.[1996]* Port Fairy Folk Festival.
Charlestown, N.S.W. : Sandstock Music, [1996].
The maritime / John Beavis and Di McNicol
Sandstock Music: SSM 052CD."
      
I found lyrics to a different John Beavis song over here:
Danny Spooner website

That's the best I can do while half asleep.

John Beavis dropped out of sight many years ago - I think he moved into the Gospel field. But he left a legacy of a working songwriter who always had his pen & notebook with him to record a good phrase or riff as they occurred to him.

I'll see if the infamous singing accountant (Cliff Ellery) has a copy of the lyrics & if so I'll post them.

Cheers

Dave

John was one of the earlier exponents of DADGAD tuning in Oz. His father was known to have been involved in seafaring around Oz and the collection of such songs.   I too have lost track of John but might be able to track him down via his sister, with whom I did a Dip.Ed. many years ago.

Cheers, Rowan

John and my mother played music together many moons ago, and are still dear friends. I have a CD of his and would be more than happy to pass a copy forward 😊

I remember John from around the folk clubs in inner city Melbourne. He had a nice gentle way about him. I remember Di McNicol and her ex Jeff Hollings too. Wonder what happened to them as well?

Cheers,

Andrez
