Have a guess at naming this major British folk artist from the performers that he lists has his influences on his MySpace page.
I've knocked off three of the listed influences as I thought that it would make it too easy

"Lonnie Donegan, Johnny Duncan, The Weavers, Bert Jansch"

I'd say that it was probably Dick Gaughan, although that's just a stab in the dark , of course. Is it "Gorn " , by the way ?? I am "Vaughan " ( vorn) , you see ??
