Sadly, Stan Kelly-Bootle died on 16 April 2014. There is a piece on the Guardian website:
http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2014/apr/29/stan-bootle-obituary

And also pieces in the Liverpool Echo and a Liverpool-based website.

Sorry, I always make a mess of the blue clicky, so please, can someone do that for me?

Stan was a pioneer folk revivalist, being involved in the folk club at Cambridge University by 1950, even before MacColl had met Lloyd. he wrote the words of Liverpool Lullaby - as recorded by Cilla Black and others - and the song I Wish I was back in Liverpool. He was an early recording artist with Topic Records, a computer pioneer and a strong supporter of Liverpool FC (football club, not folk club!) He was last on stage singing at Bill Leader's EFDSS Gold Badge concert last Autumn.

How sad. A very clever and talented man. I think he posted on here once in regard to his "Liverpool Lullaby" but cannot find it. I did find a posting by him here which gives a great link between two of his main passions and a good insight into his sense of humour.

Condolences to his family and friends.

Cheers

Alas, there goes another of the early Revival greats. I knew him a bit at Cambridge, and better when I used to go the the club he organised and fronted for Bruce Dunnett at the Cranbourne in Gt Newport St. Fine singer. Delightful man. He will be much missed.

A lovely guy, and just about the most diverting and intellectually wide-ranging conversationalist ever. My little tribute is a blog devoted to a transcription of my first encounter with Stan. I've called it The Table Talk of Stan Kelly, and it can be accessed by clicking here -

Thanks,

Thanks for that link Noreen. I must have missed that LastWord programme.

Some of his own comments seem to have been removed from his yt Liverpool Lullaby because I remember him apologising for mixing up the verses -over enthusiastic "wetting of the baby's head" was blamed I think!

I met him briefly after I had performed at the Cambridge in Cambridge circus Soho. He was surprised that I knew of him when he introduced himself. He was generous in his encouragement and praise.
A moment I'll not forget.
