Subject: Pete Betts (UK) in hospital
From: nutty
Date: 21 Sep 15 - 03:51 PM

Just read on Facebook that Pete Betts has had a severe stroke. Folkies will knpw Pete as Vin Garbutts best buddy and also the composer of "They Don't Write Them like that Anymore". This apparently happened yesterday so it's too soon to know what the outcome will be but I'll keep posting whenever I hear more news.

I for one will miss him, he was a regular to a local session
here on Teesside, was only playing and talking with him last week.

The world will be a drearier place without him, with his lighthearted but straight to the point banter!!
Personally I think he was definitely underrated as a singer/songwriter,
local clubs rarely gave him a guest spot, here is an interesting acticle you will find amusing....

R. I. P. BETSY. maeve thankyou for your post, may i point out that PETE latterly posted under the name BETSY.
I last saw him at Saltburn Festival in August, he was on good form, I will miss him. He gave me a right bollocking for posting r.i.p. ron angel, and not using capitals.
he was a fine songwriter and a great character. R.I,P.

So sad, so very, very sad, Pete has gone way before his time.

So many years with so many memories of so many mutual insults giving rise to so many laughs and leaving us with so many stories that we continue to recall so many times - but so cruel that we had no opportunity so say our last goodbye.

Sincere condolences to Faith, Jo and Chris - Pete was a rare gem never to be forgotten. Tom Wilson & The Family

I have known Pete since I came onto the folk scene, 30yrs ago, but only became good friends the last 3yrs of his life.
I will dearly miss Pete, he was a regular at the weekly session we hold at the Top House, Marske.
He would regularly txt me, to see if I was going, and I to him. For I knew if Pete was going, it was gunna be a great night, and it always was!
The world has now become a drearier place.
Personally I think he was underrated as a singer/songwriter, doing very few guest spots at local clubs.
What a lot of people did'nt realise, was how adept he was with the guitar, he had a natural ability to interpret chord progression, with accompaniment, be it reels/jigs/polkas or a slow air.
l was privaleged to play with him, on the few gigs we did together.

RIP Pete, until we meet again, Len
