I have heard today of the passing of Trevor Lister of Middlesbrough
I have no details and I hope someone can add more information to this thread.
I first met Trevor when he ran the folk club at Osmotherly and after that we met at intervals for the next 20 years. His great claim to fame was he published the Folk Roundabout Magazine which was the last word on folk events in the area. Somewhere in there he found time to Run a festival at Natures World Middlesbrough and later he was still singing in local clubs.
When he meets with the Heavenly Choir lets hope they have a good folk repertoire

I too only heard today of Trevor's passing.
He died of cancer last Thursday after a brief spell in James Cook Hospital, only a few months short of his 85th birthday.
Trevor was indeed a fine fellow and a genuine old-school folk scene stalwart. He had a wry - and sometimes quite wicked - sense of humour that was balanced by a true compassion. I had the privilege of working closely with Trevor for many years, both on Folk Roundabout magazine and in organising the Nature's World festival, and often travelled with him to Stockton Folk Club in the club's "Ron Angel years". Although he "retired" from both activities around five years ago, he maintained a lively interest in the folk music scene right up to the end; latterly he sang mostly at the Cutty Wren at Redcar. His distinctive presence will be much missed.
RIP Trev. Keep banging on yer bodhran and keep the Salvation Band going up there!

Very sad to hear this- I knew he had been ill, but still a shock.
Well remembered for his Nature's World festival in 'Boro' and also met him a few times at the Sun in Stockton.
A gentle man with a dry sense of humour- I was always glad to see him- he knew where I was coming from in my particular version of 'folk' and I'm always grateful for that... rest in peace, old pal

A true gentleman who we had the pleasure of knowing through the Saltburn Folk Festival. A very sad loss. Our condolences and best wishes to his family and many friends

I am surprised this is not a longer thread. Folk Club organisers, folk magazine editors and festival organisers are few and far between. My deepest sympathy to his friends and family.

RIP

I first met Trevor at whitby in 1976, a gentleman and genuinely pleasant man, who ran folk roundabout for many years, a stalwart of the teeside and yorkshire folk scene

Trevor was thoroughly good hearted. Good to hear at his send-off at Kirkleatham how very able he was time and again in different careers he took on, all beyond what we know of him in Folk circles. RIP

'I first met Trevor when he ran the folk club at Osmotherly'
Anyone remember what that pub on the corner was called? Across the road was the Pied Piper; both pubs have been houses a long time.
