Flash Company, that was a song percy webb and also cyril poacher used to sing.
who is JT,is this a popular music singer?
IMO it is always interesting to hear the source singers singing the songs,Iwould be surprised if Norma Waterson hasnt listened to source singers such as percy webb, singing Flash Company.Dick Miles

Dick, JT is June Tabor.
I can assure you Norma was great friends with many of the old source singers, particularly Walter Pardon. Many of the family's songs were obtained directly from the source singers themselves.

well i never heard her[JT] sing Flash Company, But she[JT] used to be very good singing the song The Band played Waltzing Matilda.
In my opinion[JT] can on occasions be superb.

If it's updated information you want, this interview is pretty good.

http://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/what-s-on/music/a-special-gift-for-music-1-7017468

I thought of recommending this interview on another, more recent thread. But that thread is called Norma Waterson Unwell, and it would make people panic to see the thread-name again. So leave that thread be, and add to this one.

I've never seen Norma live, only her husband Martin Carthy.

If I can provide the blicky link,
the same newspaper more recently published
an in-depth interview with Eliza Carthy.

Reading this account was the first time that I heard the information:
that "The Moral of the Elephant,"
recorded with Martin Carthy and Eliza Carthy -- father and daughter -- alone together,
was the compromise decided upon when
the original plan fell through:
previously Norma Waterson was to reunite with husband and daughter
for tne next album together,
and when Norma's health did not permit at the time,
the other two simply had to record without her.
That's news to me. Here's the story, I hope.

Eliza Carthy, 28 May 2017

My apologies if this sounds intrusive,
I know many of you are protective of Norma Waterson
(and who better to be protective of!).

I understand that the scheduled 2019 Normafest in Whitby
was cancelled because Norma Waterson
had been scheduled for an operation to do with her heart.

of course I join those who wish Herself better and well,
and I hope there will be, in the future,
Normafests again, with Norma Waterson. Thanks.

Eliza Carthy, on her own webpages, reports that the recent lockdown
provided the long-postponed opportunity
for Norma Waterson to have what Eliza calls
"the long-awaited heart operation."

Eliza's report is dated 18 July, 2020 and says that
Norma Waterson is recovering at home,
"so she's still tucked up while
me and Dad and the kids just orbit around her, like the sun.
A sleepy, sometimes grumpy sun but a sun nonetheless!"

Thanks for sharing the update, keberoxu. V. glad to hear Norma Waterson is recovering well from the op. I've never met her, but recordings of her + family singing have been with me since childhood.
