OH NO!!!!!! We can't get channel 5 yet. Nor 4, we get S4C. I am really disappointed. I remember seeing him and Martin Carthy in Manchester in the dim and distant past. Their arrangement of Byker Hill haunts me still!!!!! That's where I heard Long Lankin and loads of other stuff for the first time. Been hooked ever since!!! Hwyl, Bron.

Thanks Ian. I can't get Channel 5 either.

Did you know that Joan Baez is on the Songwriter's Circle BBC TWO Friday?

It's on at 11.25 pm for viewers in England, and (possibly) Wales & NI - 12.25 for viewers in Scotland - hey, I've got a Radio Times and I'm not afraid to use it - though other listings magazines are available of course....!!

I'm green with envy. He's one of my all time favourite musicians.

To LLANFAIR (and others . . )

Don't forget that the Byker Hill recording has been re-released on CD (by Topic). Best thing Carthy's ever recorded, IMO. AND I had to replace my CD copy when my son took it off to University with him.

There's a SwarbAid benefit concert at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham (England!), this Friday I think. It was pretty much sold out except for the the top circle (what we call the "roof" where I come from!), but they may have some last-minute cancellations.

I've only just seen this thread, but I did happen to switch on and see most of the short feature on Swarb, the other day. They talked about his illness and The Telegraph publishing his obitury a wee bit early. It's good to see he's still on the ball.
