I am feeling rather like Garth Cartwright, the journalist I have chosen to be the one who should have been there. The innocuous title of Robert and friends hides the secret or maybe not so secret ,only hidden, talents of The Village Voices, Val Raw , Margaret Pawson,The Shufflers, Carl Sutcliffe, Robert Hall and of course Frank Wardle. Of course I have heard items before from these musicians, and even know one or two of them quite well, but as an ensemble or Concert Party they worked very well together to give me a good laugh, joy in listening , and encouragement to widely publicise the Filey Folk Festival
I have put the wonderful WR folk song of the Lofthouse Miners on youtube , but to keep you all going heres Robert
Bring Back The Good Old Days. Robert would get a job !
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.
