Graham Pirt Keith Marsden (10) RE: Keith Marsden 28 Aug 99


Well, where do I start?

Keith's group Cockersdale is still performing and consists of Val Marsden, John O'Hagan and myself. The book that has been mentioned in the thread, "Picking Sooty Blackberries" is available from Fellside Records, 15 Banklands, Workington, Cumbria, UK. As earlier letters in the thread have pointed out we've been at Whitby Festival for the week where we put on our presentation of the book with slides and songs. We ran a workshop and created a choir of over 80 people to join us in the show.

After Keith's untimely death in 1991 we didn't sing for over a year. However we never stopped meeting on our rehearsal night and eventually we started singing again. Since that date we've produced a further two CDs, "Been Around For Years" and "Wide Open Skies".

If you want any further info about Keith or the group let me know.
