I remember thinking at the time that if you're seeking the old songs, it's not always the obvious places you should look. Who'd have thought that a rather posh-sounding Englishman would be such a repository? Through an accident of birth and upbringing John sounded aristocratic, but you couldn't have met a more knowledgeable and straightforward countryman who found it easy to communicate with country folk and travelling people. His Irish neighbours absolutely adored him and he was always up for the craic. While we were over there, parties with musicians lasted well into the small hours and John would always give us a song or tune or two with the melodeon. Happy days indeed.
