breezy Obit: Geoff Wood, Leeds (1924-2013) (34) RE: Obit: Geoff Wood, Leeds (1924-2013) 27 Dec 13


I'll refresh by adding that from 64 till 67 I would be late back to my college on account of having visited the Grove, was it a wednesday evening ?
I got to hear Stefan Sobell all the time, dropped D on Black Velvet Band , Johnny Cope, Golden Vanity and Lowlands? were often performed
Due to those many late nights I had to climb in up the drainpipe and one night got caught.

I never made myself known to anyone being somewhat reserved and shy and new to the folk world.

A pint was 1/10d, petrol 4/10d a gallon

I think I've heard a story from Mart C but I dare not divulge it here.
I am grateful to hear that Lish Young buy a Broom was collected by Geoff I've been accompanying Nigel Chapman from Rumford for a while now, so in that way he connected to me

It was at the Grove I first heard Cyril Tawney and when I was an organiser in St Albans some 10 years ago I booked Cyril and he was as good as ever with a 45 minute encore
I know Kitty Vernon, and will ask he to revive The Horn of the Hunter as I havent heard it in years.

To conclude this 'refresher'I have to say people such as Geoff are the back-bone of our music having devoted all those years, nay their lives, to the Grove.

Thank you for allowing me a moment to salute this fantastic legendary man , I do wish I had been more forthcoming back then .

Have a great wake for Geoff
