Big Al Whittle Colin Irwin on Peter Bellamy (51* d) RE: Colin Irwin on Peter Bellamy 27 Mar 21


', he had his own self-belief undermined. But I'll leave that there.'

Yes I'd agree. I was never a professional folksinger. I worked the pubs, working men's clubs. OAP's clubs...and got such money as   i could out of being a one hit wonder, guitar lessons. A jobbing muso ...should we say.

But I liked the company of folkies. I can remember in particular the dismay amongst some folkies when Peter got some work stateside (presumably from the nice stuff Karl was writing about him). There was a feeling thatthe US wouldn't want any more English singers.

like I say my in laws went to see him and couldn't understand his gig at all. They were just ordinary working class folks who had got into folk clubsthrough me. i think they left in the interval - I can imagine a few experiences like thiswould affect you confidence. I know when I got paid off in WMC's, it dented my pride and confidence.
