Thread Name: Don't tell Harry
Subject: The Trouble with Harry
Well we celebrated Harry's 50th last Sunday at the Open Door in Failsworth, and what a grand occasion it was with Mark Dowding as the surprise guest and lots of other friends turning up to sing and recite for the 'lad' who is proving to be one of the most interesting and creative songwriters around.
He uses traditional material in a powerful way so that the songs assimilate well with well known songs; in fact when I first heard him sing the Black Gang I thought it was a song I'd heard lots of times before!
Do listen to his CD Decked Out with Pride
