Thread Name: Cyril Tawney - on the tideway (illness, 2005)
Subject: Cyril Tawney
Forgive me if this is already old news but I couldn't find any recent mention of it in a search.

This was posted in the BBC Folk message board from someone who had been to see Martins4:

"Incidentally Martin Simpson told us that Cyril Tawney is now very ill indeed, so ill that the hospital think that nothing more can be done for him. I'm so sad - with a bit of a naval background, and a naval husband, I've really grown to appreciate Cyril's songs in the last few years. Thoughts and prayers to him and Rosemary."

How terribly sad.
I moved this message here from another thread on the same topic.
