Thread Name: Obit: Cyril Tawney-RIP (21 April 2005)
Subject: RE: Obit: Cyril Tawney-RIP (21 April 2005)
Cyril Tawney made an impact in every obscure corner of the world: his songs made it to "Rise up Singing" afterall ...

I have run into modern RN types (in the middle of landlocked Macedonia/FYROM no less) who immediately related to the titles of Cyril's works -- maybe a West Country connection -- ("Five Foot Flirt", "Diesel and Shale", "Oggy Man") but did not know of Cyril the man or of folk music. His songs resonate and tonight they'll reverberate at a typically modern German venue (O'Reilly's) in Stuttgart ...

Meanwhile, the words of The Boarding Party come to mind, "When my time is over, haul away to heaven, God be by my side ..."
