Thread Name: Little known '60s Folk Singers
Subject: RE: Little known 1960's Folk Singers
In 1967 an unknown English singer arrived here on one of the visiting ships - he was a farrier and was in charge of some horses being brought out here. He had been busking in France with his friend and he taught us his friend's song - 'Streets of London'. We thought he was wonderful but he only stayed here for a short time.
His friend became well known but John Hayday remained just another obscure folkie. He later returned to NZ and gave up singing for awhile but I believe he's performing again in the Auckland area.
