Thread Name: Nic Jones to tour again?
Subject: RE: Nic Jones to tour again?
I remember meeting Nic Jones a few times, in various venues, in East Anglia. Even then he was a legendary singer and guitarist and his fame was growing. I remember thinking what a nice, genuine person he was but assumed that if I ever bumped into him, in different company, he wouldn't know me from Adam - I was wrong!

In the early 70s I moved to Manchester and started getting acquainted with the local folk scene. One night I went to the old MSG club because Nic Jones was on. I will never forget that he came up to me and said hello - even remembered my name! To me that is the mark of a truly genuine person. I do so hope that one day I will have the privilege of hearing him sing again.
