Thread Name: Folk Singers Who Are Still Alive
Subject: Folk Singers Who Are Still Alive
I'm trying to come up with a list of folk singers who are still alive - not just the well known ones either, but the truly great voices of the clubs sessions & singarounds who make this music what it is, and who, in an ideal world, would be national treasures. Here's a few of my favourites off the top of my head:

Dave Peters (Preston)
Ian McCulloch (Durham)
Esme Ryder (Northumberland)
Ross Campbell (Fleetwood)
John Jocys (Cheshire)
Tom Walsh (Preston)
Piers Cawley (Doncaster)
Clive Powell (Edinburgh)
Robin Dale (Hartlepool)

Let's have few more!
