Subject: RE: Info: Charlie Bate (Cornish singer)(1919-1977)
Charlie was a much loved Cornish singer whom I first met at the First Cornwall Festival in 1973.For some reason,Charlie was out of favour with the organisers at that time and they refused to book him for the festival in spite of the fact that he was one of Cornwall's best loved.Brenda Wooton,who was booked wouldn't have this and she insisted on bringing him with her and I remember there was much tension and tears.
Charlie often teamed up to work with Bob Cann.
