Subject: RE: Info: Charlie Bate (Cornish singer)(1919-1977)
I knew all 3 of the above mentioned gents. Charlie was indeed a great player of the accordian and I remember well his journey to little brown jug. I think that since Mervyn was such a loose cannon that sometimes Charlie wasn't welcomed in case he brought Mervyn with him. But personally I spent many happy hours in their company thanks to my connection to the Jolly Porter folk club in Exeter.
