Steve, I'm really shocked, I had no idea Julie was ill. As you know I only met her at the Stoney Stratford Mudcat Meet 2-3 years ago and she seemed a very lovely person, despite being sat next to me, she didn't flinch even when I "sang".
My sincere condolences to her family and friends.

I moved up to Staffordshire 16 months ago so I didn't know that she had been ill. A great loss.

I never knew Julie, and it would be churlish to argue about PEL's and 'Happy Birthday'

I think that her last post here, talking about 'Arthur McBride' says it all:

"I too love this song and Paul Brady's version of it. I discovered it when a friend put it on a cassette tape compilation of his favourite folk music for me. I played it in the car until the tape wore out! No matter how many times I listened it still sounded fresh. Enjoyed singing it too."

Rest in peace, Julie

From: Steve Parkes
Date: 30 Apr 04 - 04:15 AM

I was always trying to persuade Julie to publish her songs here, but she was a bit shy, somehow. She made a CD with Steve Jacobs of five of her songs, as well as the one of her PEL song. I think she wouldn't mind having them published now (a separate thread, maybe?). I can't do anything until I get home, as I don't have the words here at work.

Meanwhile, I've been asked for "Potcheen & Potatoes" by someone who's leaving for a folk camp at 2.30 (British time); can anyone oblige quickly?


Thanks to everyone for all the warmth and love. I'm still trying to put my own thoughts in order, but along all her colleagues and friends here and at Bedford FC, we are shocked and saddened.

Potcheen and Potatoes – Julie Berrill

Some folk never find it, and most are still looking,
Some find it often, but they're very few.
But now that I've found it my searching is over
Yes now I've found true love and I've found it with you.

Oh you tell me we'll live on potcheen and potatoes
And we'll have a cottage on Galway's fair shore
Well I know that you're crazy I know that you're dreaming
But while I'm in your arms I believe every word

Well I thought I'd known love and I thought I'd known lovers
But nothing had ever prepared me for this.
The sound of your voice and the way that you hold me,
The look in your eyes and the love in your kiss.

CHORUS

But we can't go out courting, we can't go out walking
And no one must ever see us on our own
But our precious love although it's a dear one
Must stay as a secret and we can never be known

CHORUS

Lead Break

Well I know that you love me I know you're sincere
And to love you a lifetime will now be my fate.
But you have a wife and you've two little children,
It's sad but it's true that I found you too late.

CHORUS x2

Just typed this in, a bit quickly but I think it's right
I have the CD and can copy if anyone would like it PM me.

I didn't know Julie B but while living in Northamptonshire in the 70s I may have known some members of her family. Was she related to a Policeman, probably retired now, Called Bob Berrill, or a Northampton motorcycle dealer (probably also retired!) called Mick Berrill?

The mention of Beachampton brought back some lovely memories for me when some 15 years ago I helped a lady from Perth, Australia, find her relatives who came from Beachampton some 200+ years ago - she was so impressed that I had taken the trouble to reply to a letter she had written in a Buckinghamshire newspaper asking for help, and I was the only person to respond, that she hopped on a plane and came over. We visited the village together, had a tiptoe around the tombstones, collecting lots of her family names, then we had lunch in the Bell and met Beachampton's oldest resident (I forget his name now but there was a First World War photograph of him with his horse, which hangs in the pub) anyway this old gentleman told us that he had once bought some land from the lady's great-grandfather and built a house. It kind of brought the family "to life" for her.

After lunch we went into Winslow to a Solicitor's office (he had at one time been Buckingham's Coroner) and he had managed to gather together a huge pile of Parish Registers for us to look at. It was a great success....!

I think there may be some confusion about where to go after the service. Some of us had understood that folkies were going to go on to The Cock in Stony Stratford - as given at in the announcement at the bottom of Pete Robert's website of Milton Keynes sessions:- www.session.musician.org.uk.
