Oh, no! What a lovely man Cyril was! And he was such a talented, yet modest, composer. At least there are so many fine songs with which we can remember him!
The last time I saw him we had a friendly chat while he was unwinding after he had performed at Lancaster Maritime Festival. He was sitting on the stairs (there was no green room and all the chairs in the bar were occupied!) I said that I really enjoyed singing The Grey Funnel Line and he said that he had originally hoped to be able to accompany himself with an English concertina when singing it but he gave up learning the instrument. It is such a moving song anyway, so singing it now will bring extra tears to my eyes ...
Well at least he is now at rest ...

He was there in Leeds when I first became interested in the songs in 1964-5, at the Grove.
In October 2003, after, fervent negotiations he played our club in St Albans.
He arrived at the station at 3.00, checked into his hotel room , asked where the Cross keys was, and was rthere by 4.00
At 8.00pm He received a rapturous ovation as he walked! into the club room in Samuel Ryders old house.
At 11.00 he announced his closing song.
At midnight he concluded his encores
At 2.00 we retired from the bar to bed.
Now he has retired, thank you for the legacy.
Our thoughts are now with Rosemary

I suppose it's true, but perhaps we shouldn't start an obituary thread until we get certain information. There's no news on his Website or on the BBC Website. We can also change the title of this thread, if and when it's appropriate. Perhaps that would be better than starting a new thread.

I had heard his name for years, and I'm so glad I was able to talk with him briefly and to hear him perform several times at Whitby Fowk Week a couple of years ago. His concert I liked best was the one he put on for the children and families. He had a mischievous twinkle in his eye, and the concert was lots of fun. He was a gracious man and a wonderful performer.

Hey, and he even had some nice things to say about Mudcat.

Sad news. There is a notice on Musical Traditions News page which states that Cyril passed away on 21 April - they also have no further information as yet.

Sadly I never got to see him perform live as far as I can recall, but I certainly used to sing a number of his songs in earlier years, and he has left an enduring legacy behind him.

Dear Friend(s) and Colleagues


       I am very sorry to have to tell you that Cyril has lost his long
and courageous battle with illness. He died peacefully, whilst sleeping, on
Thursday (21st April), having been in hospital for 9 months. The funeral
will be on Tuesday 3rd May at Heavitree Parish Church, Exeter at 11am.
Details will be on his website as soon as possible: www.cyriltawney.co.uk


Your messages of love and support have been a great help to both of us
through this very difficult time, and you have my wholehearted thanks.

Derek is right - I have not yet had time to work on the website - was about to contact Mudcat when someone told me the news was out already. Funeral 3rd May 11 am at Heavitree Parish Church, Exeter.

I wish I could put real names and faces to all of you - I am glad that Cyril is at peace now, he would have had no quality of life had he lingered. I think he simply got tired and gave up.

I'm OK and am keeping busy, with masses of support from friends locally and worldwide

Thank you all so much

I am very sad to hear that. Sincere condolences to Cyril's family.

Cyril was indeed the first live folk artist I saw back in the late 60's at the Woodman Folkclub at Kingswinford near Dudley. I bought his LP and still wished I had it. One song from that LP that I still know almost by heart is "Rose in June" and is still a firm favourite of mine.

I had dreams of getting Cyril up to Market Rasen, but alas that can no longer be.

RIP Cyril

A Great Loss, a man that genuinely expressed, with great skill what it is and was like to be a sailor and to serve at sea, He wrote memorable songs with skill and humour that have been taken for traditional in many places, yet they have added to, and enhanced the Tradition at the same time with their fresness and style.
Truly a sad day,

Very sorry to hear this news, and very grateful to have lived at the same time as Cyril and to have had the chance to hear him, and sing with him, so often.
   Many people connected with the English folk revival have written songs, some good, some bad, some indifferent, and it's not always given to mortal man to decide which is which. But I'll stick my neck out(and end up by agreeing with everybody else) and say Cyril was the boy, head and shoulders above all others. He wrote a considerable number of superlative songs, his output is unsurpassed. We all have favourites, but he wrote so many we'ld probably all have great difficulty in deciding which one is our extra-special favourite, he was just too good..
    A unique and wonderful songwriter; and a great singer of traditional songs, as well as his own.
    My thoughts are with Rosemary.

His handful of songs is a greater legacy, to me, than all the paper in a presidential library or the trust funds of a Rothschild. I have always thought of him as a mench, a real but quiet hero, because of the undertones of courage in his songs. I am sorry he is gone, and hope he finds exhilaration in his new state.

A great loss to us all. I first went to see Cyril Tawney at Chester a few years ago because I remembered he had been a favourite of my Dad in the sixties. I didn't know much about him then, but he did a CT in depth session where he talked about the songs he sang . His warmth, umanity and decency shone through.

Since then I have been to a lot of festivals and almost every good song about life at sea I enquired about turned out to be one of his.

There does not seem to me any doubt that Cril will always be with us.

I will always remember his kindness to Barbara (Dickson) and myself when we sang for the first time together at Dunfermline Howff in 1964. He was the guest artist that night and gave us young tearaways very gentle and sound advice on style and repertoire - advice that has stayed with me ever since. Judging by Barbara's new CD it stayed with her as well!

Everything else has been said very eloquently by others.
