So sorry to hear this news.

I first heard "The Roman Gladiator" sung by Dave at the 2004 Euro-gathering in Barrow – a fun song sung with great gusto. Inspired by this performance, I've now included it in a musical sketch for Cubs and Brownies. When they perform it on stage, I'll be thinking of Dave.

I am grateful to Linda and Dave for sharing his last journey with us, here, at the Mudcat. I didn't know him, but it was obvious, by all accounts, he was held in high esteem and with great affection by those who knew him and that he was a remarkable singer, friend, and had a great sense of humour, too. It is to our great benefit, he was also a Mudcatter.

My deepest sympathy to Linda, family and all who knew him.

Didn't know him, never met, never corresponded, but still feel saddened at the loss of a regular and recognisable "name" here on Mudcat.
The community that is Mudcat creates that sense of belonging and camaraderie with complete strangers and genuine sadness at the loss of one of ours.
My sympathies to his family.

Like me, Dave suffered a stroke. I saw him at Miskin this year and met Lynda - I had lost use of my left hand and Dave had lost use of his right, and we joked that together, we could form a duo - both playing guitar!

What a lovely, sincere, booming-voiced man, boosted by his love of music. If ever you should need us, Lynda, just keep in touch.

I, too, have been dreading the appearance of this subject line.

I kept meaning to go to see him, but wimped out because, believe it or not, I couldn't think what I would say when I got there. Simon (Harlowpoet) made it, and he hasn't even got his own transport. The last time I spoke to him was on the 'phone from a Black Lion session just after he had his stroke. Another regret to add to my collection.

We will all miss him, his voice and his humour. Go in peace, old friend - the world is a poorer place for your passing.

Condolences to Linda and his family.

Oh dear I was so afraid that the end was near from what I'd heard, I was so worried I phoned him yesterday from the US but could only speak to Peter as Dave was being given antibiotics at the time. At least he knew I'd phoned and that makes me feel easier, I had planned to visit on my way back home from the US guess I'm going to be too late even for the wake, sing him a song from me.
Bon voyage Dave, I'm glad Linda got back in time to be with you, love too to Peter who went through it all with him.

I'm sorry he's gone, Linda. They make up legends about larger-than-life people like Dave, and I'm glad I got to meet him -and you- that summer night in London in 2002. He was funny, intelligent, a great musician, and just a good guy.

The night we sang together, there was a drunk who kept coming up to us, requesting songs and making a nuisance of himself. The drunk requested Beatles songs, and Dave sang this parody of "Yesterday." The dramatic moment of the evening was when the drunk wanted to try out Dave's guitar - and Dave let him do it, and then the drunk dropped it. Dave should have killed the guy, but he was very gracious about it. I think that showed his mettle.

And I really had a good time that evening.

May you treasure his memory, Linda.

Here's Avril's first post: Hello everyone, I've just joined Mudcat, Let me introduce myself.
I'm Avril Betts and I live in South East London. I started singing folk songs almost two years ago, although I've sung with a church choir since I was nine. I also sing regularly at various Karioci evenings. I sing most of my songs without accompaniment, although I've started using a bodran with some of them recently, and at some sessions various guitarists accompany me.

My songs always seem to go down well with the audience, but I keep getting told by club organisers that they can't fit me on the list or that I've got there too late. I often notice that a lot of the time, other singers, who are usually friends of the organiser, get there much later than me and still get a chance to sing. Is there a sort of mafia that runs in folk clubs and if so, how do you join? One of the clubs which I go to regularly has "featured spots" where one of the regular singers gets a chance to do a mini-booking, but every time I ask if I can do one, I get told that they might think about it in the future. How long do you have to be singing before you get accepted ?


And from there on it spiralled on into hilarity, as helpful Mudcatters rushed in to the rescue...
