Seaking Singer South Shields Marine & Tech Coll (11) RE: Singer South Shields Marine & Tech Coll 10 Sep 08


I was also at SSMAT at that time (Shell eng intake 73, then tickets) and was on the Martec committee for a while when we started the folk nights - '77 ish ?? . I still have a recording of Jim Sharpe, probably the singer you are referring to singing Band played Waltzing Matilda. There was a recent thread on here about Jim coincidentally.

There was a cadet in our intake called Paddy O'Shaugnassy (sp?) who used to do 'Soldier' regularly in the Martec, probably not who you are referring to but may ring bells.

Only other person i can think of was Ed Pickford but I can't remember him playing the songs you mention.
