GUEST,surreysinger sans cookie Nic Jones BBC Radio 4 (10) RE: Nic Jones BBC Radio 4 06 Aug 13

Why saddened jhw? And why "rather that he'd left it all behind?" I've been to two of those performances. I never saw Nic perform in the earlier days, and, indeed, never thought I would see him live at all. The performance on the South Bank with Joe and Belinda O'Hooley was a very emotional thing ... and I have to admit to having had tears in my eyes (in common with most of those around me). And this was not just because Nic was on stage again, but because it was quite clear that he he still had "it" , and moreover was enjoying himself. By the time we got to the EFDSS gold medal award at Cecil Sharp House this was even more evident. I look forward to seeing the Nic Jones trio in action again somewhere ... and if the CD that I have heard about comes out I shall certainly be buying a copy. Not out of retrospective emotion, but because it will be worth hearing! And yes, the programme was good - I look forward to the TV documentary when it comes out later this year.
