Harmonium Hero Obit: Stan Ambrose (Merseyside) (1930-2016) (17) RE: Stan Ambrose RIP 12 Jul 16


Very sad to hear this. Stan was, as everyone else will say, a lovely person, and a pillar of the Merseyside folk scene. A kindly, mild-mannered and generous man.(Back in the early '70s, he was one of the few peoplw to champion The Wakes, often slipping one of his recordings of us into his 'Folk Scene' programme on Radio Merseyside). As the Liverpool Echo report linked above says, he presented The Folk Scene for 49 years, and was active around the local clubs, often turning up and singing 'I live in Trafalgar Square' or 'Polly Perkins'. He was a member of the Bothy Trio, (with the late Tony Molyneux (Wilson), and the late Dave Boardman), who were resident in the early days at the Bothy Folk Club in Southport. No doubt Clive Pownceby will say more on this. Many people hereabouts have reason to be grateful to him, and he will be sorely missed. John Kelly.
