Thread Name: Greetings to Roy Harris
Subject: RE: Greetings to Roy Harris
Hi Cath, I knew Roy in the 60s when he sang at Shotley Bridge Folk club we traveled around a lot together and stayed at each others homes in those days. Roy got me a lot of bookings when I started singing pro and we kept in touch for years. When my daughter went to college in Nottingham she stayed for a few weeks with Roy and Elaine who looked after her very well for me, It was good to know she could call on them if she needed help. I have always considered Roy one of the best and most professional singers the UK has ever produced and am proud to number him among my friends. I remember well one night after playing the Topic Folk Club Bradford we were traveling to Roy's home in the worst fog I have ever known I was driving that night and Roy spent the whole journey hanging out of the passenger window keeping me on the road, We got to his place safely after hours of driving and very tired. Please give him my best regards Cheers Bill and Lorna Sables
