Thread Name: Mike Harding's Beautiful Music
Subject: RE: Mike Harding's Beautiful Music
It's true, he is a very talented songwriter. He has written some good plays. He has sang lots of traditional songs and played tunes on a number of instruments better than most. He is a fantastic enthusiast and promoter of folk lore, song and music. He is extremely funny.

He was a great President and advocate of the Ramblers Association. His books on walking, containing his own photographs, are very good.

He is a genuine and all round nice bloke. People who don't like some of the music he plays in an hour once a week have every right to complain about his choices but please don't missjudge and undervalue him.
