Thread Name: Jack Hudson - video clips
Subject: RE: Jack Hudson - video clips
Hi WLD. Remember me - the traddy with the harmonium at the Brown Cow a few months back? Hello again!.
Nice to see those clips of Jack Hudson. I haven't seen him for about fifteen years. I agree that he doesn't get the recognition he deserves. I saw Jack in folk clubs in the '70s, and got to know him when he used to do guest spots at McTavish's Kitchens in Fort William. I was doing the resident spot with a duo, and as well as seing Jack on stage, used to hear him afterwards at the infamous parties in the proprietors' flat. (If you know Jack personally, you could ask him about those, and say hello for me while you're about it). I never thought of him as 'Country', but as a singer of contemporary songs. And until I read your comments, I hadn't heard him described as 'Country'. Shame on the Beeb!-and the folk clubs!
My CD is out by the way. John Kelly.
