Thread Name: Obit: Geoff Wood, Leeds (1924-2013)
Subject: RE: Obit: Geoff Wood, Leeds
Sorry to hear the sad news.
I was introduced to Geoff as "Professor" Geoff Woods which was a sort of honary title ashe knew much more about Folk Music than the people who introduced me to him which were Bob Spray and his missus, along Jill and Jules Pidd and others in the Leeds Adelphi Folk club days. He was delighful ,courteous and entertaining company and I'm still singing today a song which he gave me on that day , a song which he collected - around 1948 I think he said - Lish Young Buy a Broom.
God bless you Professor Geoff .
