Thread Name: Obit: Geoff Wood, Leeds (1924-2013)
Subject: RE: Obit: Geoff Wood, Leeds
I never met Geoff, which I greatly regret, as he did me a great favour when I was a teenager - I wrote to him after Maddy Prior gave me his address in about 1968 as her source for the Horn of the Hunter, and he very kindly sent me a tape full of field (perhaps more accurately pub) recordings of that and other hunting songs. I am sorry that the British folk scene has lost another treasure.
