As one of many people standing in line with a book to be signed at the 1998 chantey sing, I assumed he would just scribble his name in the front. Instead, he took the time to find out my name and write a personal message. I'm really grateful to have been there, and for all his years of work collecting songs I would never have heard otherwise.
