Lost count of the times I have seen Vin, from the 1970's at Farningham Couch House Club in Kent, Headcorn where he came as a guest artist many times, later at Kitty's club in Thorpe le Soken, The Walton on Naze Festival and last year at the Electric Palace in Harwich. Vin was always the perfect guest for a club or festival organiser,a wonderful performer, a brilliant weaver of stories, he could introduce a song with side splitting stories and then reduce you to tears with a heart breaking song.Then after a performance was happy to share stories well into the wee hours.There is no one like him, the world is a sadder place today but we should rejoice that we have wonderful memories and recordings to treasure. Sending all my love to Pat and her family xxxx
