I just heard the sad news and I am shattered. Vin was a beacon of brilliant artistry; throughout all these years, he fired my imagination and inspired me. I booked Vin at Llantrisant Folk Club on a number of occasions; the last time Olly and I saw him was at the Tredegar House Folk Festival Sunday afternoon concert last year, when he greeted us like old friends. He had a special view on the quality of life, and his philosophy rubbed off on everyone. Sincere condolences to Pat and his family, who have organised Vin's funeral in Middlesbrough Cathedral on Friday at 2pm - let's hope it's a full house for Vin's final gig...
