Thread Name: Nadia Cattouse - whatever happened to?
Subject: RE: NADIA CATTOUSE - whatever happened to?
Seems we still can't decide whether Nadia Cattouse is sill alive (and does anyone know whether her surname rhymes with "house" or "ooze"? There also seems some uncertainty about whether Cyril Tawney or Matt McGinn wrote "There are no lights on our Christmas tree". Matt McGinn is I think dead, and Cyril's memory may not be that reliable, as according to the sleeve notes on "In Port" (1963; his 1st album, if I remember correctly)he forgot that he had written one of the songs on this album ("In the Sidings") but fortunately Louis Killen learned the song and taught it to Tawney again!

Perhaps Murray McLeod could contact Paddie Bell again who could then get Nadia to confirm her continued existence!
