Nadia Cattouse is still around, living in Wimbledon though spending much time in Scotland, firly recently re-recorded "Red and Green Christmas" with her son Michael Lindup on piano (BTW, he played keyboard, not bass, with Level 42).
I doubt it's been released..... pity, as she sounds stunning.
She occasionally writes me letters or phones me in Australia for long chats..... must be my turn to figure out the time difference.....

Yes that's the look of Nadia I remember. I worked with her on a BBC training programme in Kensington House about 1970. Steve Benbow, Brian Brocklehurst, a.n. other, and the wonderous voice of Nadia Cattouse (whose final syllable sounds like 'moose').
There was a Gershwin song, Port Mahon, and another, perhaps Brel, number.
She was wonderful!

OK, here they are:

KELSTON ROUND HILL

Three trees stand on Kelston Round Hill
Sunlight gleams o'er fields so green
In those fields two young children play
Boy and girl together seen
And the trees stand tall o'er the boy and girl
And welcome the coming of spring.

Three trees stand on Kelston Round Hill
Robed in leaves 'neath the summer sky
Lovers now, hand in hand, stroll together and
Kiss beneath the trees so high
And the trees stand tall, giving shade to all
Who rest from the summer sun.

Three trees stand on Kelston Round Hill
Richly bronzed in the autumn sun
He has gone far away, he'll come back they say
When the battle's lost or won
And the trees stand tall and the dead leaves fall
For the brave one's gone to war.

Three trees stand on Kelston Round Hill
Clad in winter's coat of snow
Far away he lies, can she realise
He is dead and she must go.
And the trees stand tall, and the wild winds call
In vain, for there's none to hear.

Three trees stand on Kelston Round Hill
Seasons come and seasons go
People live, people die, still the trees reply
Man was made for joy and woe.
And the trees stand tall, and the shadows fall
As the sun sets behind the hill.

Kitty

Hi everybody

I have just posted an update to Andy Roberts web site (andyrobertsmusic.com) and have included a recently obtained image of Nadia's album Earth Mother (On 'collaborations' page). There are also some other images from Complilation albums that featured Andy, some of which include tracks from Nadia, including 'All Around My Grandmother's Floor' which was of course written by Andy Roberts and Mike Evans.

I am maried to Trevor Cattouse who is the son of Roy Cattouse who is Nadia's brother. Would love to make contact with Nadia as we lost touch several years ago. Seems that she is still around. Her brother, Roy formaly British Honduras Middle weight boxing champion died back in 1997. My husband Trevor who was also a former professional boxer, was in touch with Nadia via his father, and used to visit her when she lived in Raynes Park.

Hi

Would love to get in touch with Nadia, so would be grateful for her address.
Several years ago a lady contacted us as she had a portrait of Nadia which her husband had painted. He had since died and she was clearing out her loft. We were to pass Nadia's details on but for some reason this did not happen. We live to regret the day as I'm sure the painting would have been lovely.

I had the pleasure of working with Nadia in the mid-sixties at the Prince Charles Theatre (now I believe a cinema). I was accompanist to Dominic Behan and Nadia in Dominic's satirical show 'Behan, Behan,Behan'. The show also featured Alex Cambell, Nigel Denve and The Haverim. My favourite Nadia song was Zombie Jamboree (I'd love to get hold of the lyrics). Nadia was real real pro and a very kind and caring person.

ZOMBIE JAMBOREE

It was a Zombie Jamboree
Took place in a New York cemetery
It was a Zombie Jamboree
Took place in a New York cemetery

Zombies from all parts of the Island
Some of them was a great Calypsonians
Although the season was Carnival
We get together in bacchanal
And they singing

Back to back, belly to belly
I don't give a damn, I done dead already
Oho back to back, belly to belly
At the Zombie Jamboree

One female Zombie wouldn't behave
See how she jumping out of the grave
In one hand a quarter rum
In the other hand she knocking Congo drum
Believe singer start to make his rhyme
The Zombies are racking their bones in thyme
One bystander had this to say
'T was a pleasure to see the Zombies break away

Back to back, belly to belly
I don't give a damn, I done dead already
Oho back to back, belly to belly
At the Zombie Jamboree

I goin' talk to Miss Brigit Bardot
And tell her miss Bardot take it slow
All the men think they're Casanova
When they see that she's bare foot all over
Even old men out into beaker
Find their hearts getting weaker and weaker
So I goin' to ask her for your sake and mine
At least to wear her ear rings part at the time

Back to back, belly to belly
I don't give a damn, I done dead already
Oho back to back, belly to belly
At the Zombie Jamboree

A lot of World leaders talkin' 'bout war
And I'm afraid they're going too far
So it's up to us you and me
To put an end to Catastrophe
We must appeal to their goodness of heart
And ask them to breech in and please do their part
Cause if this Atomic war begin
They won't even have a part to breech in

Back to back, belly to belly
I don't give a damn, I done dead already
Oho back to back, belly to belly
At the Zombie Jamboree

I am a Belizean-America sociologist living in Los Angeles who found this thread quite interesting. As a child I heard a lot about Nadia Cattouse from my mother and even heard her on the BBC. Because one of my areas of interest is Belizean migration her story (biography) has been of interest to me. There are many Newswpaper articles on her in Old Belizean (British Honduran) newspapers like the Clarion and Billboard. I know for instance that while her father Albert Cattouse was a supporter of the People's United Party (and a cabinet minister in the Price government) she was a supporter of the then National Indedendence Party (perhaps because her mother was a Fairweather) in the late 1960s. She also knew one British Honduran who migrated to Britain in 1919 by the name of Arthurs (article from the Billboard).I know a little bit more about her biography, but there is more to her story that I would like to know. Back in the early 1980s a Belizean in England Amos Ford published a book on the experience of British Honduran men serving in a forestry unit in Scotland during WWII. Regrettably, she is a historical figure (like Belizean Samuel Haynes and Ludwig Lightburn in the U.S.) but nothing substantive has been written about her and her family in Britain. She figures prominently in the history of Blacks in Britain and Belizeans in Britain. If there is anyone that can assist me in finding out more about her life in Britain I would greatly appreciate it. My e-mail is jstraughan@lmu.edu. You can also write me at J. Straughan, Dept. of Sociology, Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles CA. 90045-2659.

Hello:

I will ask Daphne Navarette who is a friend of Nadia Cattouse. When I lived in England in the 60s I met her. Her husband either played in the band with John Dankworth or managed John Dankworth. What is interesting is that my husband and I went to see Cleo Laine and her son was selling her CDs and I mentioned that I grew up in Belize and knew Nadia. He was quite pleased as he grew up knowing her as a family friend. I believe she attended the gala when Cleo Laine became a dame by the queen.    Will call Daphne and find out what she knows as the last time she visited London, I believe she stayed with Nadia.


I am also interested in writing about the men from Belize who went to England during WWII. My grandmother always talked of one man, Mr. Thurton from York Street who went and never came back. I met his daughter here in Los Angeles, and found out about another man, I believe his name is Parades. Know his daughter. That would be quite a story.

Never saw this thread before, but then Harry knows everyone and everything going on.   

Will get back to you.

I must be young on this thread. I have heard about Albert Cattouse -- only because of the building that once housed Radio Belize -- but I've never heard anything about Nadia Cattouse. I have heard a song Peel Neck John Crow and I know that there is a person named Sylvia Cattouse here in Belize -- she works/worked with the University of Belize.

This stuff is interesting.

I am interested in knowing more about Belizeans who have contributed in history. My most enlightening read this year was Baymen. The one by Forbes -- published by Stephen Fairweather.

This is fascinating, I just thought of her a day or two ago and was sent this thread, and all the memories are coming back- I already remembered Robin Hall and Jimmy McGregor and watching her in the 60s at the weekend. The only record I was able to find was a single on sale in the States, but the albums appear to be almost unobtainable, Earth Mother and especially the Nadia Cattouse one which is worth a lot of money. If anyone has any idea where I could get hold of one I'd be really happy. By the wasy, anyone remember the South African Jeremy Taylor? I just heard his EP 'Ag pleez Deddy' for the first time in 35 years after a similar search. Those were the days!

Zombie Jamboree as sung by Nadia has three verses , the first two are as posted Except for lasthalf of second is :-

The Lead singer starts to make his rhyme
While the other Zombies rattlin'their bones in time


Third verse is ;-

Left and right its getting sweet
When a bystander mash the zombies feet
The Zombie lift one finger to warn
Saying mister take care you mash me corn
Funniest sight I ever did see
Was a Zombie eating Codish and Pungee
Never more Mobie or Ginger Beer
Than at the zombie parade that took place out here

More or less - I dont guarantee the spelling , but thats whats on the record !

I met Nadia at the Theatre in the Round in Stoke on Trent in 1966. The local Anti Apartheid Movement put on a show commemorating the anniversary of the Sharpeville massacre with a script my wife and I wrote. It was read by actors from the theatre; Nadia and a Keele student (Jeff Parton?) sang protest songs - I remember Crow on the Cradle. I think Ben Kingsley and Robert Powell were among the readers. Nelson Mandela's speech "Why I am prepared to die" closed the programme.The show was a sellout (in aid of AAM) and Nadia was moving beyond belief

I knew Nadia a little during the sixties. She, Sidney Carter, Donald Swann and I did some TV and folk places together in Edinburgh.
I only once heard her sing "Red and Green Christmas" and it haunts me still (though I can't remember the tune or words!). So far as I recall "Port Mahon" was writted be Sidney (who also wrote "Down Below", and "Lord of the Dance". Nadia sang it like magic.

She was a fine person and beautiful singer. Very happy to hear of her again.

Nadia Cattouse sings "Red and Green Christmas" on "Club Folk Voluume 1" and "B.C. People" and "All Around My Grandmother's Floor" on "Club Folk Volume 2" (Peg Records, PS2 and PS3, both 1972).

Mention is made in a previous posting (Big Tim 7.4.2002) of a line of hers "We musn't spoil the tellyvee [sic]"!

I seem to remember the verse in a song about the commercialisation of Christmas (so what's new?:

I don't know what made me do a search on 'Nadia Cattouse' but I'm very pleased to see such a wealth of data in a still-live thread here.

Does anyone remember Nadia's brief song of domestic tragedy that went something like this :-

Hosannah!
I build me house, oh
Ahah!
I build it on the sandy ground,
Ahah!
...

[after which it gets destroyed by various weather conditions]

I've a recording of it somewhere, off air, from 1966. I think my favourite one, though, was "Good Luck to the Buck", which I'm sure must have been written by Sydney Carter, as he gives an intro to the song between verses one and two of Nadia's performance.

I remember seeing Nadia on TV much more recently, perhaps in the late 1980's or early 1990's? They referred to her earlier TV work and showed a brief clip of her as she now was.

Nadia's singing was certainly one of the inspirations that brought me into the folk movement.

Cheers,

Mike

Hello did Nadia write the lyrics for Kelston roundhill, and does anyone have an idea to which Kelston roundhill it refers to.

Hi
Don't really know any of her music, but my Husband is her Nephew. He met up with her recently and we are planning to meet again soon. I will certainly ask her, and also show her this very interesting thread. I am sure she will be amazed that she still attracts so much interest.

You might be able to help me, so far I have a photo from the British national Archives and a little Information on the British Honduras Forestry department which left here in 1941 to go to Scotland. I just recently opened a museum in Cayo and have two friends who served with this department during the war. I want to erect a monument and paint all the names of the men who went, before they fade away into the past. So if you could gather any Information or copies of photos to help me this would be greatly appreciated.

Many Thanks

I have fond (although hazy) memories of Nadia on television in the 1960s. There was one program that I used to see her on fairly regularly, maybe "Hootenany" which someone mentioned or was it "Stramash"?

If Nadia is indeed still with us, I hope very much that she is well and knows that many of us remember her dearly.
