Gerry Stickells. Not a musician, but a significant presence behind many big names.

Rest In Peace Alan Bell of the Taverners, who were a fixture of my youth having seen them various times with my parents. I found them to be like a more serious equivalent of the likes of the Yetties and the Houghton Weavers although they could be a laugh too. Alan wrote the song Bread and Fishes and many other great songs. I still have my I saw the taverners in the forest badge from when they did a gig at the theatre in the forest at Grizedale. I remember him being part of a sing around at Furness Folk Festival at Ulverston and he was sill in fine voice, (I decided not to join in that afternoon). My parents were due to see his final performance at the temporary revival of the Fylde Folk Festival, and I am sure there will be a few poignant moments for all those who attend as at present it is still going to go ahead. https://www.folkmusic.net/htmfiles/inart528.htm

They were so good live.  I only saw them 3 times, I think...but every one a corker.

 Sad I first saw him on Saturday Night Live, circa 1975 or 1976. He was so eccentric and his choice of material so unusual that I thought it might be a joke - I thought it was John Belushi under the hat and sunglasses. He was utterly unique; I'm sorry I never got a chance to see him live before he retired.  RIP
