I used to sing with Mike in his first duo, and was with him at Border Television for his first TV appearance (mine too).

We both ran a folk club in 1970 at the Manor House Hotel in Thornton-in-Craven, West Yorkshire on Thursday nights.

I am now in Florida and just learned from this site (March 25, 2009) that Mike is no longer with us. While we parted in bad spirits some 38 years ago, I think of him often and remember his love for Yorkshire history and the songs he wrote.
