Mike Waterson

A couple of days ago I wrote about Mike Waterson being extremely ill. Mike died at 3.00am this morning. A true giant of English music has gone, but he was also a completely ordinary man. He had no pretensions, he just wrote and sang his songs, and they will live on.

Increasingly, I am feeling privileged and hugely fortunate to have attended the Watersons concert in Hull last August. It was the last great celebration of that great musical family in Mike's lifetime.
