The Magnificent Ambersons would like to thank everyone that took one of our CDs and made a donation to Christies Hospital, in rememberance of John Stoker. Thanks to your incredible generosity we raised £37! I suggest you all give yourselves what Winston got when he fell while rounding up his cows : A big pat on the back. Unfortunately, we now have only 5,000 CDs remaining and will continue to keep on about them until someone tells us to shut up. As you may be aware, the CDs available last night had inserts with a massive 'typo', these will no doubt be exceptionally valuable in years to come (conditions may apply).
In the face of popular demand, Keith Haines, Phil Jones and Bob Stamp would like to announce the formation of "The Magnificent Ambersons". To commemorate this momentous occasion, they have produced a sampler CD which will be available from Dave Hughes at the Folk Club. Technically it's 'FREE!' but it would be nice, in the unlikely event of you wanting one, if you gave a £2.00 donation to Dave Hughes, which will be added to the John Stoker fund for Christies Hospital. For a taste of the quality songs listen to track 2 now, completely at your own risk.
A video of the special night on 13th August 2013 which was a tribute to John Stoker is now available. Its has been filmed and edited to a very high standard. Its costs £10.00, of which £4.50 goes to the Christie Hospital.
See Yvonne on the door or contact Dave Hughes.
A separate web page has now been created to remember John. This contains photographs, sound recordings of John, a brief video, and Dave Hughes' excellent press release tribute to John.
Alan Casey has set up a Facebook group space exclusively for people who attended the Sing-Out Folk Club in Crewe and it’s associated functions, to keep in touch, share images, sounds, stories news, and memories, and perhaps update the “where are they now?” records.
The group already has some interesting contributions including the photograph on the right of Steve, Winston and myself in the Providence Jug Band in 1975. (we were probably playing Candyman!)
So if you attended the Sing-Out Folk Club in Crewe ask Alan Casey, Steve Green, Phil Brightman or any other existing member to invite you in.
