IT IS WITH REGRET THAT WE HAVE TO INFORM YOU OF THE PASSING OF DAVE HOWDON, HUSBAND OF ANNE, A SUPPORTER AND PARTICIPANT OF THE BRITISH FOLK MUSIC SCENE FOR A GREAT MANY YEARS, WE WILL ENDEAVOUR TO POST MORE NEWS AS AND WHEN AVAILABLE, OUR THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU ANNE, AND YOUR FAMILY.
Until recently, Dave and his wife Anne were dedicated members of the folk club. Dave was often MC for the evening, carrying out his duties with memorable enthusiasm and flair. He was very proud of his Geordie roots. Together with Anne he was a stalwart of the folk scene, especially in the north, where they volunteered as door people or to carry out any behind-the-scenes work. People such as Dave and Anne kept and keep the folk scene going with their selfless volunteering. Dave was a great lover of songs of the sea and used his deep bass voice to great effect to perform them to the best of his ability. His expertise and knowledge will be very much missed at The White Hart Folk Club.
