What are your favourite Country and Western moments?

We have done all kinds of songs/music over the past few weeks now it is time for

................................COUNTRY and WESTERN

Your favourite singers, songs, memories etc please.

There is an ex Torquay United, Notts County footballer called Dick Edwards, a very great Country and Western singer/entertainer, He had one of the best voices I have ever heard in C&W.

He always started his gig with the words ''My name is Dick, hope you like it''

Carl Perkins, now there is a C &W singer not to be missed!..



Now it is time to go to your local Breathe Easy group.

Just go along to join or phone 03000 030 555for details Mon -Fri 9am 5pm

sorrow and regret ! Try Hank Williams as Luke The Drifter. A real tear jerker and so true in many ways.

We like the grass roots Scrummpy and Western. The local guys and gals with no real desire to seek stardome, just perform because they love to entertain. Two of our favourites from our time in the RAF in Germany was Hamish Imlach, now sadly left us and Harvey Andrews from the West Midlands. He still performs around the Midlands although we haven't been to see him for a while. During the problems in Northern Ireland he wrote a song "The Soldier" and even now that thankfully the problems are being solved, the record means a lot to us. It was on You Tube but I don't think it is appropriate to post a link.

Les Noden in Torbay, still going strong
