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!..

  • 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
