Come Join The Chorus
It is with great sadness that I have to say, having heard from our friends at Chippenham Festival, that Ted Poole, organiser, folk enthusiast, MC, great chorus singer, trade unionist and all round good and kind man has passed away. Ted, with his wife Ivy, had been running folk clubs and music events in and around Swindon for about fifty years. A great supporter of local musicians, singer/songwriters and always gave great encouragement to young, up and coming artists. He will be sorely missed in the music business and particularly in the Wiltshire music scene. As Bob Berry of Chippenham Festival said, 'One In A Million'.
