Video

In this YouTube video, Tony Haynes sings Cyril's Reunion, his tribute to Cyril Tawney. He wrote to me: “I knew Cyril and his wife Rosemary very well. I am also ex Royal Navy, and in the 70s and 80s booked Cyril on folk club tours in the Herts/Beds/Bucks area [in the] UK. They stayed with me at my home in St Albans Herts, and we visited them when they lived in Leeds.”
