Join us in the Albany Studio every Second Sunday for a mega-music session from CV Folk.
This month we welcome Pat Cooksey!
Born in Limerick and raised in Liverpool and Coventry, Pat is a highly acclaimed singer-songwriter. His introduction to Irish Music came via the late great singer Luke Kelly of The Dubliners, whom he first met in Ewan McColl's singers club in London. He played a major part in Coventry’s lively folk club scene in the 1960s and was a founder member of the famous Dyer's Arms folk sessions in Spon End, which attracted musicians and singers from all over Britain and Ireland, including The Fureys. At that time Pat wrote topical songs for BBC Radio Birmingham. Sean Cannon (who later joined The Dubliners) was the first singer to include Pat's songs in his set, most notably The Sick Note, the hilarious account of a building site incident also known as Paddy and the Rope.
Now living in Germany, Pat is very much at home amongst the towering mountains, fairy tale castles, and endless forests of Bavaria, where he has become a considerable concert attraction. But he remains in close contact with Ireland and exchange visits of parties from Clare and Bavaria take place on a regular basis. This month sees one of his rare and welcome visits back to Coventry and he appears at CVFolk’s Second Sunday afternoon event on March 8th with support from The Boys of Ball Hill and talented Coventry singer and guitarist Craig Sunderland.
