Ray Croll

The Broom o' the Cowdenknowes

http://youtu.be/2dJJBx4niwg

The Broom o' the Cowdenknowes is a traditional Scots song

Ray Croll is such a popular performer within a very large radius of Bristol. He has been know to ‘folk it up’ regularly for up to seven nights a week and that’s commitment and enthusiasm. Ray has reached the grand age of 86 years old and still going strong though I believe now he’s cut down his nights out a little. If ever there was an award to recognise this, he should have it, well done Ray what a trooper you are!  More from Ray at http://www.myspace.com/raycroll
