It could be I would never have tried to write my own songs had I not met JOAN URE 

And it may be that JOAN URE would not have begun writing songs had we not met

 Apart from becoming involved in two of her theatre productions she wrote and sent me many lyrics many of which became songs 

Always encouraging Joan Ure was responsible for introducing me to a BBC TV producer who used me in several 

FOLK IN FOCUS programs

One of the many lyrics which were written by Joan Ure and which I recorded as a song

A selection of the lyrics I worked on entitled TWELVE SONGS by JOAN URE can be found at



  There is an article by Jan McDonald entitled  ‘Is it not possible to have a Poem made out of Theatre?’ -
