John CrookJohn Crook June 2016

The TwickFolk Committee and volunteers past and present are sad to report the passing of John Crook on Tuesday 16th May. John was a gentle man who brought calm and good humour to TwickFolk. As well as being TwickFolk’s secretary, he set up the room for gig nights, was chief lighting operative and, when a firm hand was required, he was the nicest bouncer you could ever hope to meet.

His children, Nell and Jack wrote to us that “We know that you and the rest of the TwickFolk family had known our dad as a regular attendee and volunteer for many years. He got so much joy from the music and being involved with what you all do. Music really was such a huge passion for him and we will ensure that we make it a big part of his final send off – it really couldn’t be any other way.”
