A Song for Hazel Lester Film 1984

Thanks to Nigel ward, Pete Willow and CVfolk for uploading this treasure of a tribute Coventry folkie Hazel Lester from 1984. I had fled Coventry by then but it's great to see this footage of those I knew back then - Derek Brimstone, Pete Willow, Dave Ragtime Bennett, Margo Buchanan Smith, Martin and Ray Jenkins etc.  It's a great tribute to Hazel and a great time capsule of the Coventry folk scene and camaraderie therein.

Below is a video with all the musical audio from the above film featuring Derek Brimstone, Dave Bennett, Pete Willow, Mick Cullen, Dennis Clark, Mick Stuart.

  1. Thanks for posting this film. I went to school with Hazel and loved her company. She was a force of nature. I have been away from England for a long time and this brought back great memories of her and the folk scene of the time.
