Austin Wootton

 9th Dec 2018 ..We heard yesterday that long time pupil and great friend Austin Wootton has passed away. This man had an incredible baritone voice who was an inspiration to us all. His performances were always deeply moving and he offered everyone else his personal support to feel confident to perform to their highest ability.

He especially encouraged young people.

He will be greatly missed and we are all thinking of his family and of the wonderful moments that we were lucky to share with him. He was my pupil for 14 years and I was honoured to share an hour a week with him for so long.

n.

Many of the songs he sang will not be sung by others. His epic rendition of Buddy Can you Spare a Dime was charged by his life story with his memory of his father coming to Coventry to work on the war reparations. Austin was a modest and very tender man who loved the romantic songs and their stories.

                                   

RIP Austin xx
