Memories of Stan Rogers

I was the only musician to perform at all five Farrago festivals so I can't remember the year but I do remember Stan standing up during musicians' supper and belting out Barrett's Privateers while we sat slack jawed and amazed.  Nobody knew the lyrics.Stan finished the entire song, sat down and ate his dinner.
