Booth, Jackie

Back to performers

Gwilym Davies recorded Jackie Booth on 28 October, 19 November and 19 December 1979 at the Bisley House Pub in Stroud when he sang Cotswold Green, D-Day Dodgers, Old Joe Whip and Stonehouse Bay. Jackie Booth used to sing in this pub every week, accompanied by his wife on piano. He was a well known local character. At the time he was about 70 years old.

The only Booth family living in the Stroud area in the 1911 Census was Fred Booth, a general labourer and wood sorter, who was living at No 35 Bell Vue Cottages, Tower Hill, Stroud, with his wife Rose and children, Frederick William born 1910, Ivy born about 1905, Horcis born about 1907, and Arthur Reginald born 1910.
