This is a picture of my late brother George Hutchinson pictured as he was back in 1967 taken in the Belfast Hobbit folk club. George sadly died in 2005 from throat cancer, I continue keeping his memory alive by posting his recorded music online at where you will find his back catalogue. George grew up on the Cregagh estate in east Belfast in Burren Way only 4 doors away from George Best the soccer legend. Our family gets a mention in his biography probably because we were such a large family there was twelve of us four girls and eight boys. At the age of 16 years George was an an accomplished musician he was in a band called the Vampires they even had their picture in the Spotlight Magazine. George did get noticed by the same management company as Van Morrison. They came into our home they wanted George they signed him up the idea being to record an album and to go on tour across the UK and the US promoting it. My Mother signed the contract and things certainly looked very promising for young George. Sadly though young George lacked the vital confidence he bottled out, in fact he ran away, and so ended what should have been a career in the music industry. George remained all of his life writing and recording music, he was in various groups , one song which did get released was The RUmba Brothers release of The Dummy Shop recorded in 1979 as a double A side with Bob Doldrum. You will find these songs on the website George was 55 when he had cancer he died in a London Hospice, his music lives on.
