Dave Sutherland Obit: Ruth Cooper - Robin Hood Folk Club 8 Aug 16 (11) Obit: Ruth Cooper - Robin Hood Folk Club 08 Aug 16


Just received the sad news via Bill Wilkes of Grand Union Folk that Ruth Cooper (now Ruth Steggles) passed away in the early hours of this morning. We knew that she was very ill but this has come as quite a shock to all of us on the Nottingham scene. Ruth was a tireless worker for folk music organising the Robin Hood Folk Club in various parts of Nottingham for over forty years and prior to that she was involved with The Rising Sun in Catford. She was also a leading light in the promotion of Shape Note hymn singing in the East Midlands and much further afield. Our sympathies and condolences to her daughter Hannah and her husband David. RIP.
