Mark Ross Obit: Fiddler Alan Jabbour (1942-2017) (10) RE: Obit: Fiddler Alan Jabbour (1942-2017) 15 Jan 17


I knew Allan for aomost 40 years. Though we only saw each other 4 or 5 times, he was always a warm , friendly, and inspiring friend. His knowledge of American Fiddle Music was something he was always passionate about sharing with others. The last time I saw him was when iI stopped in D.C. on an East Coast trip 16 years ago. I stayed with Karen and him at their lovely home for a a few days. When we weren't trading tunes he would take me for walks in Rock Creek Park, show me around the National Cathedral, and of course allowed me to delve into the archives at Folklife Center, of which he was founding director. To get an idea of who he was I suggest that you go to YouTube and check out a talk he gave on American Fiddle Tunes. My He Rest In Peace.
