Subject: RE: Obit: Peter Kennedy (10 June 2006)
I have only just learned of Peter's death, which was very sad to hear. I met him once at Gloucester Museum just before the first Pipe and Tabor Festival, but subsequent to this meeting we enjoyed some e-mail correspondence. When he heard that I was the musician for Bucknell in the 1980s he enquired whether I had ever been asked to record the tunes, and I said that I hadn't (hoping that he might!!) but this never came about.

As a Primary school girl in St Albans during the 50s I must have danced to many of his band's 78rpm records in the school playground, and he was tickled pink to learn that a friend of mine had found some of his old 78s in a Chepstow junk-shop!

Top man, RIP
