Thread Name: Ray Fisher unwell (Dec 2009)-died 31 Aug 2011
Subject: RE: Ray Fisher unwell: good thoughts, please
Please pass on my best wishes to Ray as well. I haven't seen her for some time, but I remember a good evening and a lot of laughs when she played our local folk club in the 1990s and cleaned us out of malt whiskey (with a bit of help from me, it must be admitted).

Ray Fisher will always come top of my 'female singers' list and very likely my 'any singers' list, too. She can weave incomparable magic with the great ballads, but also make what in other hands could be a throwaway song into something profoundly moving.

Hope I get the chance to hear you sing sometime soon, Ray.
