Thread Name: Ray Fisher unwell (Dec 2009)-died 31 Aug 2011
Subject: RE: Ray Fisher unwell: good thoughts, please
So sorry to hear that Ray has had a setback, but she's a fighter, so here's hoping for her improvement soon.
One of my early and treasured memories of her was in the Berkeley Hall in Glasgow around 1960 when she, Archie and the fiddler Bobby Campbell were part of the support for Cisco Houston at a concert put on by Janey and the late Norman Buchan. Cisco did a wonderful set of hard-hitting songs (including Guthrie material that we all sang with him) and brought back Ray etc. for a finale. She just stood at his elbow and gazed up at him in wonderment! (Not that any of the rest of us would have done any different.)
All my best wishes to Ray and family.
