Subject: RE: Obit: Peter Kennedy (10 June 2006)
I was fortunate enough to meet Peter on several occasions in Gloucester. Ironically the last time I saw him, I spent a lovely evening in his company at a mutual friend's wake, ten years ago, which was a joyous occasion. A lovely man, a true gentleman, and stunning musician. He would bring his fiddle and two melodeons to play at sessions. I still have the image of him scooping up the bellows of his melodeon, as he played, with the tip of his tongue sticking out of the corner of his mouth. I can't stop myself doing that too when I put on mascara! A sad loss and I think he would wish the music to be available to all, as so many sought him out, in later years, to share their musical "finds" with him.
