Thread Name: Obit: Peter Kennedy (1922-2006)
Subject: RE: Obit: Peter Kennedy (10 June 2006)
yes, I feel ambivalent about Kennedy on the one occasion I met him he was charming, and i have enjoyed and used his books.
but some of his antics were rather sad, the illegal bootlegging of one track off[ bald headed end of the broom] my record.
The really sad thing is that Peter felt that he had to DO such a thing, To support himself financially.
Folk Music Collectors should be supported by government grants to enable them to live above subsistence level.
on a positive note Peter was responsible for the introduction and promotion of dg melodeons in the UK
