Thread Name: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP (1940-2011)
Subject: RE: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP
I met Ray back in 1997 when I lived in Edinburgh and found her to be delightful, funny and just wonderful. I'll never forget a time at the New Bedford Summerfest one year when Little Johnny England was doing their mainstage performance and Ray ventured out into a wide empty space between the stage and the audience and started doing her tarantella dance. All eyes were on Ray.

I also recall her performance at the National back in '05 when she sang "Mill O' Tifty's Annie". Not a dry eye in the place.

She was one of the greats and though I did not know her well, I count her as one of the biggest influences in my life.

My thoughts are with Colin and the family.
