Thread Name: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP (1940-2011)
Subject: RE: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP
What a sad loss. Ray was one of the greatest female singers we were lucky enough to hear (There was a period of some years when The Bonny Birdy was never more than inches from my turntable). She was a brilliant ballad singer but also adept at humorous songs and as mentioned many times she could be very, very funny.

She wasn't somebody I could say I knew well, but I did see her countless times at clubs and festivals over the last 40 odd years, and like Richard Mellish I have particularly fond memories of her in late night sessions at the National at Sutton Bonnington (the last time, I think, her and Louis Killen were egging each other on late into the night). I shall treasure the memories.


Condolences and best regards to Colin and all her family from me and Rhiannon.
