Thread Name: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP (1940-2011)
Subject: RE: Obit: Ray Fisher RIP
I have just come back from Llantrisant Folk Club, where Steve Ashley broke the news of Ray's passing. Sorry for the late post, but it takes time to sink it all in, to listen to Ray on You Tube, to read through the messages. Ray wasn't only a mighty singer, but she had wit like a razor and a truly lovely person as well. My first club was the Valley Folk Club, and my first encounter with Ray showed her to be completely unique and a very special lady. Ray last played at Llantrisant, and the occasion was everything we hoped it would be - sheer magic. Our love and support goes out to Colin and family.
