Thread Name: Obit: Roy Harris, 9th Feb 2016
Subject: RE: OBIT 9th Feb 2016
Just picked up this dreadful news a short while ago and I'm still in shock. Roy and I were in our weekly correspondence just a fortnight ago discussing the fortunes of Nottingham Forest and I just sent the latest report to him yesterday. I hope that it was of some comfort to him that Traditions at the Tiger, the folk club he started in Long Eaton in 1991, celebrated its 25th Birthday on Sunday night and he was fondly remembered on that occasion. The encouragement that Roy gave to numerous singers and musicians was immense and those who held him in high regard as a singer are countless. Condolences to Elaine and Neil and family. UREDS.
