Subject: RE: Obit: Roy Harris, 9th Feb 2016
I heard Roy sing when I was a college student spending a semester in London in 1975. I met him in person in the 2000's when he came to a house concert I was performing with Margaret Nelson and Kate Early in the DC area at Dennis and Judy Cook's house. I got a chance to tell him I'd seen him way back. He was a very nice man and we exchanged some CD's. I recently (last fall) had sent him one of Christmas band recordings because he was talking on Facebook about liking the original version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, as opposed to the newer, diva gargled versions. He also sent a kind note about that. May he rest in peace.
