And Malcolm Douglas, of course

Perhaps we should drop or change the subheading after "Honor Roll" to "In Memoriam" or something, because not everyone on here was a musician (in the strict sense of the word, i.e. performing artist); and of the famous, not everyone was a Mudcatter. I'd like to see both included and keep the categorisation wide, but it also has to be accurate. The "Memoriam" tag would show that they are no longer with us, but without classifying them. What a good idea this thread is.

John Makin (Mr John), well known Brussels folkie, singer/songwriter, all-round good chap, died last week. He will be missed, esp by the regulars at St Andrew's Church folk nights, which he loyally supported, despite attaining superstar status with his hit "Potverdekke! - It's Great to be a Belgian". Sympathies to Anne and all his family.

I would like very much to nominate a much missed personality from the UK folk world, Vic Baker (Dudley Vic as we used to call him) AKA Professor Wingnut and half of the double act 'Dr Sunshines Pavement Show'. Vic was one of the nicest guys I have ever met and he was an absoloute genius at entertaining both children and adults. Dr Sunshines music hall nights at the meny festivals they did were the highlight of the weekends for many of us.

Sadly Vic died in 1999 and I have always thought that the organising comittee of Bromyard Folk Festival should have an annual memorial concert or music hall night in him memory as he did so much for the festival in its early years. His partner Dave Hunt who sometimes posts here has written this lovley tribute to him - sorry I can't do the blue clicky thing.

I did write in the liner notes for the Mudcat WATER CD that "I personally would like to dedicate the new Mudcat CDs to all our dear departed Mudcatters who have over these past 15 years given us a great deal of pleasure through their music and contributions to the threads" , hence I endorse a thread dedicated to these lovely folk. I also like Bonnie's idea of extending it to other people who have made significant contributions to our kind of music, whatever that may be. Whilst there are differences between the two strains, it seems a little churlish to have two seperate threads, so I go for the greater range and celebrate all under one banner.

A couple of names to add from me; (one in each "strain")Teresa Tooley and Eva Casidy

Joe,

How far back are we going?

Personally, I'd like to see one specifically for Mudcatters. Some of the names posted above are so well-known throughout the folk world, it seems to me Mudcatters, whom most of us knew personally to some extent, may get lost in the shuffle.

I'm looking for that thread for you. In the meanwhile, eerily, some who've gone on, posted to THIs THREAD I started years ago. Reading through it reminded me of another to add:

L.R. Mole

I guess it's going to be a case of lots of names of (principally) North Americans many of whom we on the other side of the pond have not heard, and of course vise versa. And I think that's OK.
Just wondering how far we want to go with "musicians of note"
Hopefully the nominations would have had an impact on a fair spectrum of our community (not just mudcatters)

Grant Rule of Pig's Ear (has his own thread at the moment).

Jacqui Walker, my late wife, nee Turner. Dave Bryant (see above) did her obit thread here. When Transatlantic wanted to sign a folk act in the revival, I am told they were tossing up between her band (the Chapmen) and the Young Tradition. The rest is history. Her picture is in one of the books about the history of Sidmouth Folk Festival. I am also told that Bert Lloyd spent a lot of time trying to get into her pants without success.

Two peope who had an enormous influence as singers and who both died recently - Mike Waterson and Ray (Rae) Fisher - she and brother Archie were my first real contact with folk singers in 1961 - at Festival Late in Edinburgh - where I was working at the time - (it ran every night of the week during the 3 weeks of the Edinburgh Festival) Other performers there included Enoch Kent, Gordie MacCulloch and Bobby Campbell - (later the Exiles) Hamich Imlach - a slim young man in those days, and a regular, Domenic Behan- (usually my job to get him a cab when he was incapable of walking!)The whole thing was a great introduction to traditional song!

Great idea! Could we have both a thread for Mudcatters and one for musicians? If not the Mudcatters might indeed get lost among the great number of musicians we've lost in recent years. Mudcatters who were also musicians could easily be mentioned on both threads, I think.

I'll come up with something on Iain MacKintosh before Christmas, I hope. He died five years ago but due to my life going astray in all directions this year I didn't get round to reviving his obit thread.
