Gordeanna was a fabulous generous person as well as a magnificent singer. Of many memories, I particularly recall one late night (wee sma hours) in the Southfield Hotel at the Girvan festival when I (a complete novice at the time) plucked up the courage to start a song.
To my amazement as I opened my mouth to sing, the exact same song (at the exact same time) came from Gordeanna across the room! Laughing at the coincidence, I mentioned it to her much later and she insisted that had she realised I was about to sing it, she would have shut up.
I, on the other hand, simply sat there in awe, feeling privileged to be in the company of one of the finest singers I have ever heard.
RIP Gordeanna and thanks for everything.
