Subject: RE: Obit: Tony Capstick (UK)
Tony was a fine guitarist and a wonderful interpreter of traditional songs. He could take a song you'd heard a hundred times before and make it sound new.
His appearance at a folk club was always an occasion of great joy - often interspersed with an outburst of fury aimed at people talking when he was singing.
I'm very sad to hear of his death.
