Thread Name: Obit: Frank Purslow (25 April 2007)
Subject: RE: Obit: Frank Purslow
Do you mean THE Frank Purslow who used to play with the Morris side in Bampton -in- the-Bush, near Brize Norton, and who did so much to collate and publish so many Morris tunes ?? If so, I remember him as a really nice man ( when I lived at nearby Carterton ) and a great concertina player !! Truly one of the "greats " in the field of traditional English music, and a terrible loss to us all.I always thought his name was Parsloe, but then the Oxfordshire accent in those parts can be tricky !( I"m from Henley, where we call a fire a "Fah " and wire "Wah " !! ).I am moving back to Henley next week, so must get some practice in !! RIP Frank.......Roger..
