Subject: RE: Obit: Frank Purslow (25 April 2007)
I dance with The Traditional Bampton Morris Dancers, and when I first took up the fiddle it was Frank that taught me.

Up until a few years ago I played in the Bampton Barn Dance band with him. He had a great knowledge of music of all types and was always keen to pass on to others what he knew.

Frank had many strong opions and was never shy of saying what he thought, but that is what makes a character like Frank.

I will miss him very much as I owe a great deal to him. Our traditions have never been more precious, the important thing is to keep the traditions going and relevant. That is most defiantly what he would have wanted.
