Subject: RE: Obit: Matt Armour (Great kNight Folk Club)Feb 2009
More years ago than I care to remember I had moved up to MK from Kent and was desperate for some live music. A friend took me to the Vaults Bar in Stony Stratford one Sunday. I sat in one of the vacant seats and this big Scottish chap in the corner said `If you are going to sit there you will have to sing'..., I only knew one song at the time, but that didn't matter, every one was welcome..,. Matt was a one off..., a few years later still in the Vaults a group of us who enjoyed singing thought about forming a group, we were looking for a name and `The Five Men not Called Matt' were born, I think Matt was slightly bothered about what we were going to do but gave us plenty of encouragement and I know he enjoyed being the one called Matt when we sang together at the Vaults..
God Speed Matt, your sorely missed
