Subject: RE: Obit: Seattle's John Ross, Mudcatter, April 09
I emailed Bruce Baker, of the Seattle FolkMusic Society, when I read the news here. Stewart and Fred M and some other catters are also involved in the Seattle Song Circles, which include quite a few people who knew John.
Yes, John will be quite conspicuous in his absence, especially at Folklife but way beyond that as well. I do hope there will be some sort of tribute to John at Folklife and before that too.
(I think the band scramble should continue at Folklife as "The John Ross Memorial Band Scramble," though he will be hard to replace as emcee.
