Thread Name: Obit: folksinger & songwriter Jim Reid-July 2009
Subject: RE: Obit: Jim Reid - R.I.P.
Jim Reid's myspace page has more information.

I did know Jim, albeit not well. He was at every Keith Festival apart from the last one or two, being a founder member. He was always a gentleman and very kind to me and my partner. I loved to hear his voice; it had an indescribable quality and gentleness. His settings of Violet Jacob's poetry to music have become classics, especially "The Wild Geese", "Hallowe'en" and "Noran Water", and sad though today is, we have those.
