Subject: RE: Obit: Mudcat Honor Roll: Musicians of Note
I would like very much to nominate a much missed personality from the UK folk world, Vic Baker (Dudley Vic as we used to call him) AKA Professor Wingnut and half of the double act 'Dr Sunshines Pavement Show'. Vic was one of the nicest guys I have ever met and he was an absoloute genius at entertaining both children and adults. Dr Sunshines music hall nights at the meny festivals they did were the highlight of the weekends for many of us.

Sadly Vic died in 1999 and I have always thought that the organising comittee of Bromyard Folk Festival should have an annual memorial concert or music hall night in him memory as he did so much for the festival in its early years. His partner Dave Hunt who sometimes posts here has written this lovley tribute to him - sorry I can't do the blue clicky thing.
