Thread Name: 2013 Obit: Dave Bulmer (Age 62)
Subject: RE: Obit: The LATE Dave Bulmer (August 2013)
I remember Dave from way back in the late '70's when I used to attend an Irish music session at the old Roscoe pub in Sheepscar, Leeds. I was a complete novice at the time, but Dave always had time for me and a pint was always on the table when I walked in and encouragement given when I was trying to learn a few Irish tunes. Turn the clock on 20 odd years and I was doing the "Irish theme pub" circuit. Whenever I was booked at Scruffy Murphy's in Harrogate, Dave would often turn up with his accordion and do the last set with me. He was a great guy, superb musician, and will be sadly missed. My deepest condolences to his wife Ruth and family. God bless.
