I never met the man but I did hear lots about him, all good. It was about four years back that Tom began to face serious hardships that affected his mobility and music, but the combination of his courage and Linn's support created a beautiful portrait of what it means to have lived well and died well.
PS Rumanci told me about meeting Tom once for a short time--ten/fifteen minutes--and they talked about English concertinas. She says the man knew his stuff and parenthetically he mentioned what a bugger they are to play at times. Doesn't get much better than that if you ask me. Rest well, Tom.
