Subject: RE: 2016 Obit: Alan White RIP (Dorset, UK)
Another good man gone.
I knew Alan for forty plus years and always revelled in his company, good humour and his gentlemanly ways. Not only have I lost a good friend but so has the folk world at large. Alan had an infectious passion for folk song, music, dance and the love of getting people together to share the sheer joy of it with each other.
He will be long remembered for not just the contributions he made to Sidmouth festival, founding the Middle Bar Singers or running the campsite; not just for founding the Wareham Wail but mainly for being himself. There will never be another Alan and as long as we remember him, he will always be with us.
Our hearts go out to Nikki and all his family with love.
Jon & Fred
