Subject: RE: 2016 Obit: Ray Downes
I too miss Ray's Obit.

I knew Ray slightly, as part of the WA's folk scene in the late 70's when he sang with Blackthorn. Our connection was that we shared the same surname.

At a National a few years ago, he was kind enough to give me a CD version of Blackthorns cassette "Footsteps Home" a tape I enjoyed for many years until it died of over use and old age.
