Subject: RE: 2012 Obit: Hannah Hutton (Northumbrian singer)
Hannah's husband Joe was a shepherd in Upper Coquetdale at Rowhope. They retired to Rothbury where many may have heard Hannah sing at the annual festival. She was one of the last generation of traditional unaccompanied singers.She had learned many songs from her parents and had a huge repertoire of songs especially about her beloved Northumberland.She learned her songs by ear,usually after one hearing and then sang them with great feeling.She was a true country woman, an interesting conversationalist and a lovely person.
She will be greatly missed.
My condolences to all her family.
