It may be worth noting that the "In Memoriam" thread exists to enable Mudcatters to research those folk artists who have died.

Thank you. Hadn't heard of John Renbourn's death.

Margaret Barry died in 1989 [see wikipedia], John McCormack in 1945, Kirsty MacColl in 2000, so should all have been listed before. Thanks for catching up with these.

Checked back on this old thread to research something. Feel moved to add one of my favourite quotations, tho it comes from a book which overall I do not greatly care for -- Laurence Sterne's 'Tristram Shandy', 1759-67:

"We had a fat, foolish scullion ... Master Bobby is dead, said Obadiah; he is certainly dead! –– So am not I, said the foolish scullion."

Not so foolish that time, IMO.

And so am not I!

≈M≈

But who is to add since last entry nearly two years ago?

If I see a thread that doesn't interest me I find it easy to just not click on it, but go on to something that does catch my interest. No one will find every thread to their liking, but why add a post complaining about how boring you find the thread or try to add fake names that you think are funny.   If it doesn't appeal, move on to something else. Obviously, some folks are interested.

Astonishing that none of the following have been listed:

These have all been around in my lifetime, and were all Great.

It has been fascinating reading this thread. Some thought it was a farce and didn't take it seriously. Those of us who were folkies before the folk music revival happened regard names of the deceased with tremendous interest. After all, they were folks we listened to and some of them in person, and we loved traditional folk music heart and soul. It was our very life. I said once that I would never read the newspaper obituaries (sounded so morbid), but I now do that quite regularly. If I see someone I know (knew), I read the entire obit. The rest of you may realize this when you are old and gray. What surprises me are those reported as gone who were a lot younger than me, I thought.

Mudcat has its own "In Memoriam" thread which exists to celebrate those who have passed on since Mudcat was created.

It contains many of the above names as well as some who have not been mentioned here. It is always worth a visit as it has links to click to learn more.

Best wishes,

Peter

Please include Win Stracke and Archie Green in this list. They were both important.

I think that this thread is motivated by the fact that we lost one of the greatest of all,
Doc Watson, recently.


This mass obituary emphasizes that it's important to keep the tradition of folk music
alive in whatever way we can since many of the former carriers of the tradition have passed.

Is John Herald still alive? Or John Stewart with the KT?

Pete Seeger is ninety-two strong and as Springsteen has said, he has "outlived the bastards" such as McCarthy and his detractors. America's "tuning fork" is still resonant.
