This really sucks! Another man done gone. A great picker who I first met 45 years ago. David played with everyone and did it better than anyone thought possible.

I was wondering how he died? David and I were friends back in the good old days of the Toronto folk scene.

I'm surprised that more people have not acknowledged the person and the performer that David was. He was a special person and his passing is a great loss to us all. I listened to Shorty's Ghost today and remembered fondly the times we had.

Please visit David's new web site at David Rea Music. I worked on the site with him, but when I called in early June to say it was ready for launch, I learned that he had been hospitalized. I just launched it on Saturday, after getting the green light from his significant other.

If you have memories of him, and would like to contribute to a "Tributes" page, please let me know. Photos are appreciated too!

A tribute concert is being planned in Portland, OR for early December. Sign-up at the web site if you'd like me to let you know details, or check back there in the coming weeks.

He often was at the Tumbleweeds
Fest in tri-cities, WA -- he will be missed

I remember meeting him in 1965 or 6 - I was an undergrad in Manchester and for some reason the planned studio audience for BBC tapings of 2 half-hour concerts of Ian & Sylvia could not get there. My "dorm", St. Anselm's Hall of Residence, was just down the road from the BBC Manchester studio and I was delighted to be invited. I chatted with David after the shows, an absolute gentleman. Felix Pappalardi was there as well.

I met David again at a Mariposa festival in the early-mid 70s. Still the gracious gentleman, and I am sorry to hear of his passing.

Go in peace, David, you had a good life.

John
