John Foreman, the Broadsheet King, has passed away. He was one of a kind and he was a regular guest at my folk club where he was deservedly popular. He had a unique way of delivering his songs and material and also produced many books and broadside ballad sheets. He was very generous with his printing and gave me many of his products, '...as I'm having a bit of a clear out!"

Farewell John.

I added Bob (Deckman) Nelson to the roll today. He had a great connection with folk music, co-founding the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society. It's worth reading through the thread and getting a picture of the man. As Pushkara Sally Ashford says in her post; "He was as much a shepherd of those of us in the folk music community as he was a performer and archivist".

RIP Bob

The Irish singer/folklorist Bill Meek, died Apr 2015; I gave some links on this thread 14 Sept 2023 and also on the obit thread for the recently deceased English William (Bill) Meek.
Alf Mac Lochlainn (died Dec 2018) - His son Colm, who died last year, is in the index and the link for him leads to a discussion which began when Mudcatter "keberoxu" started in 2018 as an obituary of Colm's father.
