Subject: In Memoriam
From: Joe Offer
Date: 03 Nov 11 - 08:02 PM

It was suggested that we should have one thread that gives tribute to Mudcatters and other musicians who have died, dedicating one message per person to honor people who have made a contribution to music, especially folk music and the folk community. Each message would include links to other threads about that person.
Seems to me somebody started a thread like that quite some time ago. Can anybody find it for me?
Thanks.

-Joe-
      This is an edited PermaThread®, intended to provide information about musicians who have died, especially about members of the folk community who have gone on before us. This thread will be edited by Joe Offer and Waddon Pete. Feel free to post to this thread, but remember that all messages posted here are subject to editing or deletion.
      -Joe Offer-


      If your post only lists names to be added, they will be deleted once the names have been added to the lists in the first few posts! All your contributions are much appreciated and although the posts will be deleted, the names of those supplying additions to the Memorial Thread will be listed at the end of the thread.
      Thanks.

      -Peter-

Every so often Mudcat hosts an obit thread. Always these celebrate the life of some-one who is sadly missed and it is often poignant to read the tributes posted.

But life rolls on. This is shown clearly by the inexorable way that the obit thread moves down the listings until it finally takes residence in the Mudcat archive. Sometimes it will be refreshed. Sometimes it lies forgotten by all but the original poster. That has always struck me as sad.

A while ago now the idea of a Mudcat Roll of Honour was suggested. Many Mudcatters felt this was a good idea and so…. here it is (with a name change as suggested by Bonnie Shaljean).

Bradfordian has personally dedicated the new Mudcat CD set (This is Us) to all our dear departed Mudcatters.

I would ask you to be patient as names are added. I would also like your help to fill out the list! However, be aware of the very few guidance notes!

…..This thread is for those people associated with the world of folk music in its widest sense.

…..The people on the thread must have had an obit thread running on Mudcat.

…..We only go back 24 years to 1996.

If anyone else would like to start a thread for those many and wonderful people who shared their talents with us before then, then I'm sure that will be appreciated!

Any post on this thread should only be a name and a link to their obit thread please. If you want to discuss or add anything else, please use the thread running at http://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=141258

Many thanks,

Peter

Just a reminder that some posts to this thread have been moved over to the Obit: Mudcat Honor Roll: Musicians of Note thread.

Particular thanks to Dave the Gnome for reminding us all of Gary Wright from Swinton.

It was obit posts like Gary's that were the spark to get involved with the Memoriam Thread.

Gary is clearly well respected and still much missed. However, his thread only attracted 6 posts and then slid off the radar. He deserved more recognition than that and, hopefully, the Memorial Thread will allow more people to celebrate his contribution.

As I said above, life rolls on. This is shown clearly by the inexorable way that obit threads move down the listings until they finally take residence in the Mudcat archive. Sometimes they are refreshed. Sometimes they lie forgotten by all but the original poster. That has always struck me as sad.

So....I know there have been other short, but still valuable, obit threads. Can you help us locate them as well?

Thank you.

People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which bears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts in the same way as when they were alive.

It is as though they were travelling abroad. ~Marcel Proust

Sonnet 03/11/07 MLXV

To absent friends and lost loves let us drink,
Recalling smiles and times that all once shared.
On those no longer near let us now think,
To bring back reasons that for them we cared.
Some are not here, yet still remain, within
The songs and words they left behind. And some
Are in our souls, when hopes or dreams begin:
A part of what each of us have become.
To those apart let us now raise a glass
And take a moment to give thanks for all
That we from others have ourselves received.
The world's a school, and our lives just a class
In playing well with others. Can we call
It more? Are we by our egos deceived?

Bearded Bruce.

For most of the departed named in this thread, there is a separate Mudcat thread devoted to that person. Anyone can look at those threads. I am grateful that Waddon Pete is putting those names together here. It reminds me of a war memorial which lists the names of those departed from a single town.

There are some additions to make to the roll. Bob Gibson (1996), Frazier Patrick "Pat" Henry (2018) and Joe Daly (2019). The roll began back in 2011 and the trawl through Mudcat at the time didn't bring Bob Gibson to the fore. It should have done! You can read about him here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Gibson_(musician)

Pat Henry was a well known Folk musician and organiser in Alaska. You can read about him here: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/juneauempire/obituary.aspx?pid=190494051

Joe Daly was also a lifetime performer of Folk Music in the US state of New York. You can read about him here: https://thelcn.com/lcn01/video-popular-folk-musician-joe-dady-dies-at-61-20190519

Issue 132 of The Living Tradition magazine carries on page 10 an obituary of Joe Rae, Gutcher of this parish, who died on 13th December. I was sad to see this, and surprised that no-one else here seems to have been aware of his departure.

This seems to have been his last post here.

I have added Dave Cooper to the roll today. He was involved in music and unaccompanied singing for most of his life performing as a child and progressing through the well documented folk club "Phoebus Awakes" at the Rising Sun in Catford, South London and The Robin Hood Folk Club in Nottingham. He was a good mate for more years than I care to remember.

Two fine folk performers who gave a great deal to the music. Ray has a good mention on the web, Flora not so much. Doesn't detract from her playing however!

Pete, I think Colin Dryden (1943-1988), whose songs and life have been under discussion on Mudcat quite regularly, has maybe missed out on an OBIT!!
Though he was born in, and died in, Bradford, Yorkshire, most of his singing/performing was done in Australia.

Though I met him and regularly saw him perform, I didn't know him well and I'm not sure that I'd be the best one to write his Obituary for Mudcat!!

However, his niece has written of him on 30July2013 and also the late Dermott Ryder of him and his music (published on on 17March2020) and both are posted here :

What do you think can be done??

You know, Rich-Joy, if Mr. Dryden died in 1988,
then his death and obituary
preceded the existence of Mudcat in the first place.
I mean, how long has Mudcat been around?
35 years, maybe less?

So it has sense that he would have no Obit thread
at the time he died
in a forum that did not yet exist!


Having said that,
maybe a Colin Dryden appreciation thread would be appropriate?

That's True, Keb! I'd forgotten that small point, haha!!

I guess coz he was one of those characters where his death had been "presumed" a number of times in Australia (alcohol/drugs loomed large, I think, alongside his genius), that Oz Folkies stopped believing he might have actually gone.
I know my partner and I were surprised when quite some years later, Colin's earlier death back in England, was finally and absolutely confirmed!

So yes, perhaps an Appreciation Thread may be the way to go?? .........
