This from John Barrow of Stoneyport Agency, Edinburgh
the year's started badly!
I'm afraid I am writing to say that an old friend Peter Boond died yesterday afternoon, Sunday 13 January. He had been suffering from lung cancer for quite a while.
Peter was a founder member and leader of the Scots folk band Ceolbeg which folded several years ago but not before making a number of good albums on Greentrax in the 1990's. Davy Steele was a significant member of the latter Ceolbeg line-up on these albums, as was piper Gary West, clarsach player Wendy Stewart as well as various others at various times including Colin Matheson, Andy Thorburn, Katie Harrigan and Jim Walker. Peter also worked with Stoneyport for a brief period.
I don't have funeral arrangements yet but will pass them on when I do.
