Have just heard from a Canadian friend that Rita MacNeil has died - story here

"Working man blues" was sung at a session at the National Folk Festival in Canberra at Easter, it's popular in Australia as well as other countries.

Can Joe or a clone combine the two threads about Rita, and remove the incorrect name in mine? Don't know what I was thinking of when I typed the wrong name.......Ed T and I must have pressed the 'submit' button within seconds of each other.

I first heard her song, "Working Man" on the radio in the car on the way home from work. It made a profound impression on me then, and continues to do so today. Her songs all speak to our common feelings. She will be greatly missed.

I have added her name to the Mudcat Roll of Honour.

RIP

Peter

Requiescat In Pace.

Barbara and I used to watch her on television some years ago. She seemed like a really nice person and we enjoyed her singing very much.

I'm sad that this lady has died, and I'm sad for myself that until today I had never heard of her. I've watched the clips and it's obvious to me that I have missed a great talent, and a wonderful person. Now, at this too late hour, I have become a Rita MacNeil fan. Rest in Peace Rita. Condolences to your family.
