This from Pete Shepheard
GORDON EASTON of Tyrie, Aberdeenshire has passed away aged 91 - a wonderful singer and a great character who also played fiddle, jew's harp and was an excellent diddler and had latterly taken up the melodeon. Gordon's funeral will take place in Tyrie Kirk at Tyrie just off the A98, 5 miles SW of Fraserburgh on Monday at 1.00pm. I am so glad he had the chance to become so well known in his latter years - and that we were able to record him when he was a guest at the FifeSing Festivals. Thanks to Steve Byrne for putting up the link to his majestic performance of the Barnyards of Delgaty.

Sorry to hear this: I remember seeing Gordon at the Fifesing at Collessie on several occasions.

Gordon Easton; a legend, whose singing bought the joy he had in singing to the hearts of listerners.

What a lovely epitaph Triplane. My condolences to all who knew him and loved him. I have added him to the "Memoriam" Roll.

RIP

Echoing Triplane, I was privileged to see Gordon several times and the most noticeable thing was his rapport with an audience, who instantly responded to his evident joy and pride in his material -- we all felt the better for being there!

And there were always smiles of appreciation around the room, delighted to be in such a 'special place' with a consummate performer who was pleased to share with us.

It was wonderful to get to hear Gordon at Whitby last year.
Condolences to his family.
