from Lorna Fossum via Joe Offer:
" here is the text of the message that Alexa Sunshine posted to the Port Townsend Community Facebook page:

"Port Townsend family, I just got the news that Laura Martin (singing, folk dancing extraordinaire) passed away in her garden last night, after a night of singing and dancing with community. Oh my goodness. To all of us who loved this long-time staple of our community, my condolences."

I feel like I know Laura because we "met" most weeks on the Monday zoom Mudcat singing circle. She'll be greatly missed.

I just got through reading 200+ tributes & still can't believe this is real. Please make it not so.

Owing to dementia I did not make the connection with her name. She was kind to me.

Oh man...I remember her from the campouts Mary Garvey organised many years ago on the coast. She was a very nice person. I'm sorry to hear she's gone.

She shall have music wherever she goes!
Our ever-present, always singing (ever-munching )sweetheart, Laura Martin, being remembered by her PT community and beyond. She and I go back to the 1970's Seattle Folklore Society and early days of NW Folklife Festival.

Here she is at a few of our more recent SingPeace! Pilgrimage for Peace & Global Harmony events:

SingPeace! gypsy wagon inaugural in PT: Nov. 2009

NW Folklife 2010 in Seattle

"For Pete's Sake!" 2014 on Whidbey Island (Facebook photos)
We did an entire video interview with Laura prior to this 8 hour Pete Seeger tribute. Due to "technical problems," we lost this and most of the tapes from this series. But here is Laura singing at the event.

Sally, I can't get the Facebook pages to link (to turn them into hot links). It might have to do with the privacy settings on the account you're sharing from.

I can't get those links open either.

I had to join the Port Townsend Facebook group in order to add to the group-remembrance of Laura Joe posted, & now am being innundated by Facebook articles about events & lost pets (& beautious scenery) of Port Townsend, something I can't help thinking Laura would be laughing with, not at me about.

Go there for another long thread (I don't think you have to join to read, just to post) on Laura being collected by someone writing a newspaper article.

There's a clip of Laura accompanying a singer on choruses there.
