Sad anniversary...Tony Cuffe

10 years ago today, we lost a great Scottish musician, singer, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Tony Cuffe.

There are quite a few recordings of Tony freely available to listen to on a website called "raretunes" - you should be able to "Google" it.
Those of you who knew or met him, please join me in raising a glass and / or playing a tune or singing a song in his memory.

Tony Cuffe was one of the finest & my all time favourites. Saw him dozen of times. Here he is singing the definitive Cornriggs with (of course) Ossian. Happy days. Consider the glass well & truly raised, Kenny! (I'd post Ossian's Road to Drumleman but I can't listen to it without sobbing like a baby - but then, I never could!)

December seems to abound in such anniversarys.

Close my eyes and I can still see and hear Tony.

Was it that long ago? I clearly remember him playing a split gig with Scott Alarik at Club Passim, (Cambridge, Ma.) and remarking on what a versatile, talented solo performer he was. Thanks to Kenny for reminding us of this sad anniversary.
