Drumshanty Obit: folksinger & songwriter Jim Reid-July 2009 (18) RE: Obit: folksinger & songwriter Jim Reid-July 2009 08 Jul 09

I don't know that anything "happened" - his death notice in The Courier said he passed "peacefully" at the home he was living in. Jim was diagnosed with dementia a few years ago, and he was clearly starting to have difficulties the last couple of times I saw him perform.

The very last time I saw him sing was at Keith Festival in 2007. At the end of his set on the Saturday night, he received a long (and tearful) standing ovation.

I don't think he performed much after that, and was certainly off the ciruit by the time his partner Julia made his myspace page.

According to an email from the TMSA, the funeral will take place at Letham Parish Church, Dundee Road, Letham, Angus on Monday 13 July at 12.00 noon, followed by the interment at Dunnichen Cemetery.
