Stewart Obit: Don Firth (1931-2015) (125* d) Obit: Don Firth (1931-2015) 04 Sep 15

Sad news from Seattle: Bob (Deckman) Nelson phoned me this morning - "It is my sad duty to announce the passing of Don Firth. He died in Seattle, Washington on Friday morning, September fourth, 2015. He was a pillar of the folk music community of the Pacific Northwest since the early 1950's. He was unique and will be greatly missed. Here is a link to a recent article about Don." Bob Nelson

Don was a founding member of the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society, a great source of knowledge on folk music, a long-time member of Mudcat, and a true gentleman and friend. He introduced me to Bob Nelson soon after I moved to Seattle nineteen years ago, and they both gave me a great introduction to the folk music of the Pacific Northwest. I will miss him, but feel very fortunate to have known him.

Cheers, S. in Seattle
