Matthew Edwards Obit: Les Jones (Les in Chorlton) 5 March 2017 (31) Obit: Les Jones (Les in Chorlton) 5 March 2017 07 Mar 17

Rob Phillips has just posted on Facebook the sad news that Les Jones passed on Sunday 5 March 2017. Folk Songs and Tunes with the Beech Band
Les was a prolific contributor to Mudcat, with over 7000 posts to his name. He had a lively inquisitive, and sometimes mischievous, approach but he always conveyed a good-humoured attitude. He was a founder of the session at the Beech in Chorlton which has nurtured and supported many singers and musicians, although he disclaimed any role as "leader" of what he termed an anarcho-syndicalist collective. He was nevertheless an inspiration to many people from Manchester and much further afield. I expect others will add more detail, but I would like to pay tribute to Les as a lovely man who will be much missed.

Sadly his last contribution on Jan 1 2017, concerned musicians lost in 2016, so the Grim Reaper is evidently continuing his deadly harvest into 2017.
