Herga Kitty 2019 Obit: Colin Ross, Northumbrian piper (12) Obit: Colin Ross 16 Jun 19

Having spotted that there is no mention of Colin Ross on the In Memoriam thread, I've realised that there doesn't seem to be an obit thread for Colin either, although Tom Gilfellon reported on Facebook that Colin passed away on 27th May(about 8 years after his wife, Ray Fisher).

I first heard Colin when John Heydon booked The High Level Ranters for the Herga club and ceilidh back in the 1960s. Colin was a fine musician (and the first person I heard playing Northumbrian pipes) and there are many people much better qualified than I am, especially from the north-east, to pay tribute to his contribution to the British folk world.

I transferred a couple posts into this thread, and will delete the duplicate. --Mod
