Thread Name: Obit: Stan James of Washington (Nov 2008)
Subject: RE: Obit: Stan James of Washington has died
So, sorry to hear this news. I met Stan via some of the many musical gatherings that have been held by local folk music enthusiasts in and around the Seattle area. What a grand smile he always seemed to have on hand for everyone around him. He had such zeal for singing. His voice was bold and strong. He easily made a huge impression on any song circle when he'd take his turn offering a ballad at the hoots. I'll remember him best for his strength and confident poise during his performances, his deep vocal range and his love of folk music.
