Thread Name: Obit: Stan James of Washington (Nov 2008)
Subject: RE: Obit: Stan James of Washington has died
Oh, my. I just got the news yesterday, and am feeling the loss. When I began collecting songs of the Northwest in the 70's, Stan was one of the first people I was directed to. I loved the song circles with John Dwyer, Bob Nelson, John and Sally Ashford, Don Firth, Walt Robertson and so many others who so freely shared their songs and their knowledge, and made me feel so welcome. Stan was something special. That smile! And that voice! I'm grateful to have known him, and grateful for all I learned from him. We'll carry it on.
