Thread Name: Obit: Roy Palmer (1932-2015)
Subject: RE: 2015 Obit: Roy Palmer
What a sad loss! I have 20 of his books and consult them regularly. I have corresponded with Roy for many years and have contributed songs to his anthologies but only met him sporadically at TSF meetings and conferences. He was always willing to share his knowledge and his prolific output inspired a whole generation of researchers. His relating of folk song to printed sources inspired my own work in this field.

Thank-you, Roy!
