Subject: RE: Obit: Roy Palmer (26 Feb 2015)
Big loss, spoke to him a couple of times at Lancaster Festival. Once introduced a song to which a put my own tune to a text-only version, and went on to mention that some years later I saw another version which Roy had collected, with the tune, and that I still preferred my version - not knowing that Roy was in the second row of the audience. He did take it in very good humour, even though I was acutely embarrassed! The next year when I spoke to Roy, he told me how he came bout the song. Great bloke...
