Subject: RE: Obit: Roy Harris, 9th Feb 2016
I have many happy memories from NTMC. It was Roy who taught what it takes to be a professiomal. Three weeks on the road in Germsny in a Morris 1000 van gave ma a great opportunity to know Roy, and listen and learn.
Always encouraging, he surprised me with his knowledge of American old time folk music, not something I expected from a singer of the English tradition.
We sang Fathom the Bowl in remembrance at the "Blackies" on Sunday night.
RIP Roy I shall miss you.Condolences to Elaine and family.
