Subject: RE: 2018 Obit: Paul Marsh
This is terrible news. Paul and I collaborated for many years over Hampshire folk songs and tunes and played together on occasions. I always regarded him as a very under-rated folklorist as he was someone who steeped himself in the tradition and learnt most of his songs and tunes straight from performing with the 'old boys'.

He accumulated a large archive of audio and video recordings. I hope that he made arrangements for this body of work to be preserved.

A great loss, I will miss our friendly chats and his soft Hampshire burr.

Condolences to Paddi. I will send her a card.
