Subject: RE: Obit: Roy Bailey (1935-2018)
I did a floor set at a Folk Club in Sheffield many years ago and Roy was there. I still credit him with convincing me that night to concentrate on interpreting traditional songs as it can be fascinating and more fun that trying to write them.

This was after a bit of a bar debate over political songs...

I hope his wish for “freedom peacefully” came to fruition.
