Subject: Obit: Matt Armour - RIP
From: The Admiral
Date: 09 Feb 09 - 01:10 PM

Sad news, I've just received the following from John New of the Great kNight Folk Club Northampton....

Dear Friends
It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that our friend Matt Armour passed away
this morning.

Matt had been ill for some time and had been undergoing tests for a serious illness.
I have been told that he died suddenly, so it is some small mercy that Matt did not have months of suffering.

Those who knew Matt recognised him as a giant on the local Folk scene and he was one of my mentors in the early days of the Great kNight Folk Club. It was always good to see him and hear his music - and his big hearty laugh!
My poor words are not enough - I shall miss the Big Man!

As soon as I know of any funeral arrangements, I will let you know.

Our thoughts go out to Jane and his family.

Regards
John
The Great kNight Folk Club, Northampton.

OH NO! I am so sorry to hear this - one of the great lights of the folk scene has gone out. I have very many happy memories of his club and his warmth and humour - including a freezing snow-bound New Year's Eve when he went out in the winter weather in a kilt with the bare legs, which didn't stop him dancing all night. He'll be in some good musical company up there in Heaven. And he will live on down here through the beautiful songs he wrote. Generations of Change is sung a lot in these parts. Now his season has turned too.

Going to pour a drink now and raise a parting glass to Matt. There's no face-icon sad enough.

We'll walk through the fields that my father once tilled
Talk to the old men who once sailed with me
Man it's been awfully good, I've shown them all I could
Of the past and the present, what the future might be

My goodness. You think they'll be there forever, don't you?

Matt took his place at the very heart of the UK folk scene; he was the ubiquitous soul of thing as far as I'm concerned. I will cherish happy memories of a thousand singarounds at the Durham Folk Party and a late night chat outside the New Boston in Fleetwood at the Fylde last year (even as 4Square were dropping jaws in the cabaret). A dear old friend & a fine singer, songwriter and facilitator par excellence.

We will continue with his name writ deep in our hearts.

Jane, you are in our thoughts.

Sean and Rachel.

Don't know what to say - Matt and Jane have both been very kind to Sylvia and I over the years and we've shared many a gig too. As Barbara says, Scarborough Sea Fest will be a very different experience this year losing a main fixture like Matt. He'll not be forgotten though - so many songs, so many memories. Very, very sad.

My condolences to Jane and the rest of his family. The man was a legend. RIP Matt.

Matt was a welcome part of the Durham City Folk Festival and its successor Durham Folk Party, not only that but he was a friend for those 38 years. I remember him after Colin and Es Ryder and myself had performed at The Stables when we got back to Armour Towers taking the top off a bottle of whisky and throwing it into the waste bin with the cry "The next thing in there will be the bottle" and it was. I will raise a glass in his honour tonight "Farewell old friend"
God bless you, Jane

Though we both ended up making English folk music the center of our lives, I only knew and admired his work from afar in the US. I knew him well when I was a teenager and we both played rugby for Bletchley RFC. if the energy and passion he displayed in that arena was transferred to folk music, the love and affection I hear voiced by friends on this forum is full understandable and the loss a bitter one. I send love, condolences and best wishes to Matt's family and friends.

A wee session

"I came into your company an ordinary man
And the first thing I encountered was your outstretched hand
When you said if you're a singer, then your well welcome here
And through the years you've all become so dear

But I'am glad that I have known you
Since the time that I was young
The stories that we've shared
And the countless songs we've sung
So if one day I'm missing here as missing I shall be
Just raise a glass & sing an old old song for me."

Matt Armour

RIP Matt

This is sad news. I first came across Matt when I moved to Woburn Sands in the late 70's. He was a bit of a 'godfather' in the North Bucks Folk scene then and I don't think he was keen at first on a young upstart like me coming in rippling the waters. I started a Folk Club in Aspley Guise called the Hogsty, Matt ran the Songloft in Stoney Stratford and Drummond Davidson ran the club at Whittlebury we were all Scotsmen in fact the late great Hamish Imlach called us the 'Scotia Nostra'. I think there ended up a bit of mutual respect and the last time I saw him at Towersey he gave me a fine welcome. A fine songwriter and a 'big man' lost to the scene.

These are the sad years, as one by one old friends leave us. There will be more sad departures in times to come. But there will only be one Matt Armour, and those who knew him were lucky. My condolences, jane.

Like Ross Campbell, I knew Matt primarily through our involvements in Fylde Festival. Also Lancaster Maritime Fest. sessions too. A gentle, generous and kindly man, I don't think I ever saw him ruffled, and as an MC and singer, his persona immediately put anyone at their ease. Like all the finest writers, he knew that the best way to make a point was softly but in conjunction with a big stick.
Bless him.

I didn't know Matt but I met him at a folk club in Kirkaldy back in 1990. I was scheduled to do a gig there but the promoter had quit and moved to Ireland without telling anyone, so her replacement hired Ian MacIntosh for my slot.(They paid my fee anyway)
Matt sang a song about girls of Reykjavik..."how can I lay her from 200 miles"...
He got a lot of hoots of disapproval for that one, but I got the feeling that he was just being teased and that they were actually quite fond of him.

It seems that Matt has always been an integral part of my life and I was lucky enough to play with him in both the the "Gaberlunzies", and "The Elastic Band" for more years than I care to remember. Since we moved to Australia 8 years ago, our contact was less, but our friendship never faltered. It was Matt who took a young, nervous singer & player & encouraged him to "get up & bl...y well sing!", and changed my life. I'll miss you mate, Mary & I send our condolences & love to Jane.
