Two more folk to add to the roll today. Mose Scarlett and Don Bilston. Singers and musicians on opposite sides of the Atlantic although plenty will know of Mose as he came across to visit our folk clubs in the UK. Different styles of music but both very entertaining. Mose has videos on You Tube. Don not so much. Mainly cover versions. They both have web presence though.

Both sadly missed.

There are some additions to make to the roll. Bob Gibson (1996), Frazier Patrick "Pat" Henry (2018) and Joe Daly (2019). The roll began back in 2011 and the trawl through Mudcat at the time didn't bring Bob Gibson to the fore. It should have done! You can read about him here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bob_Gibson_(musician)

Pat Henry was a well known Folk musician and organiser in Alaska. You can read about him here: https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/juneauempire/obituary.aspx?pid=190494051

Joe Daly was also a lifetime performer of Folk Music in the US state of New York. You can read about him here: https://thelcn.com/lcn01/video-popular-folk-musician-joe-dady-dies-at-61-20190519
I have included them in the "Those who ought to but haven't" section.

Thanks to Wally and Ebbie for their nudge!

RIP

Peter
