Subject: OBIT 9th Feb 2016 Roy Harris
From: GUEST,Mike O'Leary-Johns
Date: 09 Feb 16 - 08:55 AM

With Great Sadness I have to Break the News that....
Roy Harris passed away early this Morning .

Roy's health has been poor for some time.
But just recently it had become far worse.
On a personal note Roy and Elaine have been Close
friends of Pat and I for many years.
Our thoughts are with Elaine at this time
and Neil and Anne and Their family.
Roy was enormously proud of his Family.


I first met Roy in the Cardiff Folk Song Club .
To my great fortune it was the first Folk Club I went to.
Roy was a fine singer and made a GREAT contribution to the World of
Folk Songs.
He just Loved Traditional Songs and Music .
He was always ready to help and encourage people who were interested .

Over the years he made countless friends throughout Britain and America............. We will all miss him and his contribution
to The Folk Song World .
I am finding great difficulty writing this and I am beginning to ramble.
I am sure that his friends will be able to put things much better than I.

But we have Lost one of THE VERY BEST ..............
                      Mike

Just picked up this dreadful news a short while ago and I'm still in shock. Roy and I were in our weekly correspondence just a fortnight ago discussing the fortunes of Nottingham Forest and I just sent the latest report to him yesterday. I hope that it was of some comfort to him that Traditions at the Tiger, the folk club he started in Long Eaton in 1991, celebrated its 25th Birthday on Sunday night and he was fondly remembered on that occasion. The encouragement that Roy gave to numerous singers and musicians was immense and those who held him in high regard as a singer are countless. Condolences to Elaine and Neil and family. UREDS.

Roy was a great friend of mine in the 60s We travelled together to various clubs where either he or I were guests. He was a regular at Shotley Bridge folk club in Durham when he carried a guitar case without a guitar, (it carried a change of clothing) but he always said it made him look like a "Folk Singer". There were many occasions, usually an a Sunday late afternoon, when I would get a phone call from him asking me to play some obscure folk club in Scotland or Northumberland because he was stuck on a motorway somewhere unable to get a lift. He never did learn to drive but he didn't need to as he always had many friends who would take him anywhere. My thoughts go out to Elaine and Neil at this sad time.
He was a good bloke.

I was lucky to see Roy several times in the late 70s- early 80s when he still toured in the U.S. He was, as you all know, a top-notch performer and just an all-round good guy.

His standard opening back then (at least over here) was "Black, White, Yellow and Green"... which was guaranteed to get the audience's attention. When he stopped touring, I shamelessly adopted the song and occasionally inflict it on the unprepared. I suspect Roy would approve....

I met Roy so long ago I can't remember when it was or even the circumstances, but loved his singing and the way in which he passed on his love for traditional music. Despite the fact that I was normally singing my own songs he was always wonderfully supportive and helpful. When I came back to live in Cardiff fourteen years ago I found to my delight that Roy was living here too - and again experienced the warmth of his recognition and support for what I was doing.
I am so very sorry to hear of his death. I, too, would like details of his funeral when they are announced.

I'm devastated.

Roy and I have carried on a lively though sporadic email and Mudcat conversation for years. (Started because I live in Nottingham, New Hampshire USA and he's from Nottingham, England.) I think it was the last time he was in the US, he later let me know he'd passed close enough to see the Nottingham sign on the highway, but, alas, we weren't able to get together to meet in person.

This is a very hard loss for me, though not as hard as what Elaine is going through. My heart and sincere condolences go out to her and the family.

I owe Roy so much. I learned everything I know about performing in public from him. Roy picked me up when I was down, pushed me forward when I was lagging behind, and most of all showed me how to love traditional folk music. Roy encouraged me to listen to Pop Maynard, and Phil Tanner. Roy booked a long list of singers at the Loughborough Festival that included Johnny Doughty and Frank Hinchcliffe, and we 'youngsters' got to see the real thing for our selves, for the first time. Roy encouraged me to collect Folk Songs..the list goes on. God rest you Roy. You were one of the greats. We will miss him.

A great singer and a great human being. I first got to know him in the 70s when I brought him to Ireland for some folk club dates. He was a superb performer and an equally lovely house guest - not to mention a passionate Nottingham Forest supporter!

We met up occasionally after that - at Loughborough and when he again played in Belfast (with the late Cyril Tawney).

Folk music has lost a giant. My thoughts are with his family.

Great memories of him raising the rafters of the Pier at an early Cleethorpes Folk Festival...Fathom the Bowl had never sounded better.

He accepted an invitation to come and sing for us at the Bermuda Folk Club...must be almost 40 years ago....I remember it as if it were yesterday....

I heard Roy sing when I was a college student spending a semester in London in 1975. I met him in person in the 2000's when he came to a house concert I was performing with Margaret Nelson and Kate Early in the DC area at Dennis and Judy Cook's house. I got a chance to tell him I'd seen him way back. He was a very nice man and we exchanged some CD's. I recently (last fall) had sent him one of Christmas band recordings because he was talking on Facebook about liking the original version of Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, as opposed to the newer, diva gargled versions. He also sent a kind note about that. May he rest in peace.

He gave us an excellent gig. I have always admired his posts here, in both his Burl & his RoyH personæ. We shall miss him.

Roy was a super bloke. i first saw him about forty five years back at andy Dwyer's club at the prince of wales in Tamworth. The first of many superb evenings being entertained by a great folksinger.

later i knew him as an actor on the set of various tv programmes when Nottingham and Leeds had big tv studios. he was sensible , thoughtful and he had thought out his ideas about folk music very carefully.

i remember one time running him home from location - he was living in Sandiacre at the time, and he seemed pretty tired. he was lamenting the few venues that there were booking him...all i can say is to those clubs...you missed out on a good 'un!

he could really get to the heart of a traditional song. you got an insight into how a hunting song or a shanty would enthuse a company. he could deliver a ballad with the commitment of a Shakespearian actor performing a soliloquy.

he was a great man.
