Belatedly, condolences to Susan, and thanks for my brief but productive association with Dick, who had the will and perseverance to publish our project, "The Mary Lomax Ballad Book." Sad that Ed Cray, who edited the work, just passed away.

Dear Susan,
I am so sorry for the loss of your life companion, and wish I could be there for the tribute you are holding for him tomorrow. He was one of the people I looked forward to seeing , along with you, at your table filled with fascinating books, especially the series dedicated to a particular song’s history or other scholarly information, and various unexpected recordings. He was a very important part of the texture of the gatherings we all, as individuals created and still create together.
My thoughts will be with you tomorrow,

Helen Engelhardt

It was important to be there and meet people I had never met...and re-meet people I had not seen in ages.... some, like bbc, since that 1999 picture.

EBarnacle & Lady Hillary were a delight... and the only time I had met wsiwyg/Susan and Greg was at a Mudgathering at their place when Dick & Susan were there. Max spoke eloquently, as did Susan of DT, who shared so many years with Dick making the Digital Tradition and amazing resource. Songs were sung in honor of Dick and stories I had never heard were told.
Because Dick & Susan had been regular attendees at the FSGW Getaway, a bunch of us from 'down South' made the trip.

   Such a brief few hours to absorb so many memories & thoughts...

Dick and Carol once graced our stage in Vancouver BC. He told me at the time when I asked him about the DT that he never expected that of all his life's work he'd be remembered for this wonderful creation.

Just tuned in (in time) to find out. Dick was a giant, and I was privileged to meet him once in the early Mudcat days.

We give to a tradition, and then we find that it gives to us, and one of the things it gave to us was Dick Greenhaus.

I study societies that have been sustainable for at least 1,000 years -- and if I was asked what was the one thing they had in common it would be traditions of ancestor worship.

Rest happy, ancestor.

yours ever,

As was said above, expected but a gut-wrenching shock anyway.

It's funny - ALL those reflections above of what Dick taught, gave, shared, made available, served as example - I'd have said all of them as well. Though not necessarily said as well as.

What I've very often remarked to others are things Dick taught me of music and also of how one might live life. Life changing lessons.

My sadness to you, Susan, and to All. And my pleasure at having known the man.

The memorial will be held Saturday afternoon April 6 at our retirement community, Brittany Pointe Estates, in Lansdale PA. We hope the weather will have settled sown by April. I am calling it "Dick Greenhaus: Memories and Music". I hope that a number of you will come to celebrate his life. Lansdale is a Northern suburb of Philadelphia accessible from the Northeast extension of the PA turnpike and SEPTA Regional Rail. I will talk to a local motel for those who will want to stay over night and will arrange a supper on campus that night. There are some extra CDs and a few instruments that need new homes. Let me know if you want to be kept in the loop, including your email addresses.

I thought I'd posted back at the beginning, but I guess not. It's not that I haven't been thinking about the loss to our folk music community.

My heartfelt condolences, Susan. I know Tom (Curmudgeon) and Dick corresponded frequently. I had less direct contact, but I am so very glad that I'd had the opportunity to meet Dick (and you) and be a part of some of those wonderful conversations at the 2005 Getaway.

Tonight, being Episcopalians, we remembered two dear friends and the son of a dear friend at a private Mass at our home in Ohio.

These persons departed this life just as my priest husband Greg retired (and immediately following his retirement) from active parochial ministry. A priest without an altar makes one wherever needed-- today, at our living room dinette while snow and icy rain fell in darkness outside the big picture window that table overlooks.

Our service followed the BCP Order for Burial used at many memorial services in our denomination, with communion-- and with music from unusual sources (since my autoharp is packed). We prayed strength and healing for the bereft, during the music and throughout.

In memory of Leo Pola we hummed along with a YouTube video where he's songleading a rousing song by a mutual friend, in his usual RenFaire garb:
https://youtu.be/kwQAmwn5-N8

In memory of Dick Greenhaus of The Digital Tradition which is hosted at www.mudcat.org, we took a trip down memory lane via a video showing Mudcat folkies including Dick and his partner Susan Friedman. All these Mudcatters typically participated in folkie weekends at our PA rectory:

In memory of Josh Harrigan Logan, we prayed through the Kontakion:

We gave thanks for these lives that touched our own.

This is such sad news. I always enjoyed visiting with Dick at the festivals - Mystic, Old Songs, NEFFA... He always had a recommendation of some CD or book he thought I would like and he always got it right.

He deserves lots of thanks for finally getting Bronson back in print after so many years passed without that valuable resource available to researchers - and all those other collections as well. Dick was one of a kind and he will be missed.

I first met Dick at the very first mudcat gathering at AnnaP's in Seabright New Jersey with Max, Bert, BBC, Allan Clark and a host of others. We couldn't believe that a group of people who had never met each other before could get on so well. Later we met up at BBC's and on many occasions at Old Songs. Dick and Susan then stayed with me in England whenever he went to Whitby, he never asked if he could stay he just knew he could and he was always most welcome. I recall the time when he returned from a trip to Scotland and his rental car was slightly scraped and scratched from driving on narrow roads on the wrong side, of the road, We polished most of the scratches out and it looked almost as good as new when we had finished. He wasn't the most important person in my life but every time someone mentioned his name I smiled and said "He's my Friend"
Rest In Peace Dick.

Dick's parody - Truth About the Roseville Fair was a highlight for me at the FSGW Getaway '06 - https://mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=94554

TRUTH ABOUT ROSEVILLE FAIR (Bill Staines Parody)
------------------------------------------------

There's just one thing
'Bout country music,
If you don't know now
You'll learn right soon;
Anytime
There's a fiddle and a banjo
At least two of them
Will be out of tune.

cho:   Give me your E, said the fiddle to the banjo
       Or your G or D, I just don't care.
       And we sat around while the band was tuning
       All night long, at the Roseville Fair.

Well the mandolin
He never made it
And the bass was off
With a blonde somewhere
And the whole damn thing
It got downgraded
Frome "Roseville Good"
To "Roseville Fair."

It's a fine ole place
For cotton candy
And ice-cold beer
And burgers rare.
You can ride all night
On the painted ponies
But you just can't dance
At the Roseville Fair.

Thank you all for the outpouring of love, condolences, stories, and memories.
Dick has been my stepdad since 1964. I spent many of my early years at folk festivals and always loved the late night sings around camp fires.
Charlie and I were able to take Dick to Mystic this year and it was a lovely time. The best part was finding 3 strapping young lads (and brother Charlie) to hoist Dick up the stairs to do the after show sing in the hall across the street!
Thanks to all the people who made Dick and Susan's work so meaningful. Thanks for sharing all the stories and love.
Life is a journey and death a destination. The "dash" in between is what matters.
Much love to all,

I feel fortunate to have encountered Dick a few times, Getaways, Old Songs, and at the only time he got talked into bringing Camsco's riches to one of the last ever Kent State Folk Festivals. Possibly Dick Swain had something to do with that - I remember being so overwhelmed at the recorded bounty there, even though I didn't know who near enough of them were, that I got Dick Swain to select a few for me to get. I never had enough money to get a quarter of what I wanted from his booth each time.

The value of a person who puts music and songs into the hands of others is immense; that Dick did it in so many different ways makes it impossible to calculate the breadth of his influence. Most sorry for this loss, Susan & Dick's family, but how splendid to be around such a soul for all your years together! He shall not be soon forgotten.

I remember Dick for his great personal kindness, his fiery devotion to the music we all love, for CAMSCO, for so much more. I mourn his passing.

My mentor, my friend, Dick meant a whole lot to me. I'm so sad and so sorry he's gone. Much love to you Susan.
