Sad, Sad, Sad, News

I'm completely devastated to have to inform you that Anne Neilson has died suddenly. Anne co-founder of the Ballad Workshop,felow member of Stramash and dear friend passed away last night/this morning,

More news when I get it.. Her brother found her dead on the floor when he went to her flat after not getting an answer to his phone calls. She was complaining yesterday of intense pain.

Anne was involved in numerous folk song activities and we all owe her a great debt. More on that later also


I don't now how to cope with this - crying as I write this note. I'm appearing at Girvan FF this weekend and I'll try to sing a song for her there, but how I'll manage I'm not at all sure.

Bye bye dear Anne


Bob Blair

I'm speechless with shock and sadness. Anne was a wonderful singer, a mover and a shaker, and had become a good friend over the last few years. This is a massive blow for Scottish folk song. I'm quite devastated.

This is such terrible news, I'm in shock. To have lost both her and her life long friend Gordeanna in such a short space of time is an awful blow for Scottish tradition. But more importantly it's awful news for her many friends. I can't believe it- not Anne.

I am crying too. Such a lovely person, and all credit to her and Gordeanna for setting up the Glasgow Ballad Workshop, and for the many younger singers they tutored, mentored and encouraged. I had seen her a few times in Stramash and other concerts and workshops but got to know her a wee bit better via the GBW. Always sympathetic to anyone's problems, and just a great person to have known.

Very sorry to hear this terrible news, I remember Anne from the seventies, when Stramash with Adam, Kevin and the Clutha lads used to visit our local pub the Glendale in Strachur.

Poor Anne. It was a privilege to be one of her long time friends. 40 years and more. Her contribution to the folk music scene in Scotland was immense.
Wonderful intellect,I enjoyed her sharp wit and humour. Many of her close friends will be shocked and saddened by this unexpected news.
Hard to take in.
Rest in Peace Annie

Anne was a lifelong close friend to my dad's side of the family and will be sorely missed especially by my Aunt Frances. To quote Frances "She was kindness personified" and so generous with her friendship, time, support and knowledge.

I think Anne posted on mudcat as EKanne?

Her funeral is on Thursday 23rd May at 14.00 at the Linn Crematorium, Glasgow.

There will be an EGM of The Glasgow Ballad Workshop on Sunday 26th May at 13.00 in Avant Garde, King Street Glasgow.

So sad to have lost Ronnie Clark only a couple of years ago, then Gordeanna McCulloch in March and so soon after - Anne Neilson.
Miss them all terribly.

I'm not surprised you miss them, we all do. They were so supportive of aspiring singers which is why I hope the Ballad Workshop feels able to continue. I get there very rarely as I no longer live in Glasgow but I know how important it is.

As Gallus Moll pointed out, the Glasgow Ballad workshop has now lost three of its leading lights. I hope it can carry on - a really valuable initiative.

And I so agree with Kieran Argo's words: 'She was kindness personified and so generous with her friendship, time, support and knowledge.'

I'll be at the funeral so please say hello, pseudonymous Mudcatters above.

To Gallupís Moll

Alison. You should have given some thought before you posted the funeral link. We were in the process of trying to decide whether the link should be posted outside of the Ballad Workshop members. Without thinking you have circumvented that decision..

It could well be that because you have extended the link to a audience wider than Ballad Club members, that it will cause a system crash meaning that no-one or hardly anybody will get access.
Iím not a member of Mudcat so I canít contact admin easily, so I think you should contact Joe Offer or some other admin and ask them to delete your post containing the streaming link

I deleted the post with the address. -Mod

Sorry Bob, thanks moderator (Joe?) I didbt realise the possible consequence. I should've checked.
Apologies.

Not Joe. For future reference, it's never a good idea to post links or anything else shared in a closed group.

So sad to hear the news about Anne.
As well as seeing her compere and hearing her sing at the Glasgow Ballad Workshop, I had the privilege of being in her song class at Glasgow Fiddle Workshop. Her warmth, humanity and passion for music never failed to shine.
She will be much missed.
