Can now finally RIP after many many years of keeping us entertained. Good on ya mate :)

Obit: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2016/jun/03/dave-swarbrick-obituary

I think I first heard and saw Swarb play at Cropredy in late 80's and more personally at the Edinburgh Folk Festival Easter '89 with Whippersnapper, if I remember correctly. He just kept on playing thru years of ill health probably brought on by his smoking. He's done remarkably well to reach 75 and definitely deserves a rest now.
I last saw him play live touring with Martin Carthy a few years ago just up the road at the intimate venue of the Junction 2 in Cambridge UK. Thanks for all the music Swarb.

Terry Brain, British 'Trap Door' animator, 60

'Children's' animated cartoon Trap Door was a Saturday morning communal ritual in our student flat back in the early '90s. Not all of us managed to get up for every episode, but it was a wonderfully surreal way to start your weekend.
Thanks to you and Willy Rushdon for making us laugh :)
