He's There In The Distance

Another post, another death to report. This one is personal. A good friend of mine died of lung cancer last night, barely four months after it was first diagnosed.

Amongst his many other fine qualities was a great enthusiasm for life in general and music in particular - the last time I was due to see him was at a Fotheringay reunion gig last month, but unfortunately he wasn't well enough to make it. Two of his main musical passions were Fairport and Family, so these two tracks sort of pick themselves.

RIP Chris. Missing you already.

"Meet On The Ledge" - Fairport Convention

"My Friend The Sun" - Family
