Hi folks,

I've been lurking on this list for ages, but thought you all might
want to know that the wonderful fiddler and composer Bert Murray of
Aberdeen passed away on Monday. I used his tunes in many dance sets,
and was fortunate to have him as friend and mentor, and I wasn't
alone. Bert encouraged many musicians and shared his music generously
with so many people! He connected with the young folks especially,
but I remember reports of him playing the fiddle "for the old folks"
- some younger than he was - in the hospital while he was a patient
there himself. The world has lost a truly wonderful, good and very
talented person.
