John Mitchell

On Friday 5 September Sharon Loughrin posted this tribute to a remarkable man on her Facebook page:

Sad news that our bluegrass family has lost a great character this morning. John Mitchell was the embodiment of the phrase 'a man of many talents', not only playing but making instruments, wood carving, writing poetry (the most beautiful handwriting I've ever seen), the spookiest of card tricks!! - the list goes on. We'll treasure the items he gifted us and the memories of the craic with him in The Red Room, Cookstown; our only regret is that we only knew him for a few short years. Peace at last for John after a long fight.
