Kenny Hall, 1923-2013

Laurie Lewis's latest e-newsletter includes the sad news that Kenny Hall (left; photo reproduced from the newsletter) has died - on 18 September, just under a month short of his 90th birthday.

Kenny was a unique musician and a pillar of old-time music on the west coast of the USA, and will be remembered by many over here for his appearances in Ireland with his Sweets Mill String Band in the 1970s. An obituary can be found on the Sing Out! website, and another through a link on the Laurie Lewis newsletter, where there are also videos of Kenny in action, together with Laurie's personal memories.
