I've an unconfirmed report that Ray Fisher has died today.

If this is true we've lost one of our best and we're all poorer for it.

Just seen a report of this myself.

A sad day right enough.

One of the best gigs I ever saw was the Fisher Family at Stirling Folk Club's "Terr at the Terraces" about 10 years ago - Ray was just on sparkling form. Her singing was superb as usual but the comedic value of the performance was just priceless too.
If I remember rightly, Raddy has the recording somewhere. Brilliant!!

BBC Radio 4's Last Word has just broadcast a short appreciation of Ray's life.

It'll be on Listen Again.
