John Watt R.I.P.

Just read this sad news elsewhere...

BGM writes

"I'm very sorry to have to let 'stompers know that arch-Fifer John Watt passed away peacefully in Perth Royal Infirmary in the early hours of this morning.
John was involved in starting the Howff folk club in Dunfermline, one of Scotland's very first folk clubs. He was a founder member of The Great Fife Road Show, and well known for his duo work with Davey Stewart, and for his many compositions, the best known of which is probably 'the Kelty Clippie'.

John is scheduled for inclusion in the Scots Traditional Music Hall of Fame at this year's Scots Trad Awards.

Creeping Jesus

Fife's no longer got everything.

He was a character. Hat tipped.
