Farewell to a Friend

We were saddened to learn of the death of Paul Rowden, a remarkable traditional musician who played several times at the market with his friends last season. To quote from the Saturday, July 19, 2008, market blog post:
When Paul Rowden says he'll bring a few friends to play at the market, he means it. As you can see from the picture about 15 accomplished musicians played throughout the Saturday market today, having such a good time that they continued playing almost an hour past the advertised time. It was a real treat for all of us.
He will be missed.
