Don Firth (1931-2015)

Don Firth passed away in Seattle, Washington on Friday morning, September 4, 2015. He was a pillar of the folk music community of the Pacific Northwest since the early 1950's, and a founding member of the Pacific Northwest Folklore Society in 1953. He was unique and will be greatly missed. Here is a link to a recent article about Don, and a video of Don singing "Three Raven" at Bob Nelson-Don Firth Reunion Concert on Oct 14, 2007. A memorial service will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, October 10, 2015 at Central Lutheran Church, 1700 11th Avenue (one block north of Pine on Capitol Hill) in Seattle.
