Anne Feeney dead at 69 from COVID.

A deadpooling favourite from the past.

Edit: DDP pick 2011, 2012 and 2013.

 

A real shame.  Anne Feeney was just great, a fine songwriter with a keen social conscience, coupled with an ability not to take herself too seriously.

 

Even my children liked one of her songs.

Worth noting that Scottish folk singer Jock Duncan is still alive. Turning 96 next year.

I don't think he's on the radar for many due to the lack of Wikipedia page but certainly notable and likely to obit.

Picked in the DDP about a decade ago. I assumed he had died, but apparently not.

Scottish folk singer Jock Duncan died in Dundee on March 25th, aged 95.

Daily Record
Press and Journal.
BBC Scotland also ran a tribute to him on their travelling folk show.

@msc @gcreptile, a former DDP pick. 

Should've taken my own advice and picked him...

Another Belinda Sykes update, proving that she is definitely on the clock, but it's a somewhat slower clock. Still a good bet for a latter half of the year hit though:

Eddy Detroit, most notable for his collaboration with Avant-Folk greats Sun City Girls, has killed himself on June 15 by leaping from atop the 17-story Fellowship Towers, a subsidized apartment building in central Phoenix where he’d been living. He was 68.
