Tamworth and the surrounding area is mourning the loss of one of its beloved musicians, Bill Morrissey. You can read about his life in obituaries and remembrances in, among other places, The Boston Globe, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Banjo Hangout and MusicTAP. Scroll down below the second photo to hear some of the songs mentioned in these remembrances.

Bill played in the area often. Here he is at Drylongso Coffee House, a series of wonderful concerts put on by our friends Annie Provenzano and Raetha Stoddard a few years back. And here and here are two songs he played on Annie Provenzano’s final Great Acoustics Radio Show on 93.5 WMWV.
