Rob Murch replied to thereallyniceman's discussion Terribly Sad News for the Classic Banjo Community
"Such sad news. I’d known Dave for many years and what a lovely down to earth chap he was. Knowledgeable with all things banjo and his enthusiasm was very infectious. Shall miss his ‘ey up Murchie’ at Backwell Rally. Rest easy mate."
