In memory of Sean

We have some very sad news indeed for all who have been to FotL. Sean, who was the sound engineer on the mill stage over many years, passed away on Thursday.

His reliability, attention to detail, heart-felt enthusiasm for music and commitment to all projects tying in with his refined taste will be missed, massively.

Sean was not only a fine sound engineer but an extremely talented musician, playing with a number of bands, notably keyboards with The Shelleys (seen here), but – as those who were part of the late night sessions last year will attest – he was also a more than able guitarist, bassist, saxophone player and harmonica player. From the very start of his involvement with FotL, he was also willing to sit in with bands. Here he is performing with Dennis Remme in 2013.

Sean will be hugely missed by the whole FotL team. We all need to assimilate his loss to his family, friends and the many musical allies and partners he made over the years
