Vale Dermott Ryder

Back in 1988 Dermott Ryder invited the Roaring Forties to do a live recording in his Ryder Round Folk program at 2MBS-FM and that became the basis of our first shanty album, Hazard Hardship and Damned Little Pay – originally on cassette; then a CD.

Graham MacDonald was at the controls. Dermott died on 3rd March 2015 and his funeral will take place 11:45am Wednesday 11 March 2015 at the Mary Mother of Mercy Chapel, Barnet Avenue, Rookwood Catholic Cemetery. He was 74 years old.

Paul Hemphill has posted the following tribute.

Thanks and RIP Dermott.
