Wallace Lockhart R.I.P.
I have just heard that my friend, musician and author Wallace Lockhart has lost his fight with cancer. I first met Wallace when he attended one of my classes way back when; he was always positive and generous, and it was a delight when we met again more recently when he got to know my father.Wallace was a member of The Quern, a Linlithgow-based group who performed their Scottish-themed shows all over the world. He played concertina and fiddle, and wrote numerous books on Scottish music and culture. Latterly he finished his Scottish-themed novel, and I tried to persuade him to publish it, but his illness got in the way.
