Shocked and saddened to hear that the wonderful Jon Scullard has passed away. It was a rare treat to see the rare man at Celtic Connections back in January... far too fleeting though.

And from Andrew Cronshaw

A shock - I just heard that Jon Scullard has died. Scottish sound engineer, working in the past with Scottish folk bands and for the past many years living and working in Galicia, a key figure in the music there, working with most of the well-known Galician musicians and bands, and house sound engineer and recordist at Galician music's hub, La Casa das Crechas in Santiago de Compostela.

He was always friendly and helpful to me, most recently when I was standing in the dark at the back of a foliada at La Casa das Crechas last year, taking photos; I felt a tap on my shoulder; it was Jon, at the sound desk behind and above me, as always making the informal session sound and look perfect with subtle sound reinforcement and lighting.
