Harry Prigg



Harry was a long standing member friend and Trustee of Llantrisant Folk Club. A merchant seaman all his life, Harry died in July 1997, aged just 47, while serving on board ship in the Carribbean.

With his nautical background, Harry's love was of course the shanty, but this was by no means an exclusive love - he enjoyed a wide variety of song and poetry, from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Harry was as easily moved to tears of joy as to tears of sadness, he will be remembered for his sheer love of life.
