Rest in Peace Alan Jabbour
Lisa, your impression of Alan is correct. His contribution to preserving and disseminating folk music; especially fiddle tunes, is tremendous. We owe him a great debt of gratitude for his hard and enduring work in this field. He will missed by family, friends, and colleagues. Rest in peace, Alan.

Alan was not only a wonderful fiddler, but he helped to preserve and bring deserved attention to the rich tune repertoire of Henry Reed. From watching him at a music camp, my impression was that Alan was not only a fine musician, but a real gentleman as well.
