Jack Forbes of Slow Loris

More sad news I’m afraid. Jack Forbes, singer, songwriter (notably of the very well known “Rolling Down the River”) and band member of Slow Loris, one of our most popular festival groups, died on Friday after a short illness. The short sentence above does not do justice to the huge contribution Jack made to the Essex Folk scene and far beyond and to all the various projects he has been involved with during his life. Suffice it to say he was a character, a lovely man and will be hugely missed.
