Judy Dyble, the folk singer known for her work with Fairport
Convention
, has died aged 71.

The singer died earlier today (July 12) after suffering from a
long-term illness, as confirmed by her publicist.

“It is with great sadness that we announce that English
singer-songwriter Judy Dyble passed away on 12th July 2020
following a long illness borne with great courage,” a press
release said.

“We wish to express our deepest sympathies to Judy’s family,
friends and many associates from her musical career at this
time.

“Judy’s family would like to thank her fans for their
messages and good wishes on social media over the last few weeks,
but at this time ask that they avoid contacting them for now as
they would just like some quiet time.”

Rising to prominence in the 1960s, most notably as a founding
member of Fairport Convention and vocalist with cult band Trader
Horne, Dyble largely withdrew from the music scene in the early
1970s to concentrate on her family before being invited back to
perform with Fairport Convention in 1997 for the 30th anniversary
reunion at Cropredy.

In 2017, Dyble appeared as a guest artist on Big Big Train’s
‘The Ivy Gate’, a song which featured on the progressive rock
band’s 10th studio album ‘Grimspound’.

She went on toform a close working relationship with Big Big
Train’s multi-instrumentalist frontman David Longdon. Together
they will release their album ‘Between A Breath And A Breath’
on September 25.

“Judy and I became friends during the writing and making of
this album,†Longdon said in a statement. “Along the way, there
was much laughter and joy – but also challenging moments. She was
a woman of a certain age and she wrote articulately and
unflinchingly about the autumn phase of her life.â€

He added: “She dealt with her illness with incredible courage
and fortitude. She suspected this album was her swan song and she
gave it her all. Judy reassured me that she’d had a great life.
Which indeed she did. And I will miss her greatly.â€

Two songs from the album’s recording sessions –
‘Crossbones’ and ‘The Daguerreotype’ – won’t feature on
the final retail version. They will, however, be released in the
autumn as a tribute to Dyble via Bandcamp.

In accordance with Dyble’s request, the songs will be made
available as free downloads, with listeners being encouraged to
make a donation to her chosen charity, the Barley Greyhound
Sanctuary
.

King Crimson paid tribute to Dyble, writing: “Vocalist Judy
Dyble’s death has been announced today. Briefly a member of
Giles, Giles & Fripp in the summer of 1968, Judy recorded the
first version of KC’s I Talk To The Wind.â€

“She was just instantly one of the loveliest people you could
ever meet, and managed to achieve the near impossible in making
records in recent years that were at least as good as her old ones.
She’ll be missed,†Hand Of Glory tweeted.

Very saddened to hear of the
passing of Judy Dyble. A lovely person by all accounts. Seen here
on the reverse of Fairport’s first album. I’ll be listening to both
this and the Trader Horne LP later.
It was great to see the blossoming of her career in more recent
years. pic.twitter.com/l0gzBOrxLS

It was an unbelievable honour
and a pleasure to work with Judy Dyble on Summer Dancing. We
sometimes talked about making more music together, and I’m
heartbroken that we now never will. An amazing woman who enriched
the lives of everyone who met her, or heard her sing.

I knew Judy Dyble (“Jude”)
from our interactions on the Fairport Convention Talk Awhile forum.
She was so friendly, upbeat, kind, fun, compassionate, talented,
level-headed, and so many other things. This world is poorer for
her leaving us. pic.twitter.com/KCr8b63veT

My lovely friend Judy Dyble
@judydyble
has passed away. I’ve had a good cry already. It was such a
privilege to work with her, play on stage, visit her home and dogs
and go shopping for shaving mugs and penguins. I was promsing her a
visit post lockdown. Heartbroken. pic.twitter.com/vI856yWEVp
