Chris Drinkwater Posted August 10, 2013 Share Posted August 10, 2013 (edited) The renowned singer and English concertina player Louisa Jo Killen, formerly better known as Louis Killen, following a gender change a few years ago, has died following a battle with cancer. On his return from America, some years ago, I saw and heard her sing several times, the last time being about 4 years ago at the Cumberland Arms, Byker, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, on a singers night, prior to her sex change. Here is a link to an obituary of her written by Heather Wood. http://singout.org/2013/08/10/louisa-jo-louis-killen-passes/ And here's a link to a video of her singing "Go to Sea Once More". http://youtu.be/1P1cBK2NIww Chris Edited August 10, 2013 by Chris Drinkwater Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
