Harry Scott, founding father of Penicuik Folk Club, died on January 22 at the age of 88.
Paying tribute Alan Murray from the club said: “Harry was not a large man, in the vertical sense! But he was a giant personality with a laugh to match. He loved a good laugh, a few beers, lots of music and lots of craic.
“He’d been out of the music for a while, as he was in increasingly poor health in recent years.
“I will remember him mostly for his songs, his belly-laugh and tall tales - some of which were probably true.
“Harry was loved by many and will be missed by many.”
Harry Scott’s funeral will take place at Mortonhall today (Thursday) at 1.30pm.
