The former editorial board of Taplas magazine are saddened to announce the death of editor Keith Hudson on 27 June 2015.

Keith had been in ill-health for many years, and had spent time in and out of hospital. He founded Taplas – billed as the Voice of Folk In Wales and the Borders – in 1982 to replace the defunct South Wales Folk News. The magazine ran bi-monthly for 32 years, initially on paper and in the last two years as a pdf, and was regarded as a powerhouse of information. Keith held the post of editor from 1982-2007, when ill-health intervened, and took up the reigns again in 2011. He was also an accomplished photographer, illustrating many Taplas articles with his own pictures.

The former editorial board would like to express our sympathy with his family at his loss. While we are unaware of any official charity nominated in his memory, should anyone wish to make a donation we would suggest Diabetes UK. For further information and obituary information for the folk music scene, please contact Iain Campbell on Iain.campbell@ntlworld.com.

Published bi-monthly, Taplas the only means of keeping in touch with Wales' vibrant folk and traditional music scene.

Each issue contains the latest news & listings, stimulating features and a comprehensive review section.

Taplas' annual Festival Guide appears as a supplement to the April/May edition.

In short, Taplas is essential reading for all with an interest in folk and traditional music.
