Rest in Peace Rónai Lajos (1953 – June 27, 2019). Rónai Lajos was active teaching and playing music, accompanying folk dance ensembles all over Hungary’s Galgamente region (Bag, Aszód, Hévízgyörk). He founded both the Tarisnyás and Fix Stimm bands and dedicated his life to music and folk music. He was a key figure in his area in preserving and keeping local traditional music alive. Printed here is the eulogy by Péter Tibor president of the Bag Folk Arts Association given at the funeral on July 2, 2019 in Hévízgyörk, Hungary.
