Thread Name: Obit: John Morris Rankin Dead (Jan 2000)
Subject: RE: John Morris Rankin Dead
I was so sorry to hear of John Morris Rankin's death. Margaret Nelson, my singing partner, and I met him, and the rest of the Rankin's, when we were playing at the 1991 Owen Sound Summerfolk Festival. We were doing a workshop on Celtic music with them and were so impressed by how nice and gracious they all were. I'll never forget the fine set of Gaelic songs they performed there and John's great piano and fiddle playing. This is just os sad.
