Subject: Obit: RIP Grant Rule (Pig's Ear)
I thought there might already be a thread on this but it seems not. I was not a close friend of the Rules but knew them to an extent, so I hope I do not intrude by starting this.
The Rules and their band Pig's Ear (Grant, Sue, Keith, Lynsey and occasional others) have been long-term stalwarts of the Kent and southern UK folk scene with a good number of CDs to their credit as well as the wonderful Pig's Ear mini-festival at Markbeech for the last several years.
I understand that Grant was on his boat and may have been propelled overboard by the boom.
I am sure that all will sympathise with the family and wish them the strength to carry on.
