Subject: RE: Obit: RIP Grant Rule (Pig's Ear) October 2011
Our sunday night sessions at the Kentish Horse and Wheatsheaf will be so much the poorer for the loss of one of the best singers of a folk song I have heard. On the day he died we remarked at the end of the Wheatsheaf session that Pigs Ear had not arrived and we rounded off the night with what, for many of us, is one of Grant's best songs - Cousin Jack - unaware, of course, that he was no longer with us. A massive loss but what a legacy of inspired people has has left.
