Thread Name: 2017 Obit: Keith Rule (Croydon Folksong Club)
Subject: Obit: Keith Rule
I am afraid that Keith Rule passed away on 4th September 2017. Keith came up through the Croydon Folksong Club and sang with his brother, Grant, and his Sister-in-law Sue in various groups including 'Hamfisted" and "Pig's Ear"; both groups becoming well-known in the south of England and beyond. He was also an excellent writer of songs, many of them featuring on the group's CDs.
As a mainstay of the "Pig's Ear Folk Ale" he was charged with looking after the performers and the running order. This was a task akin to herding cats, but he went about it with his usual good humour and common sense. I'm sure many people will have stories about him. He was that sort of character. Farewell "Keef" it was an honour to know you.
