Very brief details came in a phone call yesterday evening from Anne Parfitt-King, who had been contacted by John's brother in Essex.

John was a stalwart of Sussex folk clubs and ceilidhs in the 1960s and 70s. He played English concertina and wrote a chronology of the Lewes Arms pub.

He died in a nursing home in Peacehaven on Friday 8th. January 2010 aged 81. The funeral will be at the crematorium nearest to Horsham, but the date and time have not yet been fixed.

Please pass the news to anyone who knew John.

Tina Smith writes on Facebook:

Some of you may remember John Magill, who used to be a regular at all the local folk clubs & was also a member of the Chanctonbury Ring Morris Men. I heard the sad news that he died last week . His funeral is at 12 noon on the 27th January at the Surrey and Sussex Crematorium, Crawley RH10 3NK. His brother is hoping that maybe a member of the Chantonburys could say a few words at the funeral, as he was apparantly unaware of John's involvement in the folk world and would like this area of his life to be remembered at the service.
