Subject: Obit: Piers Hayman
From: GUEST,Nicole Gardner

Piers Hayman, who some of you may remember, finally lost his fight with cancer at Auckland Hospital in the early hours of 25 September 2011.

He started his musical career in a skiffle group, then formed a duo with Peter Cox in the '50s and performed at folk clubs all over the UK. He moved to the Netherlands in '73 and formed a duo with Dutch guitarist John Kuiper, eventually producing three albums in the late '70s.

He moved to New Zealand in 1982 and made many friends during his varied career, which included: folk singer, artist, art educator, tv and radio host, newspaper columnist, ornithologist and author. His last book was his folk music autobiography, "A few grains of sand," and a CD in late 2010.

Despite taking a break from folk music for several years, he came back into the fold in the last twelve months of his life and performed his final concert at a folk club near Wellington in late July, not that he knew it was his last. He just kept going and going, an inspiration right 'til the end.

We miss you, Piers.

Gosh, I remeber Piers and Pete Cox, both he and Bert Jansch gone, in one fell swoop.
A sad loss for us, and also for both their families.

RIP.

I can't believe that there's nobody else remembers Piers. Was it his misfortune to die at about the same time as Bert Jansch?

I only learned of his death just now. His first album with John Kuiper is still one of my favourites. Saw them in '79 in Groningen, it was great!

I'm glad this thread was refreshed, because I didn't know anything about Piers Hayman. Can somebody tell us about him? Here's the YouTube channel for Piers Hayman and John Kuiper:It's worth a listen.
