It will be ten years on 7th February since John Wright passed, We asa family still play at least one album a week & miss the pleasure of seeing & hearing this wonderful singer.
Memories of him singing early one January morning in our garden & helping our daughter with information for her GCSE music project as well as all the singer/songwriters he introduced us to will always be with us.
My Barbra & the family celebrate is memory knowing the wider John Wright family is still thinking of them all.

Funny that, I was just thinking about the same "anniversary" myself a couple of days ago. Great singer, sadly missed.

Indeed!
There are some beautiful song clips on YouTube, my faves perhaps being :

Hold On
Down Too Deep
Family
You'll Never Be the Sun
Queen of Argyle
Dumbarton's Drums

But there's oh so many : a Singer's Singer and a really fabulous Band.

Also this 51 min documentary, which my coffee break will be spent experiencing today!

I had managed to get a couple of his recordings way back when, but I sure wish I'd had the chance to see this beautiful man live.

ENJOY!

He was a marvelous interpreter of songs and I have so many favourites it'd take too long to list them. Saw him several times when we were in the UK and on one memorable occasion I saw him in a pub session with Mundy and Turner at the Stonehaven festival near Aberdeen around 2003. Wonderful memories - much like some of my memories of you and dear old Lawls!

Saw him many times over the years: and earlier albums are on cassette! He had a knack of picking good songs that suited his style, and also having some great musicians in his band, Kenny Speirs, Stuart McHardy, Pete Abbott and others, who have to some extent carried on his music in their own way, as well as being very successful in their own right.

Thanks Gecko!
45 months since his passing, yet I still have moments of "expecting" him to walk in the door :(
He filled the room when alive and I think still does from t'other side.

John Wright probably does the same!

Pease note that we have obituary threads for two John Wrights. One died in 2008, and the other in 2013. Which one led the John Wright Band?
Those who knew them, could you tell us about each of them? It appears that both of them were well-loved.

True! Though this is perhaps best left to folks more knowledgeable than me, BUT! I can say that THIS John Wright :

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hd433MSORWs
who performed with Catherine Perrier,

is not the subject of this thread nor of the "John Wright Band"!!

I can't believe it is ten years since we lost him, an amazingly talented and sensitive singer, every song carefully chosen and sensitively shared. We were so privileged to have known him, heard him and the band. Sorely missed.
