Grant sadly died of an heart attack a couple of days ago. He was a clever song writer, a great guitarist, and an all round good bloke.
He used to attend our annual music weekends, and said that he wouldn't miss this trip to Scotland each year, and regarded it as an holiday.
I have spent many happy hours in his company and he will be much missed by myself and many others.
The older UK members may remember him as a regular on That's Life.

He had been working for the past couple of decades with Hilary Spencer, as the duo Quicksilver. I met him on a few occasions, and each time was struck by his musicianship, humour, and warmth. Because of his warmth and friendliness I felt I knew him better than I actually did, and I am very sad to hear of his passing. Much sympathy to Hilary, and to his wife and family, and all who knew him well. The great Session in the Sky has gained another shining star, to our loss.

Bromsgrove Folk Festival was always glad to welcome Grant & Hilary, as we did this year.
I had the honour MC-ing his set just 3 weeks ago, which I believe was his last gig performance.
Echoing the above, he was a lovely warm gent with great personality and will be missed by us all.

"As the good Lord gazed down on the Dun Cow that night,
He allowed himself one sublime smirk…
Then he gently doused Phoebus’s proud amber light
And said ‘Night, night Grant Baynham. Good work."

Grant Baynham is well-known for "The Wine Song" (link above). Any other Grant Baynham songs we should know about?

You Tube has several songs of his available, he can also be heard singing as part of the group Quicksilver well worth a listen. Just type in the required letters in the box at the top, and you will be amply rewarded.

Brian Peters has posted a great instrumental track of Grant and himself playing “The Dallas Rag” on YouTube too.
I enjoyed seeing Grant in action on several occasions, both solo performances and with Hilary.
