Thread Name: Obit: John Wright (UK, Feb 2008)
Subject: RE: Obit: John Wright (UK, Feb 2008)
Art, you're thinking of a different John Wright. The one you and PMB are talking about has lived in France for years, was a great singer, Jew's harp player, fiddler, and in the 1980s and 90s was a member of the Breton Sea Shanty group Cabestan. His wife was indeed Catherine Perrier.

I don't know whether the John Wright who moved to France is still with us, but I have no reason to think he's not. He's definitely a different man from the John Wright who this thread was about.

Very sad to hear it nonetheless. Never got to see the late John Wright live, but I have a couple of CDs he's on....
