Thread Name: Obit: John Wright (UK, Feb 2008)
Subject: RE: Obit: John Wright (UK, Feb 2008)
I got confused about the two John Wright's a few years back.
Lucy Wright who used to play at Gainsborough Folk Club and Faldingworth Live, kep't on talking about her uncles John & Michael Wright and it was quite some time before I realised that the John Wright that she was on about, had no link to the John Wright Band.

I do remember that one of her uncles was a brilliant Jew's Harp player and indeed Lucy learn't to play the Jews Harp from him.

So the answer is that John Wright (Jews Harp) was not the John who sadly passed away.
