GUEST,Greycap Origins: Patriot Game (60* d) RE: Origins: Patriot Game 20 Apr 08


As a side issue, I had the privilege of being Dominic Behan's house guest for a week, together with my pal, the late Dave Brady, back in 1962 when we we both aspiring singers in London. We had been sleeping in Dave's car in Hyde Park due to financial caution (spend less on sleeping comfort, more on beer).
This kind and talented man met us at the Singer's Club, apparently thought we had some kinda potential, offered us house room for the week, great hospitality, and introduced us to some fine singers, Nigel Denver, Ramblin' Jack Elliot, Martin Carthy, etc.
I understood him to be the author of 'Patriot Game', not Brendan.
He taught us both great songs, as did Nigel Denver, which I still sing today. Where is Nigel, anyone know?
He was a very nice man, a kind man to two aspiring singers, I can say no more, I miss him.
