Subject: RE: Obit: Brian Dawson (22 Nov 13)
I'm saddened to hear this (via the 'Caistor Memories' group on FB) and my thoughts go to his family... I didn't know him that well (I was a kid then), but he kindled an interest in folk music (especially songs from Lincolnshire) in me that has stayed with me. I rememeber Brian (as a member of "The Broadside" folk group) coming to 'interview' my late mum (Violet Corcoran) at our home in Nettleon about the various folk songs she had learned from my grandad (Ned Mumby). I still have the copy of the LP "The Moon Shone Bright" he gave her and I have sung some of the songs from it at various 'folk pubs' in my travels across the country! I even had the honour of singing The Lincolshire Wedding Song at a friends' wedding reception in Bedfordshire. An all-round nice guy! Rest in Peace.
