Subject: RE: Obit: Brian Dawson (22 Nov 13)
I have been saddened by the number of friends from the folk music world that have passed away in the last couple of years. And now Brian has joined that number. We will all mis this lovely bloke, one of natures gentlemen, and a fine singer/musician/collector to boot. I will always remember his genuine modesty whenever I went to book him for a club or festival that I was running. He would say 'Well, I only sing ditties', and would ask a fee that was ridiculously cheap for an artist of his calibre. There is no-one on the folk scene that I liked better than he, and I know a lot of people. Elaine and I send our condolences to his family. Goodbye,and Thank You for being with us dear Brian. R.I.P.
