Subject: RE: Obit: Brian Dawson (22 Nov 13)
Firstly, my condolonces to Brain's family in these dark days.

I first met Brian when he played with the Broadside at the legendary Grimsby Folk club at the Lifeboat & Dolphin hotels in Cleethorpes. He performed at the Louth folk club several times during my stewardship of it in the mid -seventies. Always a kind word, always encouraging, an absolute gentleman.

Musically, like many others, I was helped and encouraged by Brian when he used to lead the musicians at Plowgild folk dance club that Malcolm & Penny Hatton used to organise. Brians leadership, playing and coaching were inspirational back then.

One of the most genuine people it has been my privilidge to meet and perform with has passed from us and we are much the poorer at his passing.

RIP old friend.
