Subject: Brian Dawson
From: Wheatman
Date: 12 Nov 13 - 11:39 AM

I tried to post this morning but it seems mud cat does not like me. The following is an extract from a mail which popped into my in box:-

"I afraid I am the bearer of some unhappy news regarding Brian Dawson. We have had a phone call from his nephew this evening to say that Brian is in intensive care at Scunthorpe General Hospital after collapsing with a heart attack whilst at a folk event in Scunthorpe yesterday."

I did not know Brian very well but it was always a pleasure to be in his company. My thoughts are with his family.

Gan canny brian (kell)

A huge shock when I received the news at work yesterday morning especially as he had been with us at Tigerfolk, Long Eaton on Sunday 3rd to see Len Graham and to entertain us from the floor (with a Lincolnshire dialect poem for a change). We were all looking forward to seeing him on Sunday night at Nottingham's Poppy Folk Club. All of us at Tigerfolk wish him well for a full recovery and hope to be back in his company soon.

Heard the bad news yesterday from Brian's sister via Mudcatter 'Sooz'. A shock, although I have to say I thought Brian didn't look well when I saw him last Thursday at the monthly '600 Whiskies' folk event at The George in Leadenham.

Brian is a wonderful collector, singer and accordionist, and his knowledge of Lincolnshire songs and tunes is truly encyclopaedic. I wish him a full and speedy recovery, and look forward to seeing and hearing him again, hopefully in the not-too-distant future.

Frank Kelly has set up a conversation group on Facebook to keep people in touch with information about Brian's condition, and the latest news received from the family which he reported earlier this evening was as follows:
"Brian remains very critically ill in ICU, and has yet to regain consciousness. He was taken off sedation but there was no response. The Doctors can give no indication of prognosis at the moment."

Apparently the hospital do not recommend sending cards as Brian is in ICU and cards can prove a dust and germ trap.

Frank also stated "I've proffered the love, good wishes and support of the huge community of people who love Brian, and she is clearly moved by the extent of people's concern from across the country."

Just keeping my fingers crossed for him.

Morning all, I'm afraid that it is with great sadness that I must report that Brian remains unconscious and critical in Scunthorpe General since collapsing on the 9th November with a heart attack.
Thanks for all the ongoing support and best wishes from the folk community. I'm sure Brian would loathe being in hospital but he's in safe hands.
