What a shock...I join my buddies John, Bill and Paul in feeling helpless....tough to be so far away when something like this happens...
Brian has been an inspiration to me for 45 years, very generous with his music and humor since we first met....my best wishes for a speedy recovery Brian!....and all the love I can muster coming at you from the far west....
Pete Sumner,San Francisco.

Thank you for all the kind messages received regarding Brian's health. Brian does remain critically ill though is in good hands at Scunthorpe General Hospital intensive care where he has been since Saturday night. I'll try and post occasional updates during the next few days to keep everyone informed. At the moment we can but hope.
My personal e-mail address is lindumboy@gmail.com if anyone wishes to get in touch.
Richard.

I don't know any more details than have already been posted here, but ,as a long-time friend and musical associate of Brian's ,the news has hit me hard - I've let Bill Meek and Paul Bellamy know(fellow-members of the Broadside Band)and we're just waiting for further news and feeling pretty helpless. . Just keep those waves of love coming in for t'owd Lincolnshire Lad. . .

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.

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.

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.

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)
