Brian Dawson

Brian Dawson is widely known and respected, both as a performer and collector of folk material (especially from his home county of Lincolnshire). In his time Brian, as an accomplished musician (accordion and fiddle), has been a member of folk bands such as The Meggies (founders of Grimsby Folk Club back in the 1960s), and Broadside Ceilidh Band, which only recently disbanded. But he also quickly established himself as an equally accomplished solo performer. He has been a regular at the great Whitby Folk Week and has presented some excellent workshops on songs of Lincolnshire, and the singers and folk song collectors including the work of Australian musicologist and composer Percy Grainger.
