GUEST,Mark Gamon Remember Colin Scot? (152* d) RE: Remember Colin Scot? 27 May 09


This thread kinda breaks my heart. If there was one experience that turned me on to folk music, folk clubs, and the whole damn folk ethos, it was seeing Colin Scot at Bridport Folk Festival and later several times at Bishops Stortford Folk Club in the early 70s. Don't ask me for a year: I can't remember. What I do remember is a larger than life performer who had that folk club knack of combining vast reserves of humour with genuine compassionate heart-rending soul. After one gig, he took the time to teach me Analine - can anyone give me further info on that song? I've seen a million 'folk' performers since - many of them brilliant - but it was Scot who gave me the heart to keep playing, and I can't pay him a greater compliment than that. I wish he was still with us.
