danensis Obit: Ian Campbell, Birmingham (67* d) RE: Obit: Ian Campbell, Birmingham 16 Dec 12


I just heard about Ian's death on The Last Word. A very sad loss for folk music.

I first encountered the Jug'o'Punch when I was on an International Work Camp at the Midlands Arts Centre in 1967. For the following three years I went down to Digbeth Civic Hall on a Thursday night whenever I was in Birmingham, and often chatted to Dave and Betty.

When I met my wife in 1970 I took her to the club, as she was a great fan of Ian's music, and Ian gave her a floor spot on the strength of my say-so, and he wasn't disappointed.

I knew John Dunkerley well, as his mother was a friend of my mother in Doncaster, and I was one of the first to learn about his intention of leaving the group.
