roopoo Who are you related to? Any Musicians? (103* d) RE: Who are you related to? Any Musicians? 07 Apr 01


Louisa - I met your dad on a few occasions and he was my partner for the night at a Whitby Spa ceilidh some years ago. Remember Eleanor from PGL, when you were about 15 or 16? I'm her mum. I was sad to hear of his death last year, because he was such a delightful man.

On the related to musicians bit: well, my 4th cousin was a principal singer in the English National Opera Company (John Brecknock - lyrical tenor). I saw him do the lead in "La Belle Helene" at the Coliseum in London once, and he used to be on radio from time to time. (Friday Night is Music Night on Radio 2). I also have a video of him singing the lead in "La Traviata", which went out on TV in the late 1970s. He lives in Spain now and does charity concerts, I believe. His great-grandma and my great grandma were sisters! Of course, anybody who has heard me sing knows that I get my voice from the OTHER side of the family!
