GUEST,Bruce Michael Baillie Derek Brimstone, a question? (8) Derek Brimstone, a question? 01 Feb 10

This morning I had an unusual email from a chap called Brian Edwards in Vancouver, Canada. I thought one or two of you might be able to help him so here is his message!

"I don't know whether this is a coincidence or a connection. I watched you singing a Derek Brimstone tune on You Tube and of course noted your name. Derek Brimstone's sister married a fellow by the name of Baillie and they lived in Sutton Coldfield. My mother was the house keeper of the Ballies whose name is Lily. The last time I saw Derek was at a party I held in my apartment in Walsall Wood, West Midlands. Derek came along with a friend of mine Terry McCann and Colin Scott. The folk scene in the late 60s early 70s was just fabulous with folk clubs in every town. I heard that McCann had died, don't know of Colin Scotts where abouts and it is so good to know Derek is still out there. Take care and good health
