Subject: RE: Remember Les Cousins, in London's Soho?
AND Frank McConnell, names from my Richmond days.
Anybody have any information on Frank? He originally hailed from Felling on Tyne and I met him in the middle sixties as he was a mate of Terry Kelly who was a bandmate of mine and who now plays around the Newark area. Although Frank was very much of the contemporary folk scene i.e. Hanging Lamp etc whenever he was back in the North East he would hang out with us ultra traddies as a diversion from "the humourless south" as he put it. I stayed at his flat in Hendon back in 1969 and I think that I only saw him a couple more times after that.
