Thread Name: Remember Colin Scot?
Subject: RE: Remember Colin Scot?
I was one of the organisers and resident group at The Rovers Folk Club in Bishop's Stortford where Scotty was one of our regular guest artists. I have wonderful memories of terrific evenings there. Often, afterward a group of us would go back to Mac's (one of our floor singers and the current organiser of StortFolk - the successor to our club). One night Scotty came back with us and he was playing tracks from his new LP - 'Just Another Clown'. I remember hearing 'A Simple Song' for the first time that evening through a haze of alcohol and cigarette smoke... a very moving experience and a warm memory. I am glad to say that my son (now in his mid-30s) has inherited my taste in music and only a few nights ago I found him listening to that very LP (yes, on vinyl!). So Scotty - we all loved you and you live on in our memories.
