Subject: Obit: what happened to Shag Connor?
I have become acquainted with the music of Shag Connor and the Carrot Crunchers and enjoy this West country (England) group very much. I have recently come across a reference to Shag's death, and I would like details as to what happened to him. Like Adge Cutler of the Wurzels, the leader of the Carrot Crunchers was quite a character and his music, at least to these Missouri ears,was certainly different from the usual English folk music of, say, the Copper family. Still,it was rooted in folk with perhapse a dash of music hall thrown in. If you are not acquainted with Shag's music, I recommend it, especially the album "Furzlin"---is that a naughty word?
