Anybody know if there are any recordings of him?

Has your friend made contact with Brian Dawson, repository of vast amounts of Lincolnshire folk knowledge?

It is difficult to get Brian by phone as he doesn't answer. Best way to talk with Brian is at a gig.
However thanks for the tip. Could be useful if nobody can help on Mudcat.
