Portrait: Derek Shulman

Derek Victor Shulman was born in 1947, in The Gorbals, Glasgow, Scotland.

I was born in the heart of Glasgow, Scotland, in an area called the Gorbals. From what my brother Phil has told me, it was similar to areas like South Bronx or Watts back in the day. It was an incredibly rough and dangerous area, full of tenements with Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe, Catholics from Ireland, and Protestants from Glasgow all violently fighting for their turf.

Strawberry Bricks Entry: 
Sandy Denny’s reasons for departing Fairport Convention included an outlet for her songwriting, but a reluctance to tour and be away her partner Trevor Lucas were also key. To wit, she formed Fotheringay with Lucas-named after the Fairport song of the same name. He called on former Eclection bandmate and drummer Gerry Conway; former Dantalian’s Chariot bassist Pat Donaldson came from a recommendation by initial guitarist Albert Lee (who was recommended by Richard Thompson!); Lee didn’t work out, and American Jerry Donahue completed the band.
