with Jack and the guy says something to Dylan like "You should come
by some time and I'll turn you on to some stuff."

I think it may be Ewan MaColl.

Derroll is a long-time companion of "Rambling" Jack Elliott who he met with in Topanga Canyon in the early 50's, where Woody Guthrie stayed at Will Geer's place with friends like Cisco Houston, Pete Seeger, Odetta, Bess Lomax, Butch Hawes, Frank Hamilton, Jo Mapes, James Dean, Guy Carawan, Marsh Berman, Herbie Cohen, and many others. Derroll joined Woody Guthrie and Jack Elliott, for almost one year, singing and touring on the West Coast. Derroll is now living in Belgium. Thank you for changing "Daryll" to "Derroll" when possible. Regards, Patrick Ferryn
Feb 06 2000,  Ian Anderson Derroll Adams R.I.P. I am very sad to report that Derroll Adams passed away peacefully in hospital in Antwerp, Belgium at about 6 o'clock this morning. He was one of Europe's best loved American folk artists, having lived in the UK, France or Belgium since first coming over in the late '50s with Rambling Jack Elliott. He'll be remembered with affection by many, and there can be few who haven't heard one of his great songs, particularly Portland Town of course. Our best wishes go out to his wife Danny and daughter Rebecca. His funeral will be on Thursday 10th at 3pm Antwerp crematorium -- Ian Anderson f-Roots magazine froots@froots.demon.co.uk http://www.froots.demon.co.uk/
