GUEST,Rod Davis Liverpool Folk Club 1970 (539* d) RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970 14 Sep 09

Not only was the Spinners Club in Sampson & Barlow's,but Sam Leach's Peppermint Lounge also! But of course the Spinners eventually moved to Gregson's Well.

Rosie Davis is not only my sister, she's also Bernie Davis's sister!

Barry Flynn was the banjo picker with the Moonshiners, I saw him many years ago at the Peterborough Country Music Festival when he was playing with Hank and the Dusty Road Ramblers. At the time I was playing with the Armadilloes, a tex-mex-bluegrass outfit which included Alan Ward, Rick Townend, Rosie Davis, Peta Webb and Tony Engle, (+ bass player Keith Calton/Laurie Harper/Alex??)We even appeared at the Liverpool Folk Festival and at The Cavern where Bernie played bass for us.

The last time I saw Barry was at the Phil Concert for the 50th Anniversary of the Buddy Holly gig in March '08. He was appearing with the Britannia Bluegrass Band and I was with the Quarrymen (Lennon's old outfit which was where I started out on banjo aged 14). We met up in the Phil pub later and on the Quarrymen's website there is a photo of the whole band, with Ted Costello, Pat Lindon, Pete Mackie and Kenny Johnson.

I haven't heard of Ted from the Green Moose, but I do have a photo of Silky (Irene), now Fergie's wife, working behind the counter!

Keep'em coming! - Rod Davis
