Nicholas Waller Roy Harris goes to Gaol in Derby (UK) (27) RE: Roy Harris goes to Gaol in Derby (UK) 15 Feb 11


Talking of Old School, our records at The Topic (ie, our recently updated online Gigs List, now with dates going back to 1960), shows Roy Harris appearing at the club a little over 51 years ago, on 5th February 1960.

The week before we had The Stewart Family (I am assuming the Stewarts of Blair) and the day after we had The Crimple Mountain Boys. The only other acts we have listed that year are: Jimmie MacGregor and Shirley Bland; Jacqui McDonald and Bridie O'Donnell; Steve Benbow; and Winston and Mary-Jane Young.

That may be because of a certain paucity of records that far back, or because the vast majority of club meetings were singarounds, or a bit of both. It wasn't until 1968, it appears, that half the club nights had paid guests. In 1969, almost every week we had a paid guest.
