OldNicKilby Who invented Folk Clubs UK (184* d) RE: Folklore: Who invented Folk Clubs UK 16 Aug 13

I have the minutes and the programmes for a "Folk Club" that was operating in Leicester in 1933 to 1937, it may have lasted longer. It seemed to be the Brain Child of Eric Swift. There was a constitution and of course a committee. I found the documents when I bought Eric's library of Folk Books at an auction. I think that Doc Rowe has other evidence of early clubs
