ChrisJBrady Stanford Arms Folk Club (8) RE: Stanford Arms Folk Club 22 Apr 18


A crowd of us used to go cycling on Sundays with the Brighton YHA Group. We always ended up at the Stanford Arms, parking the bikes under the stairs. No locks in those days. Then a perfect folk club session ended off a great weekend. I think the drink of the moment was black current and Merrydown (Sussex apple wine). We saw many guests there from the mainstream folk scene of the time - 1960s. I do remember two heavy pipe cigar smokers who always sat in the front row and made the atmosphere very rich indeed. I think too that the folk sessions were taped. What a store they would be if digitised and uploaded to the web. Funnily the Springfield FC nearby never quite had the same ambience - seemingly to cater for trad. unaccompanied singers. An acquired taste we didn't have in those days. Happy days.
