Big Al Whittle Birmingham Folk Clubs 1950's to 1970's (17) RE: Birmingham Folk Clubs 1950's to 1970's 08 Dec 19

Also worth mentioning id Bob Lines who did sterling work running The Beggars Bush in Sutton where many people got started out. Also Bob did one in Sutton, in a hotel.

That was where I saw a great number of artists, but one duo that sticks in my mind is Mick and Aiden Forde. Aiden gigged with Ian Campbell, Drowsy maggie, and more latterly with Noel Murphy.

I believe Aiden also had some success with a song called Dublin, You're Breaking My Heart.

Mick was a great picker of the guitar who could do some of Doc Watson's stuff. I think they lived Erdington, but the family were from Tuam.

Here is Aiden
