Yes John from Elsie's- don't write me off yet- had some of my best nights ever at Elsie's & Doris's- Francie's still rattling her spoons and is asking after you!
Mind you, I think I owe something to Vic & Tina Smith as well as Isobel & Joby…
To clarify, I met Vic & Tina at the Blairgowrie festival in 1968- we said goodbye after the festival- I had assumed they were living in Scotland & I was moving south so said something like 'see you both next year'....
Anyway I moved south to work for Thames TV in Teddington & went to Rod & Danny Stradling's club at the 'Fighting Cocks' in Kingston. Rod organised a bus trip to a ceilidh at the Wooden Bridge hotel , on the Guildford bypass, with the Rakes as the band.
To my amazement, within minutes I found myself next to Vic in a 'Strip the Willow' set!
I think Vic offered me a booking at the 'Laughing Fish' in Isfield & met Isobel & Joby there?
Bit of a memory ramble, but hope some folk can make a connection like Isobel & Joby did all the time!
Oh, and this was 1968, not 1970- must be older than I thought...
