GUEST,jim bainbridge folk club rooms i have dwelt in (59* d) RE: folk club rooms i have dwelt in 07 Dec 20

The Marsden Rattlers drove up from South Shields to Falkirk on a Friday night after work in about 1965 for a booking at the local club, part of a weekend of gigs- ceilidh at Peat Inn on Saturday and St Andrews club at the 'Star Inn'on the Sunday

We arrived late in Falkirk after hitting serious traffic in Edinburgh- no City Bypass in those days, so no chance of a pint en route- no breathalyser either...
As proper folkies, we were appalled to find the club was held in the Temperance Hotel! It was a very friendly club & we enjoyed it, having been assured that the pub over the road was open - we did manage to nip out for a pint of Heavy, but that's all we got, as the club ran late & the pubs in Scotland closed at 10 in those days.

'Heavy on the bevy, wi' a bottle by my side
Heavy on the bevy on the bonnie banks of Clyde,
When the wife has gone to rest, that's the time that I love best
That's when I am heavy on the bevy'

(tune- 'Roamin' in the Gloamin')
