Big Al Whittle Working men's clubs, UK (14) RE: Working men's clubs, UK 07 Jun 21


What I forgot to say was that The Bachelors, at one time, were very much part of the Dublin folk scene.

John Wall, the Leeds agent , who ran the Nashville club. Told me of the times he used to book Christy Moore to do his club and dig his garden for a fiver.

Also he used to book Johnny MacEvoy. I think he'd had the hit over in Ireland with Muirsheen Durkin, and Noel Murphy was doing it in the clubs over here.

If you look at MacEvoys work at the time - it runs from Shores of Amerikay to Hickory Wind - traddy to The Eagles. I don't think the distinctions can be quite as sharp amongst musicians over in Ireland.

But we English, we take our class system down every avenue.
