yes ,I reckon I was going to both clubs,About 1969 to 1973.I was a floorsinger at both clubs ,I didnt learn the concertina till 1976,But pete hicks and pete chopin encouraged me a lot,Farningham was a great club,both fridays and sundays were packed,and you had to be good to get a floor spot.
I remember getting there early once [it was the summer time]and there was this old guy who had come from shropshire by public transport,waiting outside the pub ,so when it openEd we had a good old chat and a couple of pints,that was the first time I met Fred Jordan.Farningham was great,Breezy and Billy Bob,and tito gobbi of the balls pond road,all used to go there,Those were the days.
