Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Talking about Bernie Davis, I remember being in the folk club that used to be in Dale St near the tunnel entrance ( 1970s?); anyway, Bernie was on the stage asking for floorsingers. He spotted Godfrey Boardman standing by the door. " Come on Godrey", said Bernie, "give us a song". Godfrey just smiled. Bernie continued, "It's all right Godfrey, you can bring the door with you!". Godfrey, for those who don't know, has been a fixture of the Liverpool folk scene forever! He is either working by the door ( i.e. handling entrance money) or simply standing by it. Strangely, I've known Godfey for over 40 years, and I'm still not sure if he even likes folk music!
