Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
I lived in Liverpool for a few months in 1970/71. I remember attending a folk club, in a pub, in the city centre (I couldn't tell you now which pub it was). I recall that it was run by a bloke called Tony Wilson (?) and he had a sidekick called Bernard (?) I remember them as great singers and very welcoming. Three guests that I remember were Roy Harris, Bob Davenport and Mike Harding.

I'm afraid that the details are very hazy now - 38/39 years is a long time! What sticks in my mind, though, is that this was my first time living away from home but I could walk into a folk club and meet new people almost straight away - and it's still possible to do that today (just about).
