Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
I have a piece of archive that I've long treasured. A small orange-backed booklet published by Mersey & Deeside District of EFDSS in 1972 (as the redoubtable Miss Anderson was retiring to be superseded by the Northern Regional Organiser). It has a Performers Index - listing Soloists, Bands and callers, Clubs, Customs. Everything the fledgling enthusiast could wish.
Period adverts abound; - Merseyside Folklore Research Association, mentioned earlier in this thread (Vice-President A.L. Lloyd)- a Club at 'The Yankee Clipper' in Temple Street where I saw Cliff Aungier once, Mike Harding (pudding tickler & maggot breeder). Strewth!
EFDSS annual membership was 3 per individual, and Derek if you don't have a copy, you're welcome to have a butcher's next week!!!!   
According to this priceless document, Adrian House's Organiser was John Davies with Residents, The Kings Shilling - that'll be John, with Frank McCall and John Cornett then. I think Tony Rosney was involved at some stage and also Keith Myers, who'll be supping a pint of Strongarm in the 'Elsinore' Whitby, this time next Monday!
