Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Brings back lots of memories about Liverpool in the 60s & early 70s. You all forgot to mention the Ale House Folk Club which started in the "Conservative" club on Townsend lane and moved to a pub further up Breck Road then finally ending up at the Cattle Market. Run by the Old Rope Band with loads of guests and floorsingers including myself and my wife soon to be - Maggie -
In fact the liverpool Ceilidh Band played at our wedding reception in the Cattle Market on Prescott Road in 1972.

Anyone remember the "Air Guitarist" Ken Adams?

In those days we could go to a different folkclub eavery night and often did. We also spent many late hours at the house of John Fellowes - a poet - and going straight on to work.
Alas time has taken its toll although we still get involved in the folk scene down in Hampshire.
Regards to old friends

Pete (& Maggie)
