Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Not guilty Baz, on the John Fellowes allusion - was that young geezer Shay Black, but I do like his turn of phrase! I think I'm right in saying Rod Baxter has won that "Worst singer in the world" award more times than most at Fylde?
Derek's most recent post probably lies at the heart of the 'where on earth do we go from here and who's going to nurture the grass roots when us old guard are no longer here?' debate. Liverpool's situation where one had in 1970, a choice of clubs to attend ANY night of the week, simply mirrors what's happened nationwide. I'm blowed if I know where to start on any sort of resolution but I can remember going to heated Festival workshops on the self-same subject over 30 years ago!!!! - and don't get me started on open mic nights!
