Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Just to confirm that the third member of Old Rope was indeed the late Ted Barwise -
Someone also mentioned Barry Walmsley - My wife Maggie was singing in a duo with him when we first met in the Mitre. They had a habit of singing very long unacompanied ballads which I claim always gave me time to get down to the bar for another pint before they finished.
I have now converted her and she is a fine banjo player but still sings some beautiful unacompanied songs as well.
Hoping to be in Liverpool later this year and will try to meet a few old friends.
Some of you may also know my brother Mike Finucane who died earlier this year - a fine guitarist and singer who frequented the Everyman Bar I think.
Always claimed he was an Irish Gypsy but was, Like me, Liverpool born & bred
