Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
The club at the Old Fort in Prescott St was run by myself (pete) and my then fiance Maggie (nee Bowers) for many years. I was there on the night the Orange Lodge came in and being a devout catholic joined in their songs and we had a great night. The club was frequented by lots of poets as well as singers. I think the pub is still there opposite the hospital which dominates the area now.
We also had a passing involvement with the Grapes in Birkenhead and I remeber booking the Songwainers there.
