Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
I wonder does anybody remember Noel Scanlon? Fairly young bloke. Irish. Helluva good singer as I remember, who had an unfortunate tendency to get extremely drunk on a Saturday night. This was so much so that the Mersey Traditional Gathering reluctantly had to ban him.

Can anyone remember which part of Ireland he was from, also any of the songs he used to sing? The only one I can bring to mind was a song about a stowaway called the City of Baltimore.
