Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
We used to go to the Bag End Folk Club in Ellesmere Port with Barry Walmsley and Ken Wood, but I don't remember who ran it. In 1972 we went to Nellie's ( the Customs House) on Thursdays and Saturdays, it took over from the Mitre. Afterwards we went into the Canning Place and stayed until the sun came up! I haven't got to Oily Joes yet. Frank MaColl appears alot in my diaries as does Bernie, Flat County String Band, John Kaneen, Tony Wilson, Stan, Fergie, Keith who was a friend of Franks and lived near Sefton Park. Oh and I have a mention of Ann Maloney who had just moved down from Oldham and was teaching travellers on the Dock Road. I'll keep reading I'm nearly at the end of 1973.
