Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Oh I am loving this! I'm now up to 1975 in my old diary search.
We used to go to The Travellin Peoples club in Crosby on a Friday, then to Brians flat afterwards to eat scones ( we used to hide them in our guitar cases when he wasn't looking, cos they weren't very good). Oily Joes was Nellie's new pub when she left the Customs house in November 73. We went to the Mons folk club sometimes it was run by the Folkways. John and I visited The Brunswick in Crewe in 74, was that Derek's club ? I also have mention of the 2 plus 1 Centre club which was on Sundays and the Clubship Landfall on Saturdays. In 1975 The Spinners moved to The Triton on Paradise Street, and it was never the same.
Can someone tell me if it's true that when Paddy Doody got back from New Zealand he gave the song Davy Lowston to Martin Carthy or did I dream that ?
Also around this time there was a session at the Cleveland on Thursdays Stan Francis had something to do with that. Not forgetting the Crack on Wednesdays Silly Wizzard often came when they lived in Liverpool. The lovely Martin Dunn moved to Liverpool from Northumberland around this time. He now lives near Bacup and is a keen Nutter.
I also have some old photos including one of The Jack Ketch Band with the Ketchelettes at a Christmas do 1977 (I think).
