Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
I've really enjoyed reading this thread. My girlfriend Sue (later my wife) moved to Liverpool in 1971 but as I was working in Northampton I had to hitch to Liverpool on a Friday evening - hopefully in time to get to Atlantic House.

Ww also used to go to the Dolphin which was on a Sunday night, but I had to leave early to catch the last train darn sarf. If there was a particularly good act on I would stay until the end and catch the milk train in the morning.

Sue was in a group with a chap who was a technician at the art college, but I never got to see them perform, as they only seemed to have gigs during the week.

I also remember a Polytechnic club somewhere off Tithebarn street, the entrance was across a bomb site and in through a fire exit!

I don't know if it was the Dolphin that kept moving about, but I remember a club in a fairly modern hotel just opposite Lime Street station, and another in the horrible glass and steel edifice in Canning Place.
