Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
I recall the Dolphin Canning Place'glass-and-steel' horror as being a Thursday night with Bernie Davis' involvement, blow-up seagull et al. That land is now part of the revamped ghastly glass-and-steel horror called Liverpool One.
The modern hotel housed the "2+1" Club which Barbara refers to in a previous post.
The Poly's 'Commerce Bar' is the place you're thinking of on Tithebarn Street - happy nights with Silly Wizard there, when they were part of the Liverpool scene. I remember a stage show of some sort at the Everyman which involved Johnny Cunningham being winched up to the flyspace by his feet, still playing his fiddle! John was literally up for anything those days - good company, always ready for a chat and a beer. He, and the band are much-missed and if anyone deserves a boxed it's them - tied up in the (sh-hh, don't mention it) saga of Celtic Music I suppose?
