Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Brigantine - yes that was the name of the group. I remember the guy he sang with was our insurance man who collected every week. Name was either Pete or Tony Hyams. My Brother Mike used to give him Guitar lessons. Some of you may remember Mike who died earlier this year. He was a frequenter of the Everyman and tried to pass himself off as an Irish Gypsy (with some success) He was an exceptional guitar player and in better times made a name as a flamenco player.
Anyway, back to the thread- Is Pete McGovern still about? I have found several references to him on a number of web sites. He was the first person I heard singing The hole in the elephant's bottom which I pinched and still sing down here in Hampshire.
