Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
The news I have on Brian Jacques is that he is a very famous childrens author. I work in education and often come upon his name he has written a series of books about animals and is really big in America. The lady he used to sing with is called Liz and she had a strong voice, they used to sing a song called the evacuee.

In February 1971 the club dates in local folk were as follows:-
The Bothy-Blundell Arms, Southport
Pez Esparda-Temple st,Liverpool
Pinehurst-Townend Lane
Powder Keg-Nelson Hotel, Neston
Littlefolk-Old Parkonians Rugby club, Birkenhead
Argonaut Folk Club- Grange Rd West, Birkenhead
Calico-Park Hotel, Wigan
J & B,s-Domestic Mission, Mill St, Liverpool
Liverpool Folk Club-Mitre, Dale Street
Hope and Anchor- Prescott
County Folk- Ship Inn, Haskayne
Rhonas club-New Ferry
Atlantic House, Hardman Street, Liverpool
Hainaut- Mons Hotel, Queens Drive, Bootle.
Cor! There are more in the following month. The articles, reviews and news on all the different groups and clubs really brings memories back. Oh, and Lenny Cruckshank and Joe Rooney ran a club at The Albany on Smithdown Rd, called Black and Tan. It was 20p to get in.

I,m sorry I don,t know what happened to Tony Murphy or Pete MaCovern but I,d like to know
