Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
The memories keep flooding back. Maggie reminded me that Bernie Davis & John Howson were a duo of some sort and sang as "Oglet" a name I think they got from a stretch of the Mersey near the airport known as Oglet Banks.
Last saw Brian Jaques with Liz and Pete McGovern at St Johns School in Skelmersdale just before we left for the south in 1979.
When we lived in Skem there was a Folk Club run by the local council at the Knowle Brow Pub. They had plenty of money and were able to book some great guests. I recall seeing Tony Rose, Mike Harding and Bernard Wrigley, complete with bass concertina, there (not on the same night) and doing a couple of songs ourselves.
