Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Frank - how about setting one up. There's no doubt that there is a wealth of history about the folk movement in this thread alone.
Who was the guy who published a Folk News magazine around that time. I think he worked in a car showroom on prescott rd. I remember causing a stir when he published my article on why the Mitre closed. Tony Wilson had a go at me at Whitby about it when I stood by what I had said-The Mitre had grown complacement and we never knew from one week to the next which of the regular presenters was going to be there. It was run by John Howson, Bernie Davis & Tony Wilson at the time. I think Tony had become more interested in the Bothy at Southport.
Why did he change his name? Was it to avoid confusion with the,at least, seven other Tony Wilsons that I know of on the folk scene
