Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Wow. Seems strange that we all got so much from old songs and tunes then stopped doing it. I stopped singing, no great loss their, for about 20 years, and picked it up again after learning tunes on the mandola.

I always felt that my time in Liverpool Clubs (67 - 74) was a kind of apprenticeship. Meeting and hearing people like Tony Wilson, Bernie Davis, John Howson, Frank MacColl, Tom Brown, John Kelly and of course yourselves in Old Rope. Something about the songs & tunes being more important than the performers.
