Bet you all wondered when I was going to appear on this site(or maybe you were glad I hadn't)
Mary Hollins(Edwards) told me about it last year. Andy Seagroatt had told her about it.
We had a really good browse. Loads of good memories - also some we may want to forget. Here's a few.
The greeen Moose on a Saturday afternoon with a vague smell of weed in the air. Andy Seagroatt strumming away on the mandolin. Chatting with Colin or Ted behind the counter. Brendan McCormack giving us a tune after the Vic had closed and we'd gone back to the Moose for a coffee and mini session.
Mabel in The Post Office around the corner constantly asking Mary and I were we 18!! No one asks me that now!
Coming back from The Bothy on a Sunday night with Tony Wilson, and ohers,on the train. If there was a hold up Tony would shout "British Fail" all over the train.
Remember the barmaid at the Vic.
Southport Swords first busk at Knutsford on May Day.
Returned to Whitby Folk Week for the first time in 39 years in Aug 2009 but I will return. Had a great few days-so much to do.
