Subject: RE: Review: 'Troubadours' documentary - '70s LA folk
The club in London called the Troubadour played host to some famous folkies like Carolyn Hester, Richard Farina, Bob Dylan and Eric Von Schmidt in the early 1960s.

It was founded in 1954 and, like the American version, continues today.

The LA venue took the British spelling Troubadour from the one in London, when it opened in1957.
