Thread Name: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
Just been reading through this thread and can across the comments regarding The Knowl Brow Folk Club in Skelmersdale & Dave Hockley. I was Daves flat mate at the time and so was dragged in to play bass with the resident band at the club. In the original line up as well as Dave H & I were Dave Armour who worked for Skelmersdale Development Corporation and had the remit to run the club on their behalf. Also there were Mike & Val Green on mandolin and voice and another singer called Chris whose second name is lost to me in the mists of time. When the club moved from fortnightly to weekly we did turn and turn about with Derek Griffifths. The guest list was pretty impressive for the time and a small club and all for 50p. Sadly Dave Hockley (David Ennion as a published poet) died in 2007. It'd be interesting to see if anyone rise has memories of that club.
