Subject: RE: Liverpool Folk Club 1970
I had an email from Hilary who confirms a lot of what has already been said. She and Joan were sort of residents at the Bothy when it was at the Cattle Market- She says they were asked to provide some alternative to what was presented by Tony Wilson Dave Boardman & Stan Ambrose and received a drink as payment. The Cattle Market seems ti figure a lot in the history of the Liverpool Folk Scene.
Maggie & I had our wedding reception there in 1972 with the Acme ceilidh band. Also involved with the Old Rope group (Not to be confused with a group currently touring with a similar name)who ran the Ale House Club there.
The Spinners also graced those halls before moving to Gregsons Well.
