Thread Name: womens role in folk clubs
Subject: RE: womens role in folk clubs
I've just dug out a tape of the club I've been talking about, compiled(by someone else) from sessions at the club 62-66. Interestingly, it features our very own McGrath from harlow in his youth. This tape is much more dominated by men than my recollections of the club(but I didnt make the compilation!). There are ten men and one woman on it.
However, interestingly enough, in Dave Bryant post earlier listing women performers in folk, 2 (10%) of his list were members of the club I am talking about in the 60's. So it was obviously a good place for women performers to practise their art in their formative years!
