Tony changed monikers to give son Nicholas, the same name as his mother I think!!!! When born, there was no way Tony could deny parentship - flaming red hair, same features - all he needed was a beard! Pat came back from abroad and as in the best of ballads placed the young lad in Wilson's arms and said, amongst other things I'd guess, "he's yours." They were happy as a family unit for some years.
Wasn't Folk News realised by Roy Webster (husband of Sue - former member of Jack Ketch Band) and Lew Baxter? Lew was what would now be called a mover and shaker.
The Bothy absorbed Tony for a good while, until CAMRA took over. By that time, in the mid-'70s the Club was doing fine with a strong Resident panel whereas CAMRA was a fledging organisation which could, Tony felt, probably rightly, use his energies to better effect. What energies too! He is much missed.

Frank - how about setting one up. There's no doubt that there is a wealth of history about the folk movement in this thread alone.
Who was the guy who published a Folk News magazine around that time. I think he worked in a car showroom on prescott rd. I remember causing a stir when he published my article on why the Mitre closed. Tony Wilson had a go at me at Whitby about it when I stood by what I had said-The Mitre had grown complacement and we never knew from one week to the next which of the regular presenters was going to be there. It was run by John Howson, Bernie Davis & Tony Wilson at the time. I think Tony had become more interested in the Bothy at Southport.
Why did he change his name? Was it to avoid confusion with the,at least, seven other Tony Wilsons that I know of on the folk scene

Yes, that's got to be Gill and Judith. We once had a sort of musical trio going but could ever agree on the choice of material, the keys, or the arrangements. Gill used to introduce me as the person who taught her to play the banjo, but I'm not sure that's true. Likewise, Pete Rimmer used to intoduce me as his dad (which isn't true)or the chap who taught him to play the guitar (which, again isn't true)!

Could Judith have been Judith Cummins? I knew her and her Mother. Guitar player. She came along to the Bothy and I'm sure she was involved in something medical. I remember her with her then boyfriend - Andrew something, who went on to playing keyboards with a cabaret/lounge band -'Panache' or summat.
If it's the same gal, she married and now lives in South Africa.

Jill? - Gill, then Bimson - married one of the Coyne lads, Terry or Eamon but is no longer Mrs Coyne. Good singer. Of course, I could be entirely wrong here - with eiher woman!!!!

Does anyone out there remember a couple of young women that used to be very visible on the Liverpool Folk scene around 1980? They went everywhere together and I think they were both dentists or dental students. I associate them mainly with the Cross Keys club. I think one - the dark one - was called Jill. They both used to do floor spots.

The memories keep flooding back. Maggie reminded me that Bernie Davis & John Howson were a duo of some sort and sang as "Oglet" a name I think they got from a stretch of the Mersey near the airport known as Oglet Banks.
Last saw Brian Jaques with Liz and Pete McGovern at St Johns School in Skelmersdale just before we left for the south in 1979.
When we lived in Skem there was a Folk Club run by the local council at the Knowle Brow Pub. They had plenty of money and were able to book some great guests. I recall seeing Tony Rose, Mike Harding and Bernard Wrigley, complete with bass concertina, there (not on the same night) and doing a couple of songs ourselves.

Bernie Davis was one of the funniest people on the folk scene around that time.- I remember him guesting at the Pinehurst for Old Rope and singing shanties while his inflatable pigeon was flown around the room. I think the song was Rolling Home.
Clive - Give my (and Maggies ) regards to Pricey and remind him of when we were neighbours in Skem, and my role as Door Keeper for the Ols Rope club in a pub in Breck Road.
I still have the Windsor Zither banjo hich he swapped for an old melodeon although I have rebuilt it an reired the cracks he put in it when he threw it on the floor because it went out of tune during a song

Keith can be found at the Everyman, or the Bothy clubs on a fairly regular basis, sometimes sitting in with bands playing Irish pubs or at sessions. He keeps busy and retains that laconic wit he always had. Even he hasn't heard from Ken in ages though Kenny's still living in Liverpool but Pricey says he hasn't picked up his fiddle in years.
Penny Black? - wasn't Doug Mason from Birkenhead involved in that one?
Ah,hh Triumph Heralds - ours was E reg. (1967?) and racing green!!!!!
Stalled going up Sutton Bank on way to Whitby Fest. handbrake failed and the old thing was never the same - nor were my nerves as we slowly rolled backwards down that 1 in 3!!!!!!

Are any members of Old Rope still about or performing. I know that Ted Barwise passed away some years ago but haven't heard from Ken Dunlop or Keith Price for ages.
Was there a group of Post Office workers who called themselves Penny Black and practiced at the main post Office. One of the group was called Steve and he played a mandolin (Mainly the tune from Magis Roundabout. He came to a party in London with us (Myself & Maggie ) and shared the back seat of my Triumph Herald with a girl called Diane Clough.

From folk clubs to coffee shops what about the Masque, the only coffee shop where you could pay to drink coffee and then stay late and help polish the floor. I did this once and arrived home at 3am. my mothers comment was that maybe I could stay home just one night and polish ours.
Anyone else remember the fury of the customers waiting in the queue as we swanned past them up the stairs and Paddy always let us in first.

Reading all these messages makes me feel 17 all over again, would that looking 17 was so easy. Many thanks John for inviting us to your Birthday Bash it was a great night. So many people I could remember and did and many I should have remembered and didn't !!

A number of posts mention Ted Owens, a few years back Brian and I tried to contact him, we drew a blank after he left YHA., so Ted if you're a secret "mudcatter" please get in touch.

A message for Rod Davies: If you keep the photo of me serving in the Moose out of circulation I'll keep the one I have of the very young Bluegrass Ramblers under wraps. Wiilie Russell also sent me a photo of a session at the Moose. The only suitable caption I can think of for it is " does your mother know you're out? " everyone looks impossibly young.

Lots of Posts about Bernie and the Parrot, amongst a million memories I have an abiding one of "Nellies" football team playing in a snow storm somewhere on the Wirral, after abandoning the game the whole team and it's supporters turned up en masse at John Gothards sisters house, the poor woman unfortunately lived nearby, She borrowed chairs,cups and mugs from her neighbours and gave us all succour until we could leave for a session which I think was in the "Travellers Rest". Harry Boardman was booked for the evening but because of the snow he couldn't make it so Bernie (with parrot) gave the performance of his life. That was a night to remember and one where I really did think dying laughing was a distinct possibilty.

Poring over the Tony Wilson (Molyneux) archive again, in amongst the various letters of confirmation and regret ("Martin already has bookings for all three of the dates you gave us, so will not be able to be with you." - signed, Dorothy Carthy) is a little touch on the times from as recently as March 1974,in a letter from Mick Groves.
reads - "Dear Tony, Just to confirm the Bothyfolk for next Monday, 18th to introduce Sean Cannon and do 2 x half hour spots, for £15."
Presumably The Spinners had their own gig and were asking the lads to dep. Wonder how much Sean got?

It was all made possible by the wonderful Paddy Byrne (the owner) who I suppose I first met when I was about seventeen in the company of Tony Wilson.

Banjoman it's from 16th October - 1st November and the site is www.liverpoolirishfestival.com. Exactly what some of the headliners are doing in there is open to conjecture! Sponsored by Guinness so I guess they want some crowd-pullers for their money, and I'm not being cynical - just realistic.I was on the Committee of the first one and compared to that caper, it's surely nothing less than professional now.
The sessions and the non-music fringe should be as good as ever.

I'll try and find out a bit more news of Tony Murphy. Liverpool Irish Festival is coming up soon and old faces tend to emerge from the woodwork for that!
The Odd Spot in Bold Street was quite a 'Beat' venue in its day. I can tell you that the Beatles played there on 29th March and 11th August 1962!!!!!!!!!! Venue opened 9th December 1961.

Sad to hear about Pete McGovern. Good to know that Tony Murphy is still about. I think he wrote "The Orange and the Green" which the spinners recorded.
The club I recall in Bold st was at the Odd Spot and was run by a group called Sink Folk who guested at the Wyndham in Bootle on a couple of occasions.
