It was good to see you also Clive, and I must say that you seem to be wearing better than me! The Swords were as good as I can ever remember and we all had a great day, although I can just about remember leaving the Guest House to catch the train back to Liverpool!
Be warned Clive; I will probably show my face at the Bothy one of these weeks!
Stay well my friend.

Ron.

Jean (nee Dever) and I will be at Whitby as usual, and look forward to seeing any 'West coasters' and exiles - where else? - the 'Elsinore.' It was always the Liverpool haunt going back, whilst the Yorkshire side of the country congregated in the 'Star.'
You'll still find Godfrey Boardman in there for early doors, usually with Keith Myers and Jeanie fine-tuning her annual pub tour which takes place on Tuesday lunchtime. Still a large Southport Bothy contingent in there too with Steve Burgess, Mike Lindon and Ian Goodier starting off the evening music sessions. A lively place!

Wow!!! I came across this site by accident and couldn't stop reading it, albeit not all of it. So many familiar names. I often wonder what has happened to the folkies I knew and was saddened to hear of Frank McCall's death, who was a thoroughly lovely guy. Also Mary Price who I loved to have a chat with.

Someone mentioned Gill Burns. We are recent friends on Facebook and I think I'm right in saying that she is back in the family home.

I remember Barry Halpin SO well, having gone away on numerous camping expeditions with him and my husband Mick Johnson. The trips usually involved the whole Coyne family, so as you can imagine, wherever we went the music was great. The Travellers Rest Folk Club in St Helens was one of our regular haunts. We then ran (along with a COMMITTEE the Gregson Wells and have lots of happy memories of all the people there. I am led to believe that Martin Dunn is now a Coconut Dancer and his lovely smile is still recognisable, even through the blacked-up face.

Our group (Seoda Ceoil) consisted of Mick Johnson, myself, Mick Coyne, Shay Black, Martin Dunne and before he went to live in Ireland Davy Brennan. I saw Davy last year at Girvan Folk Festival and it was an absolute treat to see him again. Such a lovely man. I believe he is now a granddad.

Someone mentioned the folk group 'Therapy' with Dave Shannon and Fiona Simpson. When they originally formed, Sam Bracken (now my husband) was also a member. We met up again with Dave in 2006 when there was a Belfast Reunion Concert at the Waterfront Hall. We did a couple of spots together and decided to form a group called .... wait for it...... 'Alternative Therapy'. Dave is now recovering from throat cancer and doing very well. He retired as a BBC radio producer a few years ago now and we are still in touch with him and Linda, his wife.

What is Curly Pete up to these days? When I last saw Andy Seagroatt he said he'd seen him at Broadgreen Hospital.

Mick sadly died 10 years ago next month.

Well I think I've rattled on enough now. Look forward to many more happy memories.

Elaine Bracken (Johnson)

I've just been catching up on the posts and I can't work out how I can remember all these people and places from the past when I can't be sure what I did yesterday.
I wandered into the Greenmoose in 1964 and although Brian and I finally let it go in the mid 70's I'm not sure I ever left the place.

Funny Maggie remebering the Chinese Ghost because I heard him more than once, the first time was before I even knew the place was supposed to be haunted, He was known as "Lui Chan" and the story was that He was a Chinese cook caught being naughty with the bosses wife the boss took a meat cleaver to him which was a bit drastic but it did put an end to the affair.
There was more than one attempt to "catch" him generally after a night of excess in Mabel's but brave hearts fail as the alcohol wears off and for all we know he's still haunting the place.

I keep seeing people asking about Lennie, He's alive and well and can generally be found at the Everyman folk club every Tuesday. However as the Everyman club is moving to the "Fly in the Loaf" aka Kirklands and will be on Wednesdays from late August he will doubtless be there as well.

Regards to All. xx

Hello Mal,

You've given the game away. Yes I was a mod, but I couldn't afford a scooter so I used to ride pillion with my school mate Derek. I met up with Curly Pete and Fergie and Silkie at my 60th birthday which I had at the Everyman bistro over a year ago. Alan Langley is a real name from the past and Pirate John took me for my first Indian meal on Commutation Row. What happened to Greg? who was always pissed in the Post Office pub. The Landlady was Mabel and that is where Mabel's Own Ceili Band got it's name. I saw Rosie Davis last weekend in London and she is on fine form. Keep in touch john@veteran.co.uk

Clive maybe it is time to have a reunion weekend!

Ron. I've heard the Everyman is closing due to the fact that the theatre is up for refurbishment. However, there's at least one other folkclub in central Liverpool. The Woody Guthrie meets on the last Thursday of the month in the Ship and Mitre in Dale Street. As its name implies it's a radical club, with a strong emphasis on left wing political and protest songs.

Check Woodyfolk for more details, but note that tickets can only be obtained through We Got Tickets and that they go awful fast. Note also that this month's session has been moved to the the penultimate Thursday of March, due to an unintentional double booking.

I fondly remenber the old days. The Bennion sisters; Lenny Cruickshank; Old Rope; Lenny Meakin etc etc.
Being part of a younger crowd, we always felt that we were frowned upon by the "finger in the ear brigade".
Good times too, at the Green Moose cafe, and the Post Office Pub.

Memeory isa bit poor but Im sure I last saw John at Alan Langleys 60th??? in Anglesea (may have been 50th), Ive went to Mary's reunion up in the north east, and another in Wavertree

I keep in touch with Silkie and Fergie but I aint seen them for about 4-5 years.

I still see Willy Russell and just went to his daugters wedding in italy last may--Saw andy seagroat there --he hasnt changed a bit.

Does anyone remeber Davey Johnston from Tich and Dave? He plays with Elton John, he keeps in touch and we see him when he tours near here (last one was cancelled)

Seems like yesterday in the Moose, the Vic and the Mitre--Id forgoton about the Bamboo room---I bet in reality those places were real sheds

Good luck and good wishes to anyone I knew back then and I wish absent friends well

Although there is a thread about it already, I am sure that a lot of contributors to this one will remember Brian Jaques with lots of good memories.
Although now known as a writer, there is little reference in the obits about his contribution to the Liverpool Folk Scene, along with Liz and later Tony Hyams "Brigantine"
I, not sure of what his domestic circumstances were, other than that it is reported that he is survived by a wife and 2 sons.

Bet you all wondered when I was going to appear on this site(or maybe you were glad I hadn't)
Mary Hollins(Edwards) told me about it last year. Andy Seagroatt had told her about it.
We had a really good browse. Loads of good memories - also some we may want to forget. Here's a few.
The greeen Moose on a Saturday afternoon with a vague smell of weed in the air. Andy Seagroatt strumming away on the mandolin. Chatting with Colin or Ted behind the counter. Brendan McCormack giving us a tune after the Vic had closed and we'd gone back to the Moose for a coffee and mini session.
Mabel in The Post Office around the corner constantly asking Mary and I were we 18!! No one asks me that now!
Coming back from The Bothy on a Sunday night with Tony Wilson, and ohers,on the train. If there was a hold up Tony would shout "British Fail" all over the train.
Remember the barmaid at the Vic.
Southport Swords first busk at Knutsford on May Day.
Returned to Whitby Folk Week for the first time in 39 years in Aug 2009 but I will return. Had a great few days-so much to do.
