ANYBODY REMEMBER THE MANCHESTER SPORTS GUILD FOLK CLUB IN THE 60'S, 70'S?

I thougt if you could remember the 60's you weren't really there!

I remember seeing a couple of blokes there who called themselves the Humblebums. Some Scots git called Connely and a no hoper called Rafferty. There was some other bloke called Harding there as well. None of them ever got anywhere ...;-)

I very nearly nicked the old MSG sign from round the back of the Cathederal before they did up the shop fronts about 10 years ago. I never got round to it but I've still got the memories though.

Thanks for reminding us.

Cheers

Early-mid 60s there used to be a folk night at MSG emceed by someone called Drony. Those were the days when the "big" local group was Folk Song Northwest, till Frank Duffy left them to pursue a solo career, (I don't think he ever caught it), and they became the Northwest Folk Four. I'd get down to MSG occasionally but it was a bit of a zoo. (I did live in the more refined Victoria Park).

Ah, yes, Noreen, certainly before your time - I could tell by looking at the photo gallery :-)

I suspect I too could covet that concertina.

Back then I just had an old guitar I was teaching myself to play, playing in a "bluegrass" band with Alan Hodson and a couple of other folks. I don't remember it as well as I might - it was the 60s, after all.

I used to go regularly, I loved it!!! Saw Carthy and Swarbrick a few times, Mike Harding, Marie Little, Magna Carta, and loads more. I used to go to Harry Boardman's club as well.
That was in the days when there was no fear of being mugged or murdered in Manchester late at night, and I could safely get the last bus home to Northenden!

I remember going there after my Saturday job in Safeways! Went one week with a couple of friends (Liz and Pete, Bron) after I'd split up with my boyfriend and some bloke chatted me up. We've been married for 24 years!

We have a very old LP (1967) that was a live recording at the club featuring the Taverners, Mary Asquith and Sheila, the Penine Folk, Harry Ogden, Lyn Taylor and Ken Wilson.

I seem to remember a duo called Ad Hoc and a group called Gypsy's Kiss. There was also a very young Paul Brady with the Johnsons. Anybody who was anybody I guess!

Aaaahhh memories. I sang there several times in the mid-sixties, early in my career. I was trying to play guitar in those days before common sense reigned. I remember Jenks too. Famously candid, to say the least. I shared the bill one night with an excellent banjo player named Roger Knowles. He went on to a long career too, played in Europe a lot. Haven't seen him in years. Anybody know what he's doing now? His wife was a good trad style singer. Great days, large audiences.

I remember seeing Alex Campbell at the MSG. Half way through the evening, Alex (true to form) was clearly the worse for wear, downing pints with whisky chasers. The crowd began to get roudy, as Alex's singing deteriorated and he began to bicker with members of the audience. I remember Alex asking a couple of lads to join him outside, as things were rapidly spinning out of control. Then he sang "The Last Thing on my Mind" - the Tom Paxton song - and I can still feel the deafening quiet that descended on the place. Don't ask me when that was - I'd guess '66 but maybe someone out there has a better memory - but it was pure Alex - and I've not forgotten that moment.

Happy days indeed. I was one of the squad of MCs, at three and a half guineas a pop.

Frank Duffy's Singers' Club on a Monday, later taken over by the ineffable Drony (John Dronsfield) was amazing. You paid one and three to entertain people who had paid one and three to be entertained. Great place for trying out new material, though.

I packed it in in 1972, I think - and I am almost certain that I was MC on the night that Alex was the top line, mentioned above.

We shall never see its like again, or of that grisly old bastard, Jenks, who ran the gaff.

Any other members of "Mancunian Way" out there ?

I saw Alex a couple of times at MSG - late sixties / early seventies methinks. A towering figure indeed, but as you say when he launced into Tom Paxton songs like Last Thing On My Mind and the beautiful Victoria Dines Alone, he showed his gentler side and held the audience spellbound. A great character - the only one who could call Jenks 'Mr Jinks' and get away with it!! Still got an LP where he introduces people like 'an up-an-coming folk singer' called Sandy Denny. A great character, great singer/muscician 'yeah oh yeah'!

I remember MSG - the folk clulb was definitely upstairs and the jazz downstairs. The room was painted dark colours - or was that just the nicotine on the walls?
I saw AL Lloyd there, Ewan & Peggy, Harry Boardman and most of all I remember the Grehan sisters who played Irish music like I had never heard it before.
Funny - I don't remember seeing Carthy,but maybe that was a three pints evening....Frank Duffy used to MC the singers nights, then later was replaced by Drony. Didn't realise he was a lecturer - but there were a lot of teachers about then in folk music.
THe Old House at Home was probably the best-hidden venue in Greater Manchester. I remember doing a gig there and having to walk home to Fallowfield carrying a banjo because the buses had all stopped at 11.30 and there were no all-night buses or taxis to be seen. Wouldn't do it now! Too old / not daft enough!
See you at Saddleworth.

Hello Mary! You were there too? The MSG has never been displaced in my affections, except perhaps by the RAOB club in Leeds. I remember as well as the above, Jackie & Bridy (spelling?) and Donovan with Gypsey Dave in the background. And the waiter (and anyone else walking in front of the stage) braving John Connolley's banter.

Ah yes - Draught Porridge. I remember queing up outside the Troubadour in London and not getting in, but listening from outside.

Later saw them properly at our own club in Surbiton.
The bass player was Ron Chesterman and of course the inimitable Davey Johnston (better known as Shaggis). As you say, still with Elton John. And still very flamoyant, but never matching those halcyon days. No doubt made a few more bob than he did with DP.

Forgot to say in previous post, I played at MSG several times in the late 60s - with Derek Sarjeant Trio. We drove all the way up from Surbiton - which in those days was nearly a whole days jaunt (pre M6), although thinking about it, it's not much different post M6!! But you couldn't be late. If the contract said start at 8.00, if you were late, Jenks used to dock your fee, even if you weren't due on till 9.00. Disley, who also used to do it regularly, never got his full fee!!

Also, on the subject of Alex Campbell, we always used to say that he had opened and closed more clubs than anybody else. He was a favourite for the opening night as he was a guaranteed 'full house' to get things off to a good start. And usually a few months later, there he was again closing things down. (Yes, even in those great days, clubs used to close frequently - usually because of landlords/breweries etc - but often through lack of support. If you didn't get the formula right even then, things failed. Nothing changes really. The difference was there were always new ones starting up).

Alex was a lovely man, but after a few whiskies did get a bit morose, and I can remember us sending him home after the interval at Surbiton as he was no longer capable of finishing off the night. But we still booked him back time aand time again. There was no one to match him for engaging an audience when he was on form.

I can picture the rooms now - jazz donwnstairs originally (i think Maynard Fergusson was guest a couple of times) and folk upstairs where i first saw Carthy/Swarb. Then downstairs in larger room, bar on left as you go in and stage in middle on right with the 'bogs' at the back which flooded on the last night as Harding did his bit (on stage singing i mean).

I remember the Old House at Home too Mary; down Bottomley Side way. I work at M/C Uni now - didn't you used to run the folk club hear a few years ago. By the way - fab gig at Saddleworth!
