GUEST,Santa Folk Revival in NE England - memories? (20) RE: Folk Revival in NE England - memories? 18 Jan 05

Very little help, I'm afaid, but I used to go to a folk meeting in the small side bar of the Argus Butterfly pub in Peterlee, around 1965-66 perhaps. A friend of mine organised it via a local Christian group. I don't think it lasted very long: the only guest I can remember was Johnny Handle - a great night!

My early interest in folk was via skiffle, and the protest folk songs, and the well-known North-Eastern music-hall songs. I do recall, from subsequent years in Bristol, preferring the troubadors and folk-rock to the more traditional singers. It was moving to the North West in the mid 70s that educated me properly, thanks to the Taverners, Garstang Morris, etc. But that doesn't help you a lot.
