MG John What got you hooked on folk music? (130* d) RE: What got you hooked on folk music? 10 May 07


My first visit to a folk club occured after being invited by some students with whom I worked.They had just joined a new club in Leeds.The club didn't last longer than a few weeks, but by then I had visited other clubs in the area, and appart from folk songs, I also discovered Irish music was regularly being played live at The Regent public house in the city centre.
Nearby was another pub which hosted a well known folk club, (The Brig), at which, names such as Tony Capstick, Mike Harding, Barbara Dixon, plus many other names which later became famous. It was in 1973 when Barbara Dixon sung a song which she intoduced to the geography experts amongst us as being based at Ythanside, and on seeing this thread it prompted me to make an addition to it.
I found most of the people very friendly,(some I am still in touch with) and it was n't long before I was given the 'nick name' of which many years later I chose to use on Mudcat.
