blinddrunkal Folk Clubs, Greater Manchester 1960-99 (267* d) RE: Folk Clubs, Greater Manchester 1960-99 10 Sep 10

Can't find any mention of The Pack Horse on Bridge Street - I used to go there in 1967 - if I remember correctly (and I don't always) the resident players were Norman Jones and Dick (Collison?) - saw Mary Asquith, Meic Stevens, Harry Boardman, amongst others (the late Brian Moss). That was the first time I heard "Blues Run The Game" sung by Mary Asquith, in a much later (30 odd years) conversation with Meic, he said he'd learned the song from Jackson C.Frank in the Troubador, and passed it on to Mary, but then everybody used to sing that song back then. A year or so later we had a College folk club in the Cross Keys on Broad Street, Salford, with residents Pat Ford, Mick Cosgrave, Brian Moss, and the enigmatic "Black Stan". Last time I saw Stan was in the Salutation near the Art College, he'd shaved off his beard, and said he was moving to Sussex to record an album - heard nothing since.....has anybody??
