GUEST,John Bailey Folk Clubs London 1960s & 70s (614* d) RE: Folk Clubs London 1960s & 70s 17 Nov 11


Found this thread after MSG reunion concert in Manchester last weekend.
I moved down to Bishops Stortford in 1969 for a couple of years or so. Can't remember clubs I went to / sang at but do remember that afterwards would often end up at Mooneys Bar in The Strand for the night, along with many other musicians. Entry required an instrument in hand. I sadly can't remember who went there, but there were many 'names' and lots of great music.
I did hang about 'The Angel' at Hadham were Fairport were living, my 'claim to fame' being playing spoons with them on occasions and recall those who weren't too tired after returning from a Manchester University gig piling in to my Land Rover to go to the premiere of Alices Restaurant at The Odeon, Leicester Square. Good times.
Also good to see mention of Packy Byrne on here - a lovely man and a great performer. Often played in Manchester in the 60s.
Hope this hasn't gone too far off thread - wish my memory allowed me to contribute more relevant material.
