GUEST,Don Wise Does anyone really like folk clubs? (102* d) RE: Does anyone really like folk clubs? 09 Mar 12

Ahhh......folk clubs.......I remember some of them well......The Druids FC(Suns.) at The Chestnut Tree in Derby where you had to be careful about stamping on the floor 'cos it disturbed/showered plaster or dust on the drinkers below in the bar. The Old Kings Head(Fri?) in Belper which I helped to run for a while, Derby's Peasmouldia(Thurs.) with The Lonesome Travellers at the helm, Nottingham's NTMC(Fri.) where the committee 'perched' on the radiator behind the singers rather like a jury....There were others...The Ivy Bush in Pontardawe,The Herga in H&W,The Railway(?) at Dartford, and the marvellous Blue Ball sessions organised by Pete & Chris Coe and the Ryburn Valley 'Mafia'.... Since I fled Maggie T's UK 30 years ago I've scarcely been inside a genuine,down-to-earth Folk Club.
One thing I DO NOT MISS- the cigarette smog!
