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!
