GUEST,Gealt Obit: Maggie Boyle R.I.P. (1956-2014) (49) RE: Obit: Maggie Boyle R.I.P. 12 Nov 14


I remember the Boyle family from The White Hart, Fulham Broadway in the early 70s. Maggie was in her teens then. She recalled those time on Mudcat:thread.cfm?threadid=36295#2807133

Fascinating stuff. I spent most of the late 60s/70s in Fulham Broadway's(best irish trad scene ever - but I may be a little biased!) White Hart/King's Head/Hibernian Club, with very occasional forays to folky venues. Monday was Half Moon Putney folk night. I remember the Nag's Head Folk Club on York Road Battersea (not only adjacent to glucose & candle factories, but Gordon's gin too. such a fragrant area to grow up in!)) - only went a few times..think I saw Jeremy Taylor there. Jonah (john jones) was MC, and Jug Band & Tony O'Leary in support. Also went to Fighting Cocks in Kingston, run by (now) friend Sue Houston(Knevett then)..this was my first experience of a really strong trad English singing club.
The brothers & I ran a saturday lunchtime session at Riverside Studios foyer, approx.'76-'79. Not a folk club, but we were resident band and always had a guest performer. We had a great run there with so many wonderful guests. Does anyone remember this?

I last heard Maggie sing in the King & Queen about 5 years ago, a wonderful session. She also regaled us with stories about her late father, Paddy. So sad.
