Great memories from Toronto in the late '70's and '80's -
Stan Rodgers doing an annual gig for Tam Kearney in Fiddler's Green folk club, fiddle players Ali Bain and Jean Carignan having a tune at Mariposa on the Island, Eric Bogle singing "The Band played Waltzing Matilda" at (appropriately enough) the Tranzac Club, plus all the great local talent that appeared at the folk clubs and folk festivals.
Toronto band Tip Splinter, with songwriters Jamie Snider and Kieran Wade in the line-up, used to do a regular gig for Mariposa at the Flying Cloud folk club, also at the Tranzac: check them out here
