Thread Name: What are your memories of MSG Folk Club
Subject: RE: What are your memories of MSG Folk Club
Folk nights: Blackpool Taveners, Bernard Wrigley, Dave & June Brooks,
Watt Nichol(played 2 whistles), Wally Whyton, Jo Ann Kelly and many more. Oh, let's not forget the chinese waiter.
Blues nights: The 1st one (I think) with John Dummers Blues Band featuring Dave Kelly (Jo Ann was on upstairs and came down and did a couple of songs with the band. Simon Praeger & Steve Rye, Bob Hall and Arthur (Duke Boy) Bonner sounding just like original scratchy blues recordings.
Wish I had nicked the sign too, can't believe how long the building stood empty.
The stroll/jog back to London Road Station to catch the last train home.
I used to work at J & N Philips (Church St/Tib St)in those days.
It was just like 'Are you being served' ("are you free") only wholesale.
