Subject: RE: What are your memories of MSG Folk Club
Not so sure I'd agree with Ivan's description of the Spinners as "jumping on the folk bandwagon". They'd been singing together since the 1950s, and were around long before many other folk singers or groups.
But Ivan's other comment, about the sad loss, is undoubtedly the case. On the folk side, it left a vacuum that's never really been filled in terms of a "Manchester Folk Club".
