Subject: RE: First Song you ever sang in Folk Club
Most likely something off a Ralph McTell record - my first serious influence! - circa 1970-71, at a folk/coffee place (no alcohol served!) run as an outreach operation by a religious group (Seventh Day Adventists) in Coventry... Nick Pilley help me out here! I never did become converted to the religion in question but definitely was hooked on the music - mainly folk of a contemporary nature at that time. Some time after that I encountered a wider range of both trad and contemporary, plus a fair degree of resident Irish, on moving to Leeds to go to University. All downhill from there!
