Thread Name: What are your memories of MSG Folk Club
Subject: RE: What are your memories of MSG Folk Club
Barry Oates …. what year was your story about Jenks? I booked Martin Carthy for Manchester University Folk Club in 1972 and had no difficulty... it could be that Jenks had him booked with a clause prohibiting Martin from performing within a certain radius of MSG within a specific time period because of a booking at MSG. I seem to remember that was common … but Jenks knew the financial benefits of booking someone into MSG on a Saturday evening, and then arranging a Sunday night booking elsewhere in Lancashire/Cheshire. Split the travelling expenses.
