Subject: RE: Folklore: Country music in 1970s UK folk clubs
It was Joe Steads' label. Originally 'Sweet Folk all' Joe was a massive fan of Pete Seeger and started distributing and I think recording American acoustic (I think again) country singers as 'Sweet Folk and Country'. I do not remember any acts touring the folk clubs, but that is not reliable. I quite like some country music, but would not have paid money to see them. There is a full listing of FSA recordings on line. I saw Joe just before he died and was able to thank him again for supplying me with the contacts for two successful tours of the USA in the 1980's.
