Subject: RE: Folklore: Country music in 1970s UK folk clubs
Country Meets Folk was a weekly broadcast which if my memory is correct was broadcast live. It was hosted by Wally Whyton and Jim Lloyd. It took pace at the Playhouse Theatre in London close to the embankment. Resident bass player was session man Brian Brocklehurst. I went along several times usually when Malcolm Price was appearing. Malcolm of course performed a mixture of American folk songs, bluegrass and country eg. Long Black Veil and Money Marbles and Chalk. He also did current songs by American singer songwriters.
Steve Benbow was another performer of Folk material English, Irish and American who appeared.
