"Regarding the question about Lisa Turner. I cannot remember the song in question but I was there when it happened. He did not reprimand her just suggested that she should sing an English song instead of the one she announced. Lisa refused and stepped down.."Quote Hoot,

So when does a suggestion, Metamorphose to a reprimand.

Without the influence of MacColl and Lloyd, the encouragement of younger revival singers to seek out indigenous traditional material and listen to Traditional singers would not have happened.
This is what the singers club were aiming to achieve.They were also trying to educate younger singers that this was the music of the people, that music was not just commercial tinpan alley pop music. which is why i do not want to go to folk clubs and hear Cliff Pilchard
