Thread Name: Newcastle Folk Clubs of the 1970s
Subject: RE: Newcastle Folk Clubs of the 1970s
Speciality Ken - I was a regular at The Royal Turf, Felling from 1966 to its closing in 1969 becoming a resident and committee member in 1967. Andy did run the club with residents Tony Wilson, Alex McKie, Maureen Stubbs and Liz Mogie (now Liz Sobell), Di Dingwall (now Di Henderson) and later Tony Davies.
Rocky Byron was the Calypso singer you mentioned.
After the club closed I became involved with South Tyne Folk and Blues, South Shields for the next ten years.
