Leicester hasn't actually had a 'Folk Club' for about 15 years now, although it has acoustic clubs.

A club has just been started at the Barley Mow pub, on the first Friday of the month. Although not exclusively folk, that will be the central focus. Keith Kendrick will be filling the guest slot for December.

If you want further details contact Phil on 07517 401221 or email :_

Well - that brought back memories! When I was a student (in Leeds) in 1964, I spent 3 months in Leicester on a work placement. I lived at the YMCA Hostel in London Rad, which was next to a pub called, if memory serves, the "Victoria". The pub had an upstairs bar, reached by a separate staircase in the yard, and this was the venue for music on 2 or 3 nights each week. Folk on a Friday, Blues on a Saturday and Jazz on a Sunday - I supplemented ny grant by working in the bar on music nights. The owner was an ex-army captain called Tony Collis - a chap with a handlebar moustache who'd run mule trains in Crete during the war, and he was ably assisted by a huge, beaming barman from Co. Claire called Brendan.

I saw many great performers at the "Vic" - anyone else old enough to recall the place?

Well done and good luck, I have lived in New Zealand since 1993,when I left Leicester the folk scene was healthy enough. Is it a weekly club, I am coming back to England in Dec, any chance of a floor spot. Ken Wilson ran a club at the Barley mow , for a while.
All the best
Alan Stacey.

Good to hear from you ,Al.

The club is first Friday of the month.

Ken W is still going strong -he does a session every Monday at the Black Horse on Braunstone Gate and various other places.

The music scene is still thriving in both city and county, though, as I put in the original post this new venture is nominally a Folk Club. If you're around at the beginning of Dec, give Phil a ring or email (details in original post).

Also if you want to know what's going on at any time around L use this link:-

Hope to see you in December!

Hello Mr Stacey,

I know a number of your fans from the Rothley/ Birstall direction would be more than pleased to catch up with you in December if you do set out your stall. Please do keep us posted on your plans.

In the meantime regards to Conor.

They must have the most offensive name for a group that I have ever seen or heard. Check out the origins in Aussie slang as that is where they got it from. They might be o k but not with a name like this.

OK Mad Spaniel

"Norcs" is Aussie slang for a woman's breasts
"alordie" means Wow!

Put the two together and you get a comment you might make when a lady of comely proportions walks past

come on let's vote - who finds that the most offensive group name they have ever seen or heard ?

I vote no - and additionally that such a comment is nonsense

This Friday the club is welcoming Keith Kendrick as guest -starts at 9.00 in the Ale Loft at the Barley Mow. It's amazing how you can be around the folk scene for years and not see people.

I've never actually seem Keith in the flesh but have heard a lot about him and am really looking forward to it.
