I was going through my LP collection at the week-end and came across a number of records from the Sixties/Seventies and I have not heard of the performers in a very long while.

Two of the records were by Bill Foster who was compere at the Centre Folk Club in Hull. I also have a 45rpm record by Sam Ellis - does he still play?

Anyone know of them ??

Hi Joe

Do you mean Bill Foster who was a resi at Louth FC 80s / early 90s? If so I last bumped into Bill in Newark - but that was more than a few years back.

Hello Skribla,

It could be. When I saw him and bought his records it was sometime in the 70's. The Folk Club in Hull was on a Sunday Night which clashed with Folk Union One and was run (I believe) by Barry Nettleton who later was involved with Hull Truck Theatre ??

I am at work now but one of the records I have is called 'Beamer Hill' (I think). I believe he was a teacher at some point has one of of his songs was about being a teacher of children.

He was quite an accomplished singer. I was just going through some of my old LP's that have not seen the light of day for some years. I shall have to play them (and some others) when I am not at work and see if they are has I remember them.
