Subject: Photos of the 70's Folk Scene in Bedford (UK)?
From: Hovering Bob
Date: 10 Mar 10 - 07:47 AM

I left Bedford in 1977 but was heavily involved in the folk scene there for several years prior to that. After some 33 years the trio 'Kinsfolk,' of which I was a member, are getting together again, if only on an ad hoc basis. We were quite active in the local scene back in those days, running concerts and a folk club in Kempston.
Sadly we have no photos of us, or any other Bedfordian Folkies from those days.
Does anyone remember 'Kinsfolk' and do you by any chance have any photos of the group?
Long shot, I know, but worth a try.

'Kinsfolk' were myself, Bob Hambleton and Roy and Louise Martin. The group folded in 1977 when I moved down to Reading with work, (a necessary but disgusting practice I've managed to dispense with!) Roy and Louise shortly after moved to Crawley. We lost touch for over thirty years until, thanks to the interweb, I was able to find them again. I'm pleased to say that we have decided to reform 'Kinsfolk' if only for a single concert on 20th March down in Horsham.
