In the early 1970s' I visited Copenhagen, Denmark with my parents.
I remember finding this place one night in the city center called
The Purple Onion. It was a folk music club when I was there.
Just a small folk club or coffeehouse but I don't really remember too much about it; how long it was there, etc. I was just a young girl in my teens but already liked folk music and found this club one night when my parent's and I were walking around looking at the shops.
Then I went back the next night and heard some good folk singers (not known singers.)
I would love to hear about anyone that remembers this place and whatever information you may have about it.
The name of the place really stood out because I never liked onions so the name, The Purple Onion (folk club) has stayed in my memory.
I remember when I first went into the club I was hoping I wouldn't be smelling any onions. :-)))

ARe you sure it wasn't Jo Banks' dive called the Purple Door? I played there a few times, if so. He was a photographer, and his young son was one of the most amazing blues players I'd ever heard
