We have been trying to compile some of the folk clubs in Hamilton, Ontario during the sixties.
We can recall attending The Black Swan, The Happy Medium and The Ebony Knight. Was there a Bohemian Embassy in Hamilton? I know there was one in Toronto. There was a club in a basement on Emerson Street in West Hamilton whose name I can't recall.

I don't have any information about the clubs you mentioned but just wanted to ask if you remember if Canadian folk singer, Bonnie Dobson ever sang at any of those clubs? I believe in those days she lived in Toronto but not sure what clubs she sang at. Or Joni Mitchell as I kninow

OOPs, my message accidently got sent before I finished my message.

To finish my sentence, I was trying to type that Joni Mitchell may have played at some of those clubs in early/mid-60's before she ever released an album and famous. Do you remember if Joni played any of those clubs in those days?

The first time I saw Joni Anderson (later Mitchell) was at the 1964 Mariposa Folk Festival with David Rea. It was held in Maple Leaf Stadium.
I believe I saw Bonnie Dobson in Orillia at one of the first Mariposas. I didn't see either of them in Hamilton.
I did see Al Cromwell, Jackie Washington, The Greenbriar Boys, Josh White Jr. and a bunch of other folks at Hamilton clubs.
