Played a couple of tunes there meself, some time in the late 90s, when the club was at the Garland Ox. It was Pauline Cato and Tom McConville that night. The wicked Mrs Steve had let the MC know, unbeknowns to me, that I had a harmonica in my pocket. Well, what can you do. I played Derwentwater's Farewell/Jimmy Allen/Herd on the Hill, then Carolan's Concerto in the wrong key (I only had a cheapie G harp in my pocket), at point blank notice. I wasn't used to playing standing up, and was tapping my foot on the staging. Unfortunately, the staging was quite flimsy and bounced back up to my foot completely out of time. I think I got away with it, and Tom was very kind about my rather nervous playing. They were both lovely people. It isn't still Vic Legg in charge there, is it?

Vic is still there, there was also a guy called Steve who was a very good guitarist and singer and some good resident performers.
i had a horrendous coach journey down, it took nearly eight hours., but my accomadation for the night was idyllic i was really well looked after by chris and janet ridley.
really i should have gone down a day earlier and spent more time in cornwall, it is very similiar to where i live in west cork.
Steve, the club is now in the band club, in my opinion it is definitely one of the better folk clubs.

The club I started out at was The Tree Inn, in Stratton near Bude. It moved to the Globe Hotel in Bude, before its demise some time in the late 1990s. There is still music at The Tree but it's a session which has diversified somewhat. Sadly, I don't go any more because my hearing isn't good enough to play with lots of plucky stringy thingies combined with the bustling background pub noise. Bodmin is a bit too remote for me, considering I always like a pint and don't like driving home. We went a few times but not recently. I think I can just about put faces to the Ridleys! The Bodmin lot were always strong on singing as I recall. On one occasion we had a get together with them at a neutral venue, :-) the Wellington in Boscastle. There was a bloke there who sang and played the washboard. I still have the washboard he kindly made for my young son, who got quite good on it! The fellow didn't know what a tin whistle was. He called it "pipes"!

A club that I have happy memories of gigs over the years. Always a pleasure to sing there. Very glad to see that Vic Legg is still involved.

Roy, I am sure your memories go back longer than mine, I think played there for the first time about 1981, 34 years.
I missed you at Tenterden, hope you are ok, you were a great performer.

Pete Marlow is the king of the washboard

Some of the regulars were unable to be there due to professional gigs of their own, phew that was a lucky coincidence

Pete Ridley is still in very fine voice and is responsible for the regular Folknews Kernow , a broadsheet of folk song, dance and sessions that take place in the Ducky, he is regarded by FitzPat as one of the best Morris dance melodeon players he has known.

The Bude folk club now meets in the Falcon

Song session at the Wellington, in Boscastle Weds till midnight.

Roger Bryant Hosts a great song sesh on the 3rd Sat of the month at Stithians but it gets very busy so we dont want everyone knowing about it and Sunday the delightful Dreamers folk club at the Sportsman , at Four lanes.

Yes , Bodmin folk club is a real nutowse on Fridays in the Band Room

Chris Ridley, not Pete.Breezy, Bodmin Folk club has a high standard, Steve in particular is a fine singer and guitarist, and Chris Ridley is a good melodeon playerand has been playing for moris for many years.
