Subject: The Crypt Folk Club and the old woman singer

The crypt Folk Club in St.Martins in the Fields Trafalgar square used to be run by the Rev. Ron Swan in the 1970's. It was run to benefit the homeless. I caught the end of the film Darling (Julie Christie 1965) and there was the old beggar woman singing Santa Lucia, in Piccadilly circus. She was classically trained and used to come down to the Crypt folk club and sing Danny Boy. Once she had a wonderful voice. The booze and sleeping rough must have seen her off years ago, however I am ashamed to say I can't even remember her name. Does anybody remember the club, and the old girl singing? There but for fortune etc. etc.

The name Meg has come into my mind, but I could be completely wrong about that - it was a long time ago......

I went once or twice but don't remember this particular lady, then again, I was a student from out of London and knew nothing and no-one.

Is she the woman who Colum Sands mentions in Busker?

Could be! Meg does sound familiar. I suppose I was hoping for a story from someone who knew her. I had not thought about her for years until I saw the end of that movie.
