Still on about Billy Connolly, this time his Big Yin stage persona (banana boots etc.) Does anyone recall any other folk performers who wore eyecatching stage costumes?

Or it might be the opposite as in the legend of Lomax insisting that Leadbelly wear prison stripes.

Never having known any of the Young Tradition at that time I never knew how much was stage kit. At 17 I did think that they looked pretty cool.

Utah Phillips was always the best dressed folkie I have ever known. Although sometimes he would would wear a long multi-collared caftan in hot weather at festivals, looking, for all the world like Moses preparing to part the Red Sea.

Re: Leadbelly and prison stripes. That was Lomax Sr, as I recall. He was later regretful about that - again, as I recall.

Not particularly flamboyant but could you imagine Jez Lowe without his "hoops"?

Surely every Folk Club had Star Changing Rooms, Makeup Artists and a Costume Department?

Caller Chris Turner (now retired). Although it could be said that as M.C. he needed to stand out in a crowd whose dress, especially at festivals, might not be exactly described as staid.

The klezmer clarinetist Naftule Brandwein used to perform in a suit covered in lightbulbs wired up to the mains.

It would be hard to ignore the accordionist Renee de la Prade.
