Ok it might not be folklore but am wondering if anyone has heard of these singers who worked on the British Folk Scene in the 60s
Also Roger Knowles and The Clutha all of whom played the Bothy Folk Club in Southport.

The names are all familiar to me, but not heard for some years.

Rosemary and Hugh conjure up a picture of a well dressed gent in a suit with a well trimmed beard (I guess that would be Hugh!)

Roger Knowles is linked in my memory with Nick Strutt and also Pete Stanley, but some years back now.

If I could recall which box my old copies of "Spin", "Folk Review", "Sing", "Club Folk" etc were in I could probably dig out photos.

I remember the Gentlemans singing at Surbiton Folk Club in the late-60s. Haven't heard of them since then.

They married and went to live in Edinburg in the early 60s, where they still are. They and I formed the Wayfarers song trio and broadcast on childrens hour (radio) for a while

I knew them well in the 60s and made up some tapes for them to send to the BBC. I lost touch with them when they moved to Scotland. I still have recordings of "Lay the bent", "Come here me little Jackie", "I never will marry", "Jenny Jenkins", Matty Grove", and others. I should love to see them again.

Yes - happy memories of them both as people and as singers. If you ask for a song, try Peggy Gordon! (I can still hear them singing that song in my head!

I lived with them as an exchange student in the spring of 1978. They hadn't sung in years, and I couldn't get them to, but they had a great record collection, and were very supportive of my record-collecting and performing in the local folk clubs in Edinburgh (I, a 20-year-old American). They sent me Christmas cards for years, but I haven't heard from them lately.
