Date: 11 Dec 06 - 06:35 PM

The Bothy Folk Club (est 1965), is on the move again. After 3yrs in our current location we are having to move & have found a nice new venue.
So from Sunday 7th January 2007 (re-launch night with lots of surprise guests), the Bothy Folk Club will be at...
The Park Golf Club, Park Rd West, Southport, PR98NP.
Full details on website Bothy Folk Club including a map. Also we now have the guest list for most of 2007 online.
Cheers

Good luck to the Bothy at its new venue; still real ale and real music. I remember the Bothy's dark days in the Blundell Arms when the only ale was Tetley smoothflow (although the music was always good). Born to rock, drink to roll.

Excellent news. The Shelbourne Hotel has been a great venue for the Bothy (easily one of the country's finest folk clubs!) but turned out not to be the permanent home the club needs. I'm confident that the club's stay at the Park Golf Club will be a long and successful one.

If you haven't experienced the Bothy before, or it's been a while since your last visit, why not join us at the "relaunch" on 7th January?

The Bothy Folk Club ; a little history

The club opened in April 1965, in the Railway Hotel (now demolished), Chapel St, Southport. The first residents were the Bothy Folk Group -- Christine Jones, Tony Wilson (later known as Tony Molyneux), Stan Ambrose, Dave Boardman -- who already ran a club in the Cattle Market pub, Liverpool; the success of the Southport venture led them to concentrate all their efforts there.
The word 'bothy' comes from the Scots, and refers traditionally to the huts in which shepherds found shelter while out on the hills with their sheep; the vibrant culture in which they and other agricultural labourers moved also produced numerous 'bothy ballads' which celebrated work, love, death and so on. The first residents at the Southport venue chose the name to reflect their interest in traditional song, and to project the club as a haven for singers and musicians; ironically, it also came to reflect the club's somewhat itinerant beginnings, for within six weeks the Bothy, in search of a larger room, moved from the Railway Hotel to the Blundell Arms, Upper Aughton Rd, in the Spring of 1965.
The new venue appeared permanent, but in January 2004 the club moved again, this time to the Shelbourne Hotel, on Southport's famous Lord St. There the club celebrated its 40th birthday in April 2005. Then in the winter of 2006, with the Shelbourne being transformed into luxury flats, the Bothy negotiated a move to the other end of town, finding a new home at the Park Golf Club, Park Road West, Southport.

From the outset, the members of the Bothy Folk Group were committed not only to bringing the best national and international folk singers and musicians to the club, but also to encouraging local performers, thus establishing the pattern of alternate guest nights and singers nights which still operates. This policy has paid off, not least in that the resident panel has been regularly replenished from a pool of performers who first appeared as 'floor' singers. Attendances have fluctuated but the club has enjoyed good support not only from Southport but also from Lancashire in general and Liverpool in particular; the social life of the club has also led to the formation of the Southport Swords dance team and the Argarmeles Clog team, as well as to regular informal song and music sessions in various local pubs. The club will celebrate its 50th birthday in 2015; do come and visit before then! (KL)

I'm just taking a break from sticking little yellow "new venue, same quality"-type Able-labels on 2500 flyers! The roll call of 'surprise' guests for the relaunch night is growing and all in all, we face the future with optimism!To infinity and beyond eh?!
Visited Shelbourne today and already the building site perimeter boarding is being erected. We will be there though, this Sunday for the final Shelly night, featuring plenty of Hot and not a little Pot!
Cheers Kevin, for posting that historical record above. Btw, there's an absorbing feature on Bothy Ballad origins and recent developments in the genre, in the current issue of The Folk Music Journal.

This Guest List project is on-going - thanx for reminding me. I DID start a date by date list which was taking ages and somewhere in the mid-80s I lost momentum! WILL finish - promise. It's on file. Nag me!
To my eternal pride, in the early days we had real Bothy singers - Davie Stewart and Jimmy McBeath as guests plus the Stewarts Of Blair, Jeannie Robertson, Fred Jordan, Stan Hugill and well, you get the picture. There weren't many 'revivalists' around back then - and I think that brief names-check reflects the fact.

Excellent club, and I've played there in a few different guises, I can tell you. Good clubs usually have strong resident performers, and the Bothy is a fine example.

Following my first booking there - many years ago and in front of a sparse audience - Clive sent me a handwritten letter a few days later along the lines of: "Thanks for your performance at the Bothy; there may have been only twenty there, but you played like it was a hundred." I've never forgotten that - both the kind gesture and the implied advice.

Best of luck in the new venue (I hope to see it sometime!).

Anymore of this and we'll have to look for bigger premises already - to encompass our collective swelled head!!!!
There's cask beer at the new homeplace incidentally, separate room, stage & curtains(ta-rah)and views on a Summer's evening over the rolling greens. I have to say too, that it's a 'Peoples' Golf Club - if such a thing there be, 'cos it's part of Southport's Municipal Links infrastructure, so don't run away with the idea that we've repositioned the brand TOO much!
Last night at the Shelbourne this Sunday - plenty of Hot and not a little Pot! Come on down and meet the folks!

Does any other Folk Club meet at a golf club? And don't forget the stay the Club had at Our Lady of Lourdes Club while the room at the Blundell was repaired. I hesitate to say done up. Like the old Railway Hotel, OLOL has gone. The old part is a childminding place, and the bit that used to be a bank became a cafe, and despite the signs still being there hasn't been open all year. At least the Blundell is still up and running, or the new landlords might feel worried about their future....

Pat Batty's Friday Club at Westhoughton has been "poshing" it up for years at a Golf Club since moving from the 'Red Lion.' Folk Club Of The Year (Radio 2 Folk Awards 2000) doncha know? One thing I've noticed over recent months, is the number of Clubs relocating to RAFA Clubs, Bowling Pavilions and the like. It must be a reflection on the few old-style pubs left with separate function rooms - and certainly pubs that you'd want to go to anyway. That was my discovery during this Autumn's search - it's all bars, Bacardi Breezers and Skysports wall to wall.
Sad really - should we go and drown our poor selves and have we really lost the last of England?

It's ironic that we should have had such a great attendance (about 90), for the last night at the Shelbourne, maybe the last chance to have some of their super Hot Pot.
I'm sure the catering at the new venue will be as good when we require it.
It sounds like we are going to have a bumper night on the first night at the Park Golf Club on the 7th Jan. See the website for maps & details Bothy Folk Club

Clive, it really is time you joined Mudcat. I could PM you then instead of you thread creeping and me using this as an advertising forum.

(John's wife works in a Nursery. One day when all the little tinies were sitting on the carpet she told them they could go out to play and they were "across the carpet like shot dogs" It's better than the first name we thought of which was Spindrift. "Sounds like a namby pamby 1960's folk band" to quote Tony Barratt from Brewood Folk Club.)

Phew, well I've caught breath a bit now. That was quite a 'first night.' Over 100 of us in, and a happening atmosphere. (yes, I now know how to open the windows!) Sorry for the Summer swelter!
OK, OK I know there's some fine-tuning to be done re. acoustics, noise leakage, seating plan etc. but all in all, most of the feedback has been positive and constructive when it hasn't been. Our hosts were well pleased - with an additional £600 or so over the bar, who can blame 'em? See you all there on Sunday for our good friends, Scolds Bridle? I think we can maybe set the controls for infinity and beyond now, so if I've been stalling any bookings for 2008, all you prospective gigsters for 2008 can now form an orderly queue!

It was and we did! 65-70 audience inc about 10 floor singers + residents.
Bill Whalley & Dave Fletcher next week, standing room only?
Cheers
