Edmond Best Folkies from out of Greater Manchester (151* d) RE: Best Folkies from out of Greater Manchester 26 Apr 07


The oul' memory ain't what it used to be.

Jack and Lynn Taylor's club (see previous post) was in the Waggon & Horses, Bridge Street. Harry Boardman (God be good to him) also had a club there, as did Frank Duffy (ditto). The Gents (? !) was wherever you wanted it to be, before the landlady was re-decorated by the Brewery, and up went the dreaded notice : NO OVERALLS.

Which, of course, was interpreted by the landlord (tw*t) as no jeans.

Did I mention Tom Yates ? Stockport had a thriving scene. Indeed, the first time I ever saw Martin Carthy was October 9th 1966 at the Navigation, top of Lancashire Hill.

Iam Jentle ; Gray, Bob and Bri ; Mary and Sheila ; Joe Harrison ; Leo and Geek ; Tony Martin who played 'Anji' even better than Davy Graham IMO. Heigh ho. Bryn Pugh
