Terry McDonald History of British Folk Guitar (94* d) RE: History of British Folk Guitar 17 Jan 10


Skiffle clubs in 1954? Wasn't Rock Island Line recorded at the Royal Festival Hall (Chris Barber concert)in 1954 and Ken Colyer's 'Take This Hammer'about the same time. Lonnie's single of Rock Island Line came out in 1955 and suddenly the word 'skiffle' entered the language. I'm surprised that there were 'Skiffle Clubs' before 1955.

Blues a la Alexis Korner in 1955 - 1955's not the 'early 50s as far as I'm concerned........'
