GUEST,Guest - Lin Folk Clubs London 1960s & 70s (608* d) RE: Folk Clubs London 1960s & 70s 01 Mar 10


When I was on holiday in London I used to frequent The Troubadour in Earl's Court a lot. Loved their coffee! Then I would go downstairs to the Singer's night to hear various folk singers. I was not a singer but I did manage to muster up my courage and read a few poems there one night.
The club where I hung out the most was at Bunjies Folk Cellar.
So easy to get there on the Tube from my hotel and get back again afterwards. I really loved Bunjies! I went there a lot! I remember some great singers there, especially the folk duo, Brackenwood who had a regular floor spot. Their names were Jez & Clive but don't recall their sirnames. Also used to go there to hear a great singer named Rhatch. He had a really good voice and great guitar player!!
Another guy who comes to mind that I used to enjoy listening to was Mike Lee. He was a big Ralph McTell fan and used to sing many of his songs, doing really great covers.
I also remember a girl named Sippy who was a very good singer.
Bunjies was my favourite place! Does anyone remember these particular singers?
The Greek Lasagne was great too! I hear that Bunjies is no longer a folk club for many years now but don't know when it shut down for folk music.
