GUEST,Derek Schofield Folk Clubs, Greater Manchester 1960-99 (208* d) RE: Folk Clubs, Greater Manchester 1960-99 12 Mar 15


Like many others, I was saddened to hear of the death of the writer of many many books on folk song, history and folklore, Roy Palmer (see separate thread). Roy was at university in Manchester, and had recently recalled singing The Foggy Dew at a student gathering in 1950. He was later involved with Harry and Lesley Boardman in the very early folk song gatherings in Manchester. Does anyone remember that far back, or know anyone still around who was involved with clubs with Harry and Roy in the early 1950s?
