GUEST,Hootenanny Review: All in the Downs (book by Shirley Collins) (18) RE: Billy Bragg on Shirley Collins' new book 21 Jun 18

Thanks for pointing out the review Vic.

As someone who regularly attended and later ran a Soho club in the late 50's which operated under the title Ballads & Blues I am intrigued to know where the club which Shirley refers to as Folk & Blues operated at the same time. I don't recall ever hearing of it. I find the knife story a little hard to believe.

She also apparently was not a fan of MacColl at that time and vice versa but was quite willing to sit and sing alongside him on record and in a publicity shot in The Ramblers skiffle group in 1957.
