Re Jim Carroll'a statement

"The club scene was established on a definite form of music - originally introduced by Sharp and co and later revived by the BBC's 1950s extended field trip"

The club that I attended from around 1956 until 1965 was not. It appeared to grow out of the skiffle scene encouraged by Alan Lomax.

In 1961 two of the club's regular singers/songwriters went off to form their own club. From Jim's own admission he did not get into the music until 1966 and I get the impression that that club may have been established in the way he describes.

Can Jim name any other clubs prior to 1961 that were established that way and if so how does he know?
