GUEST,Hootenanny UK 60s Folk Club Boom? (1167* d) RE: UK 60s Folk Club Boom? 24 Mar 19

"Les Compagnons de la Chanson" referred to by Goon Harry Secombe as "The Mushrooms of Chance",

I remember seeing his shaving act at The Hackney Empire where some of my very early musical roots came from. Two Ton Bessie O'Shea and her ukelele, Max Wall who Malcolm Price told me owned a lovely old Martin guitar and various other left over artists from the Music Hall era.

I believe one or maybe two people here consider music hall somewhat low-brow and not worthy but that was the material that brought much pleasure to the earlier generations in my family.
