GUEST,Graham Bradshaw Johnny Silvo and Denny Wright (18) RE: Johnny Silvo and Denny Wright 20 Dec 20


Hi John MacKenzie. It was Jack Parkinson on the door - or as Diz used to refer to him - THE Jack Parkinson. Michael Balfour was a regular - Derek and Hazel had their wedding reception at Michael's house on Kingston Hill. Mac Morant was a good singer and guitarist. One of his party pieces was a Tim Hardin song 'Reason to Believe', which was later a big hit for young Rod Stewart (who had also played at the club a couple of times before becoming famous.) I last saw Paddy Marchant the concertina player up at the late lamented Cleethorpe Folk Festival. He was living in the Grimsby/Cleethorpes area. It's a good few years ago so not sure if he's still around. All the others are long since departed this mortal coil.

I don't remember the Folkweave recording. Was this after my time? I was there from about 1965 until 1970 when I moved away. I played with Derek and we went to Stockholm for British Week in 1968, and when we returned Hazel joined us to form the Derek Sarjeant Folk Trio. We played all over the country until my departure in 1970.
