Thread Name: Birmingham 1970
Subject: RE: Birmingham (UK) 1970 - Jug o' Punch recording
Hello,

I originally sent in the request to Folkwaves when my wife was ill. Just to confuse you all, I now think it may have been August 1971 as we only met on the 17th August 1970 and I can't see her parents letting me take their 17 year old daughter off to the big city so soon after we met.

Unfortunately Sue died at the end of May, so the urgency is now off, but I would still like to hear the recording if anyone can find it. I did do a single tape of her on a domestic reel-to-reel recorder, but needless to say I can't find it anywhere.

Anyone who sat within ten rows of her at any of the festivals we attended in the last 35 years will have heard Sue sing, but I think the Jug O'Punch was the only time she got up on stage to sing solo.

In those days she was Sue Campbell, though no relation to the Ian Campbell Folk Group!
