Thread Name: .the Ian Campbell Folk Group
Subject: RE: .the Ian Campbell Folk Group
The first time I went out to see a real Folk-singer was in ... about 1968, when I was slightly under age. I went to the MEB Social Club in Green Lane, Walsall, to see ... someone whose name escapes me -- and proabaly everybody else -- completely. She was ill, so they got Ian Cambell and Brian Clark to cover for her. And I was a lost soul from that day forward ...

Just for the record, there was a boom in female folkies just then. They all had long straight hair (think of Jacqui McShea, Julie Felix). David Jacobs had an early evening tv show on BBC1 called, with great inspiration, The Wednesday Show (every Wednesday). His resident folkie was ... this young lady. No idea who she was, or what happened to her.
