Thread Name: .the Ian Campbell Folk Group
Subject: RE: .the Ian Campbell Folk Group
Fond rememberances of the Campbells include Ian introducing a guitarist who had an Ovation guitar as, "a man playing half a Japanese canoe". Other memories include the session at the Station in Kings Heath in Birmingham where I occasionally played with the resident band. All the Campbells were regulars including old Dave and Betty who were easily coaxed to sing. The UB40s were also in evidence. On one occasion when they were all called upon to do a family turn someone from the audience called for a request........Ians response was "over 600 songs in our repertoire and you want the one in bloody Swahili.....................good times
