Did a couple of tunes at the Woody Guthrie Folk Club in Liverpool last night. A folk club so popular that you have to buy tickets before hand even if there is no guest artist playing! It’s in a nice pub too, The Ship and Mitre.
They have a great atmosphere there, I can imagine Pete Seeger playing places just like that in the 50s. There was mention of disappointment that they never find themselves under surveillance by the government the theory is because no one attending wears red plaid shirts. It’s run by a local radical songwriter Alun Parry who writes contemporary topical songs and get’s everyone fired up to sing along. And you get your entry fee back if you sing something. Preferably a song of struggle.
Last Thursday of each month.
