Folk Britannia

Excellent programme on BBC Four: Folk Britannia. I can feel another reminiscence coming on! One of the first records I ever bought was an EP by A L Lloyd called 'All for me grog' or something. Bury Folk Club in The George on Kay Gardens (with the goldfish tank in the ceiling) was an excuse to go into a pub legally! I even played my grandad's mandolin there, badly! And it was at UoS Folk Club at Battersea where me and Chris Brunt played the blues (me on harmonica), which led to the formation of Helix.
