At the rear of the Institute was The ‘Jug ‘O Punch Folk Club,
which thrived in the 60’s. on Thursday nights.
The club was run by Ian Campbell,
for me the most under-rated influence in folk music
and a man whose influence rates alongside that of Ewan MacColl.
The Ian Campbell Folk Group included the great
Dave Swarbrick, Ian’s sister Lorna –
whose singing was unsurpassed in Britain
and the late John Dunkerley.
The group had also included one Dave Phillips,
and later Dave Pegg on bass, who was to join Jethro Tull,
and Fairport Convention
