Fifty Years of Folk!

The CVFolk Treasury

Here’s an article by Pete Clemons, published in the Coventry Telegraph in 2013 and recalling 50 years of folk clubs in Coventry and surrounding areas.

Some of the info is now (inevitably) out of date but it offers a superb snapshot view of the history of folk clubs in Coventry since the folk revival first made its mark on the city.

The article also acknowledges a series of articles by Pete Willow published in Folks Magazine back in the 70s, offering an account of Fifteen Folkin’ Years from Issues 4 through to 7.
