Tom and all,
Back in the sixties when I was living in Manchester I was taken to a
Connolly Association social. The entertainment for the evening was a man
who sat down, took a strange looking animal out of a box and proceeded to
torture it: the unfortunate creature responded with the most heart-rending
shrieks and howls.
I later learned that the entertainer was Felix Doran, and I have often
regretted that I never really took advantage of the fact the he played in my
local pub every Suday morning - but I put that down to living and learning.

Ewan McColl & Peggy Seeger, Dominic Behan played a few times at the
Lincoln Folk Club upstairs at the Turk's Head in the early sixties. I
was playing in a blues band at the time but a couple of us in the band
were very interested in "folk music", and went every Sunday night for a
listen. Being of a tender age, and deep into Lightnin' Hopkins, Little
Walter, Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson etc., we found Ewan and Peggy
immensely boring I'm afraid, droning on and on, but Dominic Behan seemed
cool. Looking back though I'm glad I heard them sing
