Despite almost no advertising, the small turnout exceeded expectations, supplemented later by two men from Spain and Brazil, with their English companion. One of our Hispanic friends rendered a couple of songs in his native Portuguese, including one which referred [in English] to Dylan’s Like A Rolling Stone, MacCartney’s Blackbird and at least one more English song. Offerings by Jon Ellis [his own poem], Flanders & Swann, Jesse Fuller, Clive James & Pete Atkin, Ian Johnson [another of our number], Danny Kaye, Steve Knightley, Jez Lowe, Spike Milligan, John Prine, Paul Roberts [Reading-based songwriter], Leon Rosselson, John Tams, Pete Seeger (marking his centenary) and others, including those unavoidable acoustic music stalwarts Anon. & Trad., filled the rest of the evening.
