Welcome to the Virtual Folk Club
Here is compiled a wide range of sound and video recordings from as long ago as the mid 1970s.
Of course, given the age of some of the earlier recordings, the quality is, to say the least, 'variable' but regardless of the quality the content is a valuable record of performers and venues which provided the opportunity for thousands of people to perform, listen socialise and share their interest in live Folk Music.

In November 1975 'Pint 'n' Half' (Martin Gittins and Rick Rybicki) stood in for Mike Canavan to play a gig at a small back street pub in Salford. They were immediately re-booked for a return gig in December and, they were so taken by the venue, they agreed with the landlord 'One-Armed Wally' Marshall that they agreed to try a regular weekly Folk Club starting in January of the following year. and so The Legend was born.
In the 21 years that followed the Star Inn Folk Club hosted a guest performer EVERY WEEK - a total of 1149 nights of live music, a record unsurpassed in recent times.
Residents in the beginning were Pint 'n' Half and 'Johnny Crescendo' (Alan Houldsworth) although Alan left after the first year or so. Later, when Rick moved to Todmorden and 'Pint 'n' Half was dissolved, Martin continued alone for several years before teaming up with long-time mate Bob Ashworth for the remaining years.
Below is a small selection of nights from the club including the last 40 minutes of the very last night (which featured John Cartain, who had been the guest on the very first night, among a crowd of other performers.)
