Folkus Nights with Margaret Walters - Part 1

From the Archives - Margaret Walters collection ... when the BMC theme nights moved to Tritton Hall, I became involved in running those “Folkus” nights every month for about 6 years. I would select a topic, choose an artist/s to do about 30 minutes on the theme and plough through my songbooks seeking out as many relevant songs I could find. It was a wonderful way to learn a lot of material. I remember a night of songs of coal with Bob and Margaret Fagan.

Margaret only kept her preparation & publicity notes between February 1983 & April 1984, and selected pages are posted below. One of Bob Bolton's music folders included his preparation for April 1984 Folkus night so those pages are also included.
