John has been supported by many friends and musicians in Merseyside over the years. The current, regular co-hosts at Bromborough Folk Club include Steve Barker, Gerry Ffrench, Julian Pellant and a regular guest host from Maghull Folk Club, Paul ‘Formby’ Robinson.
A well run club, a full, lively and loyal audience, performers and supporters, including the mighty (Irish) Bara-brith maker, Marie Nichols. Our resident Shanty Crew, ‘Port Sunlight Sea Dogs’ enjoy a popular high profile in Merseyside. Other ‘Bromfolkers’ have successful bands themselves, and are well supported at their own events. Liverpool and Wirral. Floor singers are always welcome. Bromborough Folk Club rarely charges entry, it survives on the generosity of donations to the raffle, and is always generous with prizes!
