I don't use social media sites but on hearing of the death of Acker Bilk I wondered if I had remembered correctly, and if I would be able to find on-line, that the folk group I was in then had opened the show on the night of May 20th 1962 when Acker Bilk and his band appeared at the St Andrew's Halls Glasgow.


I did not find the answer but the person who might have it is  Mary McGonigal of Particks People  She had written 'I went to see him and his band yonks ago in the St Andrew's Halls in Glasgow, before the fire of course!
