There’s a little piece of historical information here about the original Ayr Folk Club in the 1970’s. We’ve been contacted By someone who attended the original club, who said: “the original folk club was in Loudoun Hall. It was run by George McEwan from Maybole. He wrote Connolly’s Welly Boot song. First saw Hamish, McGinn, The Humblebums and many of the worthies of the Scottish folk scene there.”
