'The Bread' Folk Club

Constitution Road, Dundee - late 1970s

'The Bread' - long days gone by
Left memories sweer to die
Folk music reached every rafter
Rooms beamed with laughter
Instrumentalists tuned-up
As young lovers sipped from loving-cup

Banjo - guitar - bodhran
Accompanied the penny-whistle man
Fiddlers and Irish pipes would play
Jigs - reels - smooth strathspey
Folk-singers took centre stage
Rendering the 'in-music' of the age

Pray revival
Sparks sweet traditional survival
