Ah, I see my link to Jackie's website has gone rotten. A quick google finds a new home for Jackie's website and an article about her from the Westmorland Gazette which also gives us the sad news that Bridie died a few years ago.

I've just happenned across this site. I have fond memories of both Jackie & Bridie playing at the EMU Club at RAF Sealand in the early 70's. It was to my great delight that I saw them again in the early 80's playing in McTavish'e Kitchen in Oban, I think. The greatest memory was that I ended up on stage playing the wellie for them, much to the surprise of my girlfriend.

It seems like there are still quite a few places selling old folk records. The LP that I've got featuring "There are no lights on our Christmas tree" is "Live at the Philharmonic" and there are a couple of copies on sale at this website.

And this search on Google has a few other websites with Jackie & Bridie records for sale too.

Hope you find a copy.

I used to go to the Coachhouse regularly. Each Thursday evening as I recall. I used to travel over from Wallasey on the bus, train and bus. We used to eat bread,margarine and jam and I think maybe soup and tea before the singing began. I used to get up and sing as did many others. Great times. Also went to the actual Coachhouse for parties from time to time. And was in an early Liverpool Folk Festival. Got recorded too, but I never did get a copy of the album. It was held at the old Bluecoat School in the city.

My mother owned the original Coach House where the folk club started up. I remember going there for a couple of sessions - I must have been only about 9 or 10 but thought it was great fun!
