Hi there,

I am looking to find a man who played a folk gig in Folkestone in 1963, who is my mother's real father. We believe he played at the Prince of Wales pub. His name was Eddie or Edward (don't know his full name), he had light brown hair, and was part of a two piece band (name also unknown). Apparently the music had hippy/protest/folk vibes. Let me know if this rings a bell at all, for you or anyone you know, it would be of much help.

Many thanks!

Zoe: have you tried posting this message on a few of the Folkestone pages on Facebook? There are quite a few with a much bigger readership than here, you might have better luck tracking him down. A good one is XX Blast From The Past XX or We Love Folkestone
