Clarence's - 15-17 Crown Street, Halifax, West Yorkshire

Gig list 1974
Between 1967 and 1980 Clarence's, Paul Mountain's superb little club in Halifax, played host, in its various guises, to some of the finest and hardest working musicians in the country. Many of these are still recording and performing live gigs today.
The gig lists for these years provide a fascinating diary and insight into the changing musical tastes during the period. Blank dates will be filled in as more information comes to light. Dates and listings have been compiled using press adverts, contracts, Paul's personal notes and memories from many helpful contributors. Bands and artists may have cancelled, pulled out, or even disbanded at the last minute so the listings may not be completely accurate. Some roadies did actually turn up, took a look at the fire escape they had to haul the gear up to the second floor and simply drove away again. Luckily they were very much in the minority.

If you can help, even with any little snippets of detail, reviews, press cuttings, memorabilia or just memories please contact Lily.
