FTX-147 - WAIT TO-DAY - UNTIL TO-MORROW - Clare CLAYTON and the KilBrides

Clare's introduction to singing was during the annual St Dominic's day celebrations. Her father, as a silk weaver and church vestment maker, was a member of The Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic, a group of Catholic craftsmen working near Ditchling in Sussex. The Guild celebrated with a morning service in the chapel, an afternoon of sports and then in the evening, beer and refreshments followed by a sing song. Her move into singing in Folk clubs came via Square Dancing where the Benacre Band provided the music and the misses Kathleen Church Bliss and Elsie Whiteman encouraged her singing. In the early 60s she and her two brothers, Thomas and Gilbert KilBride sang at the Crawley Folk Festival and the three of them became residents at the Brighton Ballads and Blues club. She participated in the Keele Folk Festival in 1966, Loughborough several years later and, at the Bromyard Festival in 1989.
