The Troubadour in Waterloo Street, Clifton, has been described as the most famous and influential folk club outside London. Running from Friday 6 October 1966 until closure in 1971, it hosted performances by John Martyn, Sandy Denny, the Incredible String Band, Bert Jansch, Al Stewart, the Watersons and pretty much everyone who was anyone in what turned out to be the golden age of British acoustic music.

The Troubadour exhibition is currently on show in the Doric Room (Crypt bar) at St George’s Bristol until 28 October. Here’s a sneak preview of some of the fascinating photographs on show.
