Cellar Folk was formed early in 1972 by Steve Mogg, Richard Crook, Mike Brown and John Jennings in the cellar at the Bournebrook Hotel( hence the club name). It met on Sunday nights until November 24th 1973, when it had to move as the cellar  was to be  converted into a posh bar .The club moved to the Junction in Harbourne and changed its  name to Cellar Folk Too, opening  on December 2nd 1973., where they stayed until July 28th 1974. The club then moved to  the Mitre Inn in Stourbridge, opening on August 18th 1974 as The Seven Whistlers Folk Club and known to be still running in December 1984.

A picture of the four originators of the club on their second singers night on 2nd April 1972, can be seen below ( L to R , Richard Crook, Mike Brown Steve Mogg,John Jennings)
