A detailed history of the club, including all the information on the guests booked, can be found on this website at History of The Black Diamond Folk Club.
Harvey Andrews gave his first public performances at the club on 28th October 1964, prior to his appearance at the Jug of Punch, where his rise to fame really took off. Harvey allowed me to photograph his gig list and payments from October to December, which can be seen below. Mention of a number of Birmingham clubs, including MacDonalds, can bee seen in the Publications Section in the "Broadside" articles. One of the articles published in 1967, was by Ron Wheeler, explaining a bit about the club and what the folk scene was about, this can be seen below.
