Looking for Mike Harding's Bits

Manchester District Music Archive is putting on an exhibition at the The Lowry starting at the end of September.  One of the curators involved in the exhibition is Mike Harding, who is exploring his favourite moments of his early career on the North West folk scene.

The Archive is on the look out for any Mike Harding related artefacts - tickets, photos, programs, handbills etc which might be included in the exhibition.   In particular, Mike has mentioned his early folk nights at The Old House At Home pub in Blackley, and hearing Harry Boardman for the first time in the Old Pack Horse pub.  Also Manchester Sports Guild and the Anti Fascist concerts at the Free Trade Hall with MacColl and Seeger.

If anyone can help with this search then get in touch with  Manchester District Music Archive at the link below.
