After a gig by resident band The Men, Bob Dylan comes onstage for an impromptu “folk-twist” jam session – attended only by Troubadour staff. Shortly afterward, Dylan makes pop music history by switching from folk to folk-rock.
It’s also the place where Private Eye was first set up, where Bob Dylan played his first London gigs,
Bob Dylan first arrived in London in 1963, for instance, he came with one written instruction from Pete Seeger: 'Find The Troubadour. Ask for Anthea.') He did both and she promptly shoved him on-stage on what was a talent night, sleeping on her floor for the next few nights while she found him accomodation and put him in touch with folk club bookers. Their friendship would endure through the years.
“Grossman was already in London, along with the singer Odetta, and saw Dylan put up in the raffish Mayfair Hotel near Berkeley Square. That first evening, the singer set about exploring the network of London folk clubs, visiting a different one almost every evening for two weeks: Bunjies Coffee House, possibly the Establishment and Les Cousins, certainly the Roundhouse and the celebrated Troubadour on Cromwell Road, where he headed after a tip-off from the American folk revivalist Pete Seeger.”
