       MUSICAL TRADITIONS CLUB Summer  2010 



                                    SUMMER 2010


Friday 4th June    

JOHN FOREMAN,   The Broadsheet King.

A rare performance by this master of mirth and drollery. Songs and paper tearing a specialty.  

Veteran performer John Foreman, born near Euston station, regards himself as a true London Cockney.  John's songs were learned from his parents or from visiting the old Music Halls, "whenever he had a bob or two". He got more from watching and performing at Unity Theatre, the working man's theatre.  In his early days he worked as a doorman at The Metropolitan in the Edgware Road, and as a bottler with a Punch-and-Judy man, Professor Alexander. John also used to be a busker, selling his song-sheets in Petticoat Lane. A printer by trade, he is known as ‘The Broadsheet King’, renowned for his song-sheets and broadside publications.
