The Beatles From Us To You

 

On the afternoon of July 6, 1957, The Quarrymen skiffle group, led by John Lennon, played at the Garden Fete of St Peter's Church, Woolton, Liverpool. Shiffle= jazz, blues, folk.

The Quarrymen consisted of John Lennon (vocals, guitar), Eric Griffiths (guitar), Colin Hanton (drums), Rod Davies (banjo), Pete Shotton (washboard) and Len Garry (tea chest bass).

After their performance, 16 year old John Lennon was introduced to 15 year old Paul McCartney. Paul showed John how to tune a guitar and then sang Eddie Cochran's Twenty Flight Rock. John was so impressed, that soon after, he asked Paul to join The Quarrymen.
