Folk At The KB continued through 1973 with several regular support acts: Causeway Folk, Tin Wind, The Paddies, Monolug & Raz.
The Change/Air were the main Ballroom support residents.
Mott The Hoople were billed to return on Sunday 14/01/1973 but were cancelled.
Cliff Richard's appearance on Sunday afternoon 4th February 1973 was a gospel rally charity fundraiser for overseas missionary work by 'TEAR' (The Evangelical Alliance Relief fund) rather than a 'pop' concert. This was the same year as he represented Britain in the Eurovision Song Contest (for the second time in five years) and he was also appearing weekly on the Cilla Black show at this time. He was invited by The Dunfermline Christian Action Group and there were more than 1000 seated fans present at the sold-out event which raised approx £100. (A decent sum in 1973).
Was Tuesday 20th February 1973 Barbara Dickson's only appearance at the Ballroom?
Sunday 22nd April 1973 and Wizzard are billed to appear. They turned up,... looked the stage over, decided it was too small and left! Perhaps unsurprising really considering their eight-piece double-drum kit line-up, complete with on-stage appearances by other costumed performers. Still it's strange because Roy had played here three times before with The Move and so knew the venue. However, the support (The Flying Hat Band) moved in and by all accounts were very good. Here's the advert!
Highlights this year included:
The Average White Band
