PAT TRAVERS AIR CARDBOARD GUITAR  Brilliant guitarist Pat Travers played at the club on Saturday 3rd July 1976 and provided several members of the audience with cut out cardboard guitars so that they could join him on stage. We though that these  unique items had disappeared into the past but one, at least, has survived!                 pat-travers-guitar
