Joni Mitchell began playing the basement of the Penny Farthing (known as the Dungeon) but would later frequent the main stage as the venue switched to more folk offerings. This change brought The Stormy Clovers, a pop folk band that played more upbeat versions of Gordon Lightfoot songs as well as their own at the Penny Farthing. They were also notable for bringing Leonard Cohen into the limelight as they were the first to perform songs that he wrote such as "Suzanne" and Cohen would even sing duets with their lead singer - Susan Jains - who John McHugh speculated that he was in love with. Singer songwriter Bruce Cockburn also played the club as a solo artist, before and after he was in the aforementioned 3's a Crowd. Other notable musicians who played the venue include Puerto Rican singer songwriter Jose Feliciano and blues-man John Lee Hooker.
