GUEST,banjoman BBC Life time Award for the Spinners? (80* d) RE: BBC Life time Award for the Spinners? 21 Jan 07

Count me in on any move to make a lifetime award to the Spinners.
As someone who was part of the Folk Scene in Liverpool in the early days, I was privileged to meet them and to support their club at the Gregsons Well. It is worth pointing out that many of the other so - called contenders (Watersons etc) I first saw at the Spinners Club.
Their regular concerts at the Phiharmonic Hall drew large audiences , mainly of non -folkies, many of whom went on to appreciate the genre.
Some may question their musicality etc, but it is worth knowing that they had other talents as well.
Hughie Jones - a fine guitar/banjo player and songwriter.
Tony - a great jazz singer and banjo player
Cliff (plus wife) great exponents of music hall songs
Mick - again a songwriter who was also a fine teacher.
Enough said?
