Subject: RE: Origins: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
Nice one Banjoman. They were a great influence, turned me on to folk music probably more than anyone - great atmosphere at their Free Trade Hall gigs - usually a sell-out. Great thing about them was theire warmth and how they liked to direct their music at a whole family audience 'the family of man' to quote one of their album titles. Saw Hughie last year and he's as good as ever - great yarn 'spiinner' too
