Formed in 1958 legendary Liverpool folk group The Spinners – Hughie Jones, Mick Groves, Cliff Hall and Tony Davis – enjoyed a 30 year career that saw them release over 40 albums, star in their own BBC 1 and Radio 2 shows, and play to packed venues up and down the country. The groups grew in popularity with their mixture of traditional and contemporary folk songs from around the world and around the corner, such as Maggie May, Woman Sweeter Than Man, The Family of Man, Black and White, and The Leaving of Liverpool.
The Spinners enjoyed nationwide success but were never more at home than when performing in front of their home crowd, often at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall. The group went their separate ways in 1988 with Cliff retiring to Australia, and Tony returning to his first musical love with his own jazz band. Hughie and Mick continued as successful solo folk performers.
The Spinners Legends sees Hughie and Mick reunited ‘In Their Liverpool Home’ with musical director, double bass player, friend and honorary Spinner ‘Count’ John McCormick for a show at the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall’s Music Room. For Spinners fans old and new this rare show is not to be missed.
