Thread Name: Fivepeny piece, anyone remember them?
Subject: RE: Fivepeny piece, anyone remember them?
Forgive me my previous mischievous post John. I was not a great fan of either the Spinners or Fivepenny Piece. However, although I thought they were more on the fringes of pop/Northern cabaret than real folk music, I think they did a lot of good by introducing people to folk songs. I think of them in the same way as I think of Enid Blyton books and reading. She was not a great author, but she did get me into the habit of reading. If Fivepenny Piece got more people interested in folk music, it is a good thing they were around.
