I have been away from Swinton for over 7 years now so was surprised and pleased to find this thread was still going :-)

In this time of not being able to get out to enjoy our music I thought it apt to link Swinton's YouTube channel so whoever is interested can enjoy what we had in offer some years back. It's a mixture of guest appearances and floor spots. The guy that did it had no connection with The running of the club and it is a pretty random mix!

Enjoy :-)

For some reason I seldom went to the Swinton club despite it only being 3 or 4 miles from where I lived. On the few occasions I did go it was always great fun. I do remember seeing Peter Ryder there and I think Strawhead who were one of our favourite bands.

Pete is still strutting his stuff and as good as ever, Raggy. Strawhead were, I think, from around Southport and friends of Ged and Sue. We wouldn't have been able to afford them otherwise :-)

Couldn't find Pete on that channel but here is one at the Lion from 2011. Last time I saw him he hadn't changed :-)

Just for you, Raggy :-) Nat Shapiro's Time

I didn't link any Strawhead ones as they abound on YouTube. I think Chris Pollington may post on here occasionaly so, if you do Chris, feel free to send us a link :-)

With a heavy heart, I am having to pull out of this month's gigs. The West country tour I did had knocked my pipe out, and the pain turned out to be the worst case of shingles my doctor had seen. They are on my back my front my armpit and down my arm and on my hand. I have lost about 30% use of my arm. This is due to fairly serious nerve damage. I am at the doctor again this morning. The pain is manageable but unfortunately, my right arm goes into spasm regularly, and it’s like somebody pouring a kettle of boiling water down my arm, and it doubles me up, and takes about 5 minutes to go off. I’m afraid that lifting and guitar playing is off the agenda. It looks like being a long job. I’m hoping that the nerve route will repair itself in a month or so, but I’m told it could be a lot longer.
I daren’t allow my arm to go into spasm on the motorway as you can imagine.
Grovelling apologies to all my friends at Swinton, and especially Ged and Sue.

Latest from Sue at Swinton

"Unfortunately our guest for Friday 10th MAY 2024 Nick Dow cannot fulfill the booking due to illness. We sent our best wishes for a full recovery and hope Nick will be able to appear at the club soon.

Fortunately Lawrence Hoy has kindly agreed to step into the breach.

He is a member of Rare Ould Times an Irish band from Wigan. Lawrence has a varied repertoire and may be known by many of you.

Looking forward to seeing you all. XxSue"

I used to have Lawrence's album 'Beyond the Seas' but have no idea what became of it. I remember it was very good and would pop over to Swinton to see if he had another if I was not otherwise engaged
