The Spindwyers

Andrew Dwyer and Sheila Thackwray:

both have an interesting pedigree in Folk Music circles. Sheila gained a BA in music in 1980 and has run clubs in the Hereford area. Andrew came second in the Melody Maker Folk/Rock contest in 1974. He has also run clubs in the Tamworth area of Staffordshire. He has a degree in Film and Television. Both are seasoned performers in concert, club, radio, Woman's institute jam parties and all manner of sundry venues.

They perform on Keyboards and Guitar, not only self-penned compositions but some traditional songs. With close harmony and witty repartee they know exactly how to entertain an audience.

This elusive couple have been supporting Miskin for a couple of years now and we hardly ever seem to meet. I've found the answer now, they will be running the Friday Evening Folk Club in the Cottage. A new event this year, there are now so many arriving for Friday evening that a proper Folk Club night will relieve the pressure in Nellie Dean's.

Andre and Sheila have their own Website so do go and look
