Welcome to former “Spinner” Mick Groves Website. 

The Spinners were a world famous folk group that were particularly popular in the 60’s and 70’s (even having their own UK TV show). 

Mick is now a solo artist living and colaborating with local musicians in the South West of England, however he still likes to get together with his old Spinner friends as often as possible. 

Despite the crawl of time Mick remains an active and popular artist both locally and internationally. Please see news and gigs for the latest events. 

In 2005 Mick released a well received solo album of songs by Ewan MacColl (Father of Kirsty), the album is available through this site.

This site also includes more history about Mick and the Spinners.
