Welcome to the Mar 2017 edition of The Nice Rooms: A completely independent webzine with a focus on music, film and cult TV that is run on a budget of nil from a living room in St Helens, Merseyside, UK..
New to The Nice Rooms this month is an article about folk music:
During the 1960s, in Kirkby on Merseyside, there was a school making all the musical headlines. Ruffwood was a purpose-built and progressive comprehensive for 2000+ pupils that had its own folk group called the Swindlefolk run by music teacher Dy Swindlehurst.
Although they were only together for just three short years, the group very quickly got a name for themselves across Merseyside leading to appearances on TV with The Spinners and The Settlers and at local venues such as Gregson's Well in Liverpool...This was no ordinary school choir.
My sincere thanks to Dy Swindlehurst for the exclusive interview which can be found here
Also featuring @ The Nice Rooms is Hazel O'Connor's recent interview from Feb 2017. She very kindly took time out of her busy life schedule to talk about her career, the great musicians she collaborates with, her current show she is touring with and her late mum.: It can be found here
The Reading Room has a new article - its first for some time: "5 Nights In Nutwood" tells the story of what might have happened had The Nice Rooms sent a reporter to interview Rupert Bear in his home of Nutwood.... Click here
