The Springfields at Skegness – Photos

In the early sixties there were a lot of popular Folk Groups – such as the Kingston Trio, Clancy Brothers, New Lost City Ramblers and Rooftop Singers. They followed on from the Almanac Singers and Weavers and gave rise to Peter, Paul and Mary.

In Britain we had our own version with the Springfields. The Springfields included Dusty Springfield with her brother Tom along with Tim Field and then Mike Hurst.

Dusty went on to have a sizeable career.

They were on at Skegness so I popped in. The group were Mike Hurst and two young newcomers. They seemed to be having a good time.

    1. Yes – but this lot weren’t Dusty. Quite interesting to think how she came about and developed. The Springfields were very folkie – a bit like the Seekers.

I'd like to hear from you...
