|Andy and Shirley: Prize Giving|
Shirley joined them after former singer Andy Young (Lim) decided to leave the group. He had fronted them from 1964-1965 but left to pursue an academic path. His line-up had David Chan as lead guitarist.
After a long absence and with much persuasion, Andy came back in 2008 to sing with the group again and carried on till today. By then Merlin had also left and with a new lineup comprising Audie Ng and Danny Boy, The Silver Strings and Andy have since appeared and performed in a concert together. At the same time, Andy started this blog to tell his story. Revival!
You can find these stories and photographs of all their shows on this blog under CONCERTS (YEAR) on the right bar Content page.
*Made for SG 50, the present short-film on YouTube, You're The Boy would have featured Andy as grandfather Merlin in the story but because Andy was ill with a very bad 'flu actor Laurence Lim replaced him during production.
