“Welcome back, my friends…

…to the show that never ends”, chorus a legion of prog fans around the world.

Yes, it’s that time of year where I plug my latest adventures in the pit – June sees me in the guitar chair for the premiere of Howard Goodall’s musical setting of the classic story/film “Love Story” at the prestigious Chichester Festival.

It’s a lovely score, for strings, piano & guitar (doubling classical & 12-string) – a wonderful and rare blend of lyrical & evocative writing, with some real finger-twisting ensemble moments. Marvellous!

Details for the show can be assimilated here: http://www.cft.org.uk/cft-productions_details.asp?pid=371

Come on down and revel in the sunshine and musical derring-do!

New video

Just a quick update, to say I’ve uploaded a new, improvised solo onto my YouTube channel.

Equipment used: Fender Deluxe Tele retro-fitted with EMG T-pickups, into a Zendrive pedal, into the clean channel of a Peavey Valveking.

Please enjoy, and steal all the licks – that’s what they’re there for!

Wells Jazz Collective

One quick advert for a very important gig tomorrow night!


The inaugural night of The Wells Jazz Collective is taking place Saturday 21st March (tomorrow!), 7.30pm at the Wells Little Theatre in Somerset.

Highly recommended, I’ll be playing, and all is under the helm of one of my fave multi-instrumentalists, Russell Collins. Should be an excellent concert, with a JAM session in the second half!
So come along, and bring a full palette of chromatic notes which we can spread judiciously over some ridiculous changes.
Or be all melodic and tasteful. Go on, I dare you.

Please come along and support (and PLAY!) – entry is £8.50, or £5 if you’re playing or a student.
BARGAIN!

Yours in Jazz,
John.

CoffeeLoop presents MicroConcert

Evenin’ all,


I just want to alert you to a new concert put on by CoffeeLoop: a Twitter-based concept called MicroConcert.

It’s brought to you by the same team that did the adventurous SPEM and The Words on the Wall projects. If you’re free to watch the streaming concert tomorrow (March 19th) I highly recommend it.

More info available at my brother’s site.

Take care, and keep rockin’ in the free world.
John.
