News and Gigs

Dear friends, I hope you’re all well and that the new year’s not treating you too shabbily. Here’s a quick post to let you know what I’m up to.

So, I’ve got a regular Sunday afternoon gig at a new-ish bar/restaurant in the Northern Quarter called R-House. I was originally doing the gig with a great French guitarist called Hugo Corbin, but he’s gone off to further his studies in New York, so now I’m working with a few different musicians, varying from week to week. We’ve had some great people, so far on the guitar we’ve had Simon Mulcaster and Steve Hemsworth; and on the bass we’ve had Ed Harrison, Matt Owens, Gavin Barras and Stewart Wilson. On the odd week I’ll be off doing other things, so we’ll be having guest vocalists for these ones. We had Jade America Harris on 27th January, and she’ll be back again on 24th February. We’re there every Sunday, 3pm-6pm and it’s free.

Another new project I’ve taken on is leading the Inspire Community Voices, a new community choir based in Bury. We rehearse in Bury Met Theatre the first and third Saturday of each month (although this can vary, so do check the web) 2pm-4:30pm. It’s a very friendly group and all songs are taught by ear, so no music reading required. We will be covering a range of musical styles. So if you’re over Bury way and fancy a bit of harmony singing, get on down!

There’s quite a few gigs on the horizon, so have a look at the gigs page, and I hope to see some friendly faces at some of them.
