It has been a while since the last post and Steve and I have had a long break from gigging to catch up on a bunch of things.
Word is clearly spreading about Steve’s ability to make superb, high end instruments and he has been inundated with orders for hand made custom guitars. In addition, he has also been working on new material for a solo cd. He will be recording that at the end of August then touring in Germany to promote it with the International Guitar Night concert series in November.
I have been getting out and about to a number of trad. sessions, singarounds and open mics. I recently went busking with friends and enjoyed a wonderful jazz improvisation workshop with Jilly Jarman. In my spare time I’ve been trying to make some inroads into a ridiculously long list of household and DIY jobs that are impossible to tackle alongside a busy gigging schedule.
Hicks and Goulbourn have a stack of new material and had intended to go into the studio and record a cd but finding time to do that has been tricky thus far ….
So, please do check out our gig list, come along to see us if you can and if you’d like us to play in your area at some point in the future, please get in touch:
or full details on our contact page.
Incidentally, Steve’s tour in Germany with the International Guitar Night finishes on the 20th November then I’ll be joining him to play at The Dachtheatre in Warendorf on Sunday 27th November. We are currently available between Monday 21st and Saturday 26th November and are looking for gigs, house concerts etc., in Germany or nearby, so we’ love to hear from you if you know of or have a potential venue.
