As you can see, Steve has been busy at the workbench making custom orders for guitars and mandolins and he’s in high demand for repairs on precious instruments too. In this video Steve knocks out a tune on this newly completed Octave Mandolin which he made for a customer then he talks about the design and materials used. Lynn has been working on some new material with friends up North and catching up on admin.
In August Steve will be recording a new solo album in Germany for Acoustic Music Records but in the meantime Hicks and Goulbourn have a number of shows coming up over the summer. Do catch us if you can – full details on our, ‘Gigs‘, page. Here’s a list of forthcoming dates to the beginning of September.
