Really proud to announce I will once again be celebrating the work and life of Bert Jansch, this time as part of the Glasgow Celtic Connections Festival in January. I will play two nights with Ben Watt 30/1 at the Fruitmarket and 1/2 at the Royal Concert Hall. Other guests will include Ryley Walker, Jacquie McShee, Robert Plant and many more. The concerts organised by the Bert Jansch Foundation are titled "Bert Inspired" and will revolve around Bert's own work and songs which have been inspired by him. You can find ticket links on my live page.
Backstreet Merchandise are doing a limited run of t shirts as part of the McAlmont & Butler tour. You can buy a lovely shirt featuring a photo of my actual Gibson ES-355 via the M&B website here. If you don't already have tickets for the shows next week there are still a few left here .
Hi I performed parts of the underscore to the TV documentary "Kids In Crisis" which aired last night on Channel 4. The score was arranged by Nick Phillips who asked me to contribute some guitar. If you'd like to have a look, listen to the moving score and follow the fascinating documentary you can view again here .
I will be appearing alongside Ben Watt on Tuesday 30th June as special guests for Ron Sexsmith's show. Details and ticket link are On the live page . We will be playing for around 40 minutes and Ben has a bunch of new songs we have been rehearsing.
We're really looking forward to tonight's show for Gibson UK to launch the Memphis 2015 range of beautiful guitars.I'll be joined by Romeo Stoddart of the Magic Numbers and of course Mako Sakamoto on drums . We've just got time for a handful of songs cobbled together and jammed out in what will be a fairly impromptu fashion. If you're lucky enough to have received tickets I hope you have fun and thanks for replying. Make sure you're signed up the mailing list to keep tabs on things like this .... bb
