The Scout Hut
Mere Green Rd, Sutton Coldfield B75 5BW
On Saturday Feb 24th 2018 I'm holding another "Sharing Day" in Mere Green, Sutton Coldfield at the same venue as last time, at the rear of St James Hall opposite Sainsbury's.
My special guest is the wonderful guitarist/composer/teacher and transcriber for major guitar publications in the UK Tristan Seume. It has been my pleasure to have known Tris for many years and it has been a joy to share the stage with him on many occasions.
Like me, he is a devotee of FYLDE guitars and like me shares a close friendship with the company's founder Roger Bucknall. Such is their friendship that Roger fashioned a beautiful FYLDE banjo for Tris, probably one of the finest I have ever seen and is truly worthy of his outstanding abilities on this instrument. But it is his virtuoso guitar playing that truly sets him apart from other players of his generation. I have always likened him to a young John Renbourn in terms of his touch and complex guitar instrumentals.
The format for the day will be a brief selection of tunes from yours truly followed by a detailed look at our chosen piece for the day, a track from my new album "This Fathers Love". There will be the usual Q&A on any related guitar subject be it technique, performance, composition, what have you. Also throughout the afternoon there will the chance to "share" YOUR playing with us.
Tristan will join in the afternoon to play us some of his stunning compositions and answer any of your questions, but the main thrust will be his playing. I hope he brings his banjo with him as well as his collection of FYLDE'S!
Tea, coffee and biscuits are available throughout the day, and our local Sainsbury's is just opposite for your luncheon needs.
Cost for the day is £100
Do contact Sue Holton for details and to secure your place.
I'm SO looking forward to meeting all you pickers out there and sharing all I know and have learnt over my many years in this crazy music business
I look forward to hearing from you.
