Re: Doorstep concert

Gordon.. just picked up on this and had a listen..... Sounded terrific... and a lovely idea. We all need a musical 'pickmeup' at the moment... Your neighbours should feel privileged to have you do a mini concert for them.... and you are so fortunate to have neighbours that bother to listen. Like the...

The Last of Old England

Hi Gordon.… so good to see you again, up and performing recently at Sharrington. A great offshoot has been to get to know Chris Abrams.... Have been very struck by the ethos of your 'Last of Old England' CD.. an inspiration from various pre-Raphaelite artists, and a number of dedications to family m...

Sharrington Concert last night

Hi Gordon.… great to see you well and giving your usual virtuoso performance.... Despite playing guitar/singing for some 50 years and a lot of past gigging, I've luckily learnt 2 major lessons: (1) I'm still only a pretty basic guitarist (2) More importantly, how fortunate I am to be able to appreci...

Tewkesbury Concert 17 May 2019

Hi Gordon.. Picked up on this concert recently. We enjoyed the Hindolvaston concert a few months back and having a quick hello. Looks like the above concert may be one I can get to with my wife - around the time of our annual 'pilgrimage' to Cheltenham to catchy up with friends and ex-colleagues.. i...

Re: Hindolveston Concert 11 August

Hi Gordon... not often all my musical Christmases come together..... so within a week of your memorable concert, get to go to Binham Priory to hear one of THE world's best classical guitarists - Xuefei Yang.... you only have to hear her Bach violin partita in Gm - rondo - to be left speechless - som...

Re: Hindolveston Concert 11 August

Hi Gordon Very much appreciated the concert last night as always, and especially for 'Sultan4swing' to be able to get to say hello.... A nice atmosphere with lots of locals, good balanced sound system, and the excellent Brasilian dance music on classical guitar warm-up from Andrew.... Nice to have a...

Gordon's August notes comment on Fylde

Gordon, Interested in your comment re the Fylde, 'which still played well after 5 years'...... Please correct me but the comment gave the impression that it was almost a surprise that this should be so ??? Surprised me because a guitarist of your stature particularly, and anyone else who has long gu...

Paul Simon's last tour

Sad to see this is the last tour of this iconic singer/songwriter.... who to many of us 'oldies' , was the epitomy of the 60's folk movement, when songs actually said something ... !!!!! Even sadder, and for me a cruel twist of timing, is that under any other circumstances, I would have got to this ...

Sound balancing at concerts - a personal bug-bear

Interested to know if this is an issue to other contributors.... Several times recently I 've paid good money to hear good bands, and it's been spoiled by so-called 'professional' sound engineers. It seems that these guys only interpret dials/sliders on their consul to produce the balance and don't ...

Xuefei Yang - Norfolk

[b]It's not often Norfolk gets to host a guitarist of Xuefei Yangs calibre.... so if hearing one of the top 6 classical guitarists grabs you ... you might want to get hold of tickets while you can... She is doing a recital at Binham Priory on 18 August - tickets GBP18.... available via the Binham we...
