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...

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...
