Charity Events and Guitar Festivals

A couple of nice events have been added to my calendar recently, here's a bit more info about them.

Solent Diabetes Association present:

Sixties R&B Skiffle

This will be a fund raiser for the Solent Diabetes Association, and will be held at "The Bugle" Titchfield, pub website, this coming Sunday 6th February. Music starts from 4.00pm and continues on into the evening, due to daytime commitments (The Flo Jam!) we'll be joining them in the evening, some time after 7.00pm. 'We' in this case is Walker Broad, featuring Sandy Walker on Piano / Vocals and myself on acoustic guitar.

There will be a raffle, and collection for the association, please come along and support this, and enjoy some good music at the same time! Other acts appearing include Pete Harris (great blues guitarist) and The Jellyrollers. All the artitsts are giveing their time for free.

Guitar Festival - South Hill Park, Bracknell

A really spectacular guitar festival is being organised on the 30th of April, at the South Hill Arts Centre, Bracknell, and I'm delighted to have been asked to take part! The headline act in the evening will be Antonio Forcione, a truly stunning player! There will be a number of stages active throughout the day, along with workshops, a guitar shop, and more, check out the Guitar Fest site for more details.

I will be performing a set of my acoustic blues on the Cellar Bar Stage at 12:40pm and then presenting a workshop on "Slide Guitar In Standard Tuning" at 5.00pm.

There are a lot of excellent videos of Antonio Forcione, on youtube, but here's one to get you going...

Nice additions to the calendar, I hope you'll agree, why not come to both!
