Rhythm Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Mandolin, Upright bass.


I am the acoustic / acoustic electric guitarist playing with a drummer /percussionist, and a female singer, with a view to open mic nights and any other setting that appreciates an eclectic mix of bluesy / traditional and contemporary folk / jazzy / country tunes.

Looking for:-
A competent acoustic / electro acoustic guitarist / mandolin player who can, and really wants to play to those styles. We would like to write our own material, and get into a studio to produce a quality CD / DVD of some songs that we could promote to get a spot at a minor tent in a minor festival, like Priddy / Wychwood or similar...
