John Charles Beckett


Band to Join, Mandolin, Harmonica, Acoustic Guitar, Lead Guitar, Rhythm Guitar.


Ex Hippy type Art Student (Late 1960s) Now aged 58 (bald and grey) But still consider myself reasonably cool, definatley passionate about playing the guitar, mandolin and blues harp. Love the Blues and folk music. Have written 14 songs and a few instrumentals but never recorded them and only performed a few of them. For the last 10 and half years have been teaching the above instruments, have also done some solo performances over the years 2 of them were paid so I would suggest that they were gigs. Eager to start performing live in addition to teaching.
