So my mate Dave ‘Trombone’ has been working hard for the last year or so putting a fantastic New Orleans-style jazz band together – but this one is not like any other you may have seen or heard before…

Not only are Doolally Tap a remarkable bunch of musicians, but they are all unique ‘characters’, guaranteed to add interest and life to any performance or event!

Check out their new website here for more details or better yet go and see them play / book them for a gig – you won’t be disappointed!

This summer has seen me running my guitar workshop at a couple of really great events / venues – a bit delayed but I’ve just been sent some photos which I thought I’d share.

Firstly was a three day series of short courses at the Towersey Folk Festival – a fantastic event at any time but particularly special this year as it celebrated it’s 50th year. Here are a few shots from that:

Then, in early September, I ran a three day residential course at the out-of-this-world Halsway Manor. Again, here are a few shots:

This weekend saw the second guitar workshop I have run for my local Council.

We had about 30 people over the two days – all with very different levels of playing, experience, interests etc. All in all it seemed to go very well – here’s a quick shot of one of the written ‘Action Tasks’ in progress:
