Enzo - Words and Music Fest

Sunday October 15th, 2017

PHOTOS TO FOLLOW SHORTLY




A bit of an extra special show I've performed and hosted in the last couple of years or more is Enzo Acoustic Zone, a part of the Words and Music Festival at the yummy coffee and pizza emporium that is Enzo.
I had the delight of introducing some of the most captivating and beautiful sound-makers in the UK, if slightly below the radar of many, namely Ian Roland's melodic, folk-orientated band with stunning musicianship and vocal harmonies Roland Yapp and Jackson and the hypnotic Ruth Theodore. Apparently (based on a conversation with Ruth's mum while walking back over to their hotel) Ruth is self-taught on the guitar and doesn't have any conventional knowledge on how your supposed to play or even about standard tuning, so she's taught herself her own, entirely unique way of playing, and hypnotic it is, too.
Wonderful songs, thanks all. Plus top talents in their own right Tim and Dayve who organised the sound and made it all actually possible!

Making Moments at Words & Music Fest.

12/10/2017

Tonight it was a pleasure to make an appearance on stage with Nigel Stonier and Special Guests as part of the 10th Words and Music Festival.
A great night!


One of his guests was the brilliant Tracey Browne who I caught soundchecking to an empty ballroom before the show. Not normally the done thing to share soundchecking shenanigans so I asked her of course.
