Huntingdon Hall 2/2/2019 - The late, late show (report)

Our journey to the beautiful city of Worcester – famous among other things for its Anglican cathedral by the River Severn, and the delicious concoction purveyed by Messrs. Lee & Perrins – was uneventful. My Beloved and I were more than content quietly exploring the city under a bright blue sky –...

Re: Gordon Giltrap MBE

Awoke to this wonderful news — my first response was," about time too."

Many congratulations Gordon - this long overdue official recognition of your music and charitable efforts is well deserved.

Hope to see you soon,

Book launch - Woodstock - 5 / 10 / 2018

When I hear the name Woodstock, I cannot help but visualize Snoopy’s feathered friend in the Peanuts cartoon strip by Charles M. Schulz. When you mention the name to individuals of a certain age, it conjures up images of the momentous 1969 festival of peace, love and music in upstate New York. I hav...

The Coopers Arms 27 / 09 / 2018 - with Nick Hooper

The tally was into double figures. From the bar of the Cromwell suite to the function room was a small step – perhaps three inches – and although marked, it caused some attendees to trip and lurch into the area: an unfortunate and cruel distraction. The Coopers Arms, Weston on Trent is situated in W...

Bishop's Itchington - with Nick Hooper - 21/ 07/ 2018

Billed as “Two Friends in Concert” we were anticipating a vintage evening of guitar playing entertainment from Messrs. Giltrap and Hooper. St. Michael’s Church, Bishop’s Itchington was again the venue for the performance. Our host - Rev. Martin Green - welcomed us warmly and, from a batch of many, p...

The Broadway, Peterborough. 6 / 1 / 2018

Situated on the northern edge of downtown Peterborough there lies a building that conjures reminiscences of my younger days. The Broadway theatre was formerly a single screen cinema of the Odeon group, and the original deco style exterior invokes memories of the ‘tanner rush’ held every Saturday mor...

The Stables, Wavendon - 28 / 9 / 2017

Founded by legendary jazz musicians, Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth, the Stables houses a superb 398 seat amphitheater that is the Jim Marshall Auditorium. This was to be the venue for our latest dose of the Giltrap drug, supported on this occasion by Carrie Martin. We had heard much of Carr...

Mere Green - 16 / 9 / 2017

‘It’s pink!’ Such was the surprised exclamation to my beloved as we approached St.James Hill church in Mere Green, Sutton Coldfield – a very short drive from Giltrap Mansions - to support a certain guitarist of our acquaintance. The exterior brickwork of the building is rendered in a provocative sha...

Re: Will be offline for a while soon

Oldbones, As a non player many of the technical issues you raise go way over my head. However I do appreciate and enjoy the self deprecating humour that you include in your musings - and the thought and care with which they are constructed. I trust that your relocation is successfully executed and l...

Guildhall, Lichfield - 18 / 07 / 2017 “You have managed to create something magnificent in ‘The Last of England’”, said I to the modest and shy Paul Ward after the launch concert for the vinyl version of this outstanding album. He replied that performing live was easy after his warm up man (GG) had ...

Re: Best wishes for Rog xxx

Hi Roger & Em, When you think you are just getting on with life and doing what needs to be done, it is only too easy to find that you are pushing yourself too hard. Nature has its ways of telling you to slow down and reflect upon what is most important and it is wise to heed the message. Greetin...
