Re: Forest Arts

I quite agree. I was there too as I have been on several of Gordon's past visits - including the Gordon / Oliver Wakeman visit last year and (several years ago now) when Gordon was accompanied by an electric piano playing young assistant whose name I shamefully have forgotten. It is what anyone woul...

Ravens & Lullabies - the CD

For anyone who can't wait for Gordon's January newsletter (assuming the CD is on the menu) here's a link to some news. It seems the prog world (who have never forgotten our hero) are anticipating the CD release as much as we forumettes!!

Chris Fry

Some allusion here to "Giltrapian 12 string". Anyone not familiar with Chris Fry, and all those who are, should give "Composed" a try. A review : http://www.dprp.net/reviews/201233.php The dprp website is a regular promoter of all things Giltrap - even recently heralding the Gilt...

Re: Return to the 70s

Well the "back to the 70's" decision seems to be welcome in musical web circles - even attracting new fans. Prog isn't dead - see the "Oliver Wakeman & Gordon Giltrap" thread dated 02/07/2012 (American style date) on the Message Forum section on http://www.progressiveears.com...

Shining Morn review

Background magazine (a Dutch review website) posted the following. Enjoy! Many people rave about guitarists like Steve Hackett, Steve Howe and Anthony Phillips, but I think Gordon Giltrap is one of the most underrated British guitar players around. His technique on the acoustic guitar is quite uniqu...

Elm Tree Inn, Ringwood

Although a resident of the area, I had never been to the Elm Tree for entertainment before and such an unexpected delight. Joined to the side of the pub was an old barn converted over to a performance area, regularly inhabited by the Ringwood Folk Club. One minor criticism was the lack of a rasied a...

Message for Sue Holton

Good news and bad news, Sue.
Good news - I see from the venue website that Gordon has sold out at the Forge at the Anvil, Basingstoke in November.
Bad news is that I hoped to go. Ah well, missed out on this one.
Do you want to update the Concerts page?

As a contrast to Gordon's playing his interpretations of other composers music (albeit significant pieces for him) try the "Drifter" double CD. The first CD contains studio recordings and arrangements where Gordon alongside his usual guitar has also introduced other instument sounds to acc...
