Ravens & Lullabies - Bilston - 6 / 4 / 2014

Fiona & I shouldn’t really have been surprised in an industrial connection between Bilston, situated as it is in the heart of the Black Country, and the Northamptonshire town of Corby where we reside. Both were famous for the production of steel until the works were closed in the late 1970s with...

Re: Bilston

Hi Kevin, Glad you made it last night - pity we missed each other. Agree entirely - a wonderful concert that will remain burned in my memory for some time ( although not burned as much as one individual present.)( You see what I've done there - created suspense and anticipation - watch this space ) ...

4Parts Guitar - Worcester - 15 /3 /2014

The foyer of the ecclesiastical Huntingdon Hall was deserted, and I feared that my gentle trundle to the fair city of Worcester had been in vain – had I got the wrong night? When I heard a few notes of a familiar tune I was encouraged: and when I peeped around the door of the empty auditorium and es...

Re: Mike Stranks

I will add a resounding "hear,hear" to that.

Sir Mike is one of that rare breed:a true gentleman. Tis a pleasure to know him and spend time in his company.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery Mike.

Chipping Norton - 2 / 2 / 2014

Dark. Menacing. Foreboding. Three words that cannot be used to describe the historic and picturesque jewel of the Cotswolds that is Chipping Norton – affectionately known as Chippy. The compact and bijou auditorium of Chippy’s theatre reminded me a little of a Victorian style music hall – unsurprisi...

Re: LOREN

Beautiful………just beautiful.

I never had the honour and privilege of knowing Bert Jansch or Loren - but this piece is so full of emotion that I am not ashamed to
admit to moist eyes at watching the Troubadour play this.

Thank you Gordon.

Keith

Re: Happy Christmas!

Hi Sue. Calamities always seem to come at the least convenient times - by definition I guess. You and Mike are in our thoughts and prayers and we trust you can salvage some Xmas joy. We send out seasonal greetings to all reading this - may your festivities be hearty and joyous. Keith & Fiona xx

Re: The Wonga ad.

I was most impressed by the snippet of mastery on Wonga's goggle box advert - prompted me to delve a little………. The two guitarists involved are Mike Dawes - who wrote the piece, entitled Flexible Fingers, and who plays the part of "Earl" - and Ben Lapps, who is seen on screen. These guys a...

The Stables, Wavendon - with BJH - 9 /11 /2013

We have visited The Stables at Wavendon, Milton Keynes on a number of occasions – and the building, organization and friendly people – many of them volunteers – who welcome us, are always impressive. Established in 1969 by John Dankworth and Cleo Laine – literally in an old stable block – the Stable...

Re: Sutton Coldfield - 3 / 11 / 2013

Hi Roger, I trust that you and yours are well. I've just looked back and realised that I have attended ten gigs in the last twelve month period that have featured Mr.Giltrap - eleven if you count tomorrow's concert at The Stables in Milton Keynes where Gordon and Oliver have a brand new support band...

Sutton Coldfield - 3 / 11 / 2013

Sunday evening, 3rd November, found Fiona and me braving the delights of the M6 motorway to Birmingham to attend a concert in the locale of Giltrap Towers. The Duke Street Church Centre was the venue - St Giles Hospice in Sutton Coldfield the beneficiary. This gig enabled Gordon to continue his supp...

The Musician, Leicester - 30 /10/ 2013

This can’t be right - Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman playing at The Musician in Leicester? Isn’t that a pub venue where all those loud heavy metal bands play? Not the sort of place for the more sophisticated sort of players surely. My son, Graham, and I pondered this as we made our way to Clyde S...
