The Scout Hut
Mere Green Rd, Sutton Coldfield B75 5BW
I'm delighted to be inviting Ken Nicol as my special sharing day guest on March 16th at the usual Scout Hall venue in Mere Green Sutton Coldfield.
Ken is a great guitar and banjo player, a singer song writer whose pedigree encompasses his long history in Steeleye Span along with session work and stints with the Albion Band and Magna Carta.
Ken is great performer, who has his own signature FYLDE guitar which many of you who know of these great guitars is something very special. Ken is also a brilliant golfer so my pal Clive Carroll tells me! Oh, and he also plays a Uke!
We are very honoured to have him join us. https://kennicol.com/
The chosen piece for the day is a personal favourite - Fiona's Smile.
The format for the day with be a brief selection of tunes from yours truly followed by a detailed look at our chosen piece for the day, Fiona's Smile. There will be the usual Q&A on any related guitar subject be it technique, performance, composition, what have you. Also throughout the afternoon there will the chance to "share" YOUR playing with us.
Ken will join in the afternoon to play for us and answer any of your questions, but the main thrust will be his playing. I hope he brings his banjo with him as well as his FYLDE!During the remainder of the day I shall be on hand to ask any questions about technique, equipment, composition, performance, you name it!
Please do feel free to bring any recording facility or filming, (usually via phones these days) so you can get up close to what I'm doing and things can be recorded SLOWLY so there will be no doubt as to what is happening on the fingerboard. You will of course need your guitar(s) and a music stand may be useful if you have one but not essential.
Tea, coffee and biscuits are available throughout the day, and our local Sainsbury's is just opposite for your luncheon needs.
Cost for the day is £100
Do contact Sue Holton for details and to secure your place.
I'm SO looking forward to meeting all you pickers out there and sharing all I know and have learnt over my many years in this crazy music business
I look forward to hearing from you.
