Ten Guitars (and counting)

After Tom Dibb, Adam Hastings & Roly Veitch at the Highfield Hotel, East Rainton, this week it's the Virtuoso Trio featuring Jim Birkett on guitar alongside Clarinet King George McDonald and Basso Supremo Pete Stuart. Three 'Goodmen' and true. More guitars on Monday at the resurrected, for one night only, Side Café with the Deidrie Cartwright and Kathy Dyson Duo paying tribute to the late Emily Remler - unmissable!
Another 12 strings on Thursday at Blaydon. The ubiquitous duo of Jim and Roly are in "Swing Guitar" mode so put on your foottapping shoes. It happens in the intimate setting of the club lounge.
The day before, Mark Williams could be at the Chilli and a week later (May 6) Jim Birkett takes his Virtuosos to Ashington Jazz Club.
There's a whole lot of plucking going on but don't fret, just take your pick - it's all good stuff - and where better to start than tomorrow night at East Rainton?
Lance.
