Hi Tony and Nicki, we are looking for house concert dates during 2014 within the UK to accompany our exciting tour in the US in June 2014. Please check out our info at http://www.sophiebancroft.co.uk/duo/ and do let me know if you are interested in discussing possible dates. With best wishes, Sophie

Performing celtic-tinged new jazz songs and the most stunning standards in the setting of voice, bass and guitar, Sophie and Tom create a dynamic , entertaining and intimate interpretation of beautiful songs.

 “Their performance, imbued with warmth and humour, was delightful” The Herald (4 stars)

Tony and Nicki

Greetings from Canada! My new cd, Break These Chains has received a 4 star review in this month's Maverick Magazine and is being released to the UK/Europe through Proper Distribution.

We are securing dates for an acoustic tour in May/June and wondered if you would be interested in hosting us for a house concert?

Please visit my website at www.tiamcgraff.com

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hi Tony & Nicki,

I'll be touring throughout the UK this October 9-23 and would love for you to review my profile in consideration for a booking!  Much obliged in advance!

Hi Tony and Nicki

I am looking for shows in very early September 2013 for USA/California-based acoustic finger-style guitar player Brian Gore (see http://guitarpoet.com), the 'guitar poet'.
We needs shows in early September ...
Sun  1 to Fri  6   available
Sat 7 and Sun 8 London Acoustic Guitar Show (Olympia) tbc
Brian will be in Germany doing some work with the great guitarist Lulo Reinhardt (grand-nephew of Django) in late August.  Brian is a fluent German speaker and can easily give a full concert or a workshop or masterclass entirely in German.  He could also do this in Spanish, although perhaps a little less fluently.
Brian has a good track record over here since he's also the brains behind the annual touring guitar festival called the International Guitar Night, which Stoneyport has worked for in the UK since 2007.  See http://www.internationalguitarnight.com/.  Brian got IGN going in the USA in 1995 and since 2000 it has become a major North American touring event.

You can hear some of Brian's work at http://uk.myspace.com/guitaristbriangore/music/albums/path-of-least...).

I hope to hear from you soon
