Hiya Rob, a music loving mate of mine sent me the info' for this site and suggested I get my arse on it, so here I am.
These network sites take up so much time I could be stuck in front of this bloody screen for the rest of my life; but I must admit, this particular site looks like just the ticket for a roadog like me and I'm looking forward to finding my way around and hooking up with all the lovely people. I think you're onto something here. Kind regards Vince Martyn
Hiyah Rob, brilliant idea this one!! Esther O'Connor put me up to joining and I'm glad she did! I also run an 'Internet Radio' and will be adding a link for this place. I can help other artists/hosts in the UK with PA etc if they need it. I will also be doing some features on several of the artists listed here in the form of interviews and reviews on the station too. I have a guy based in the US as well as us in the UK so our influence is pretty much gobal. Pass the word round,.. I'll happily plug the heck outta this for everyone's benefit.
Hi Rob Ellen
thanks for being my friend here. I need to come into the music people of the world. Even if I am 56 years of age, I will never give up on the music that came up out of nothing for 6 years ago. I have been doing all my musical things alone. It would have been good to be together with others to learn and maybe I could give some to. Please let me have a photo of you, its good to see the one you write to
I opened this to see if anyone round this way was interested in House Concerts, but I've not had much time to do much with it. Still like the idea, tho'.
Some of these artists come to me thro other angles anyway...
Will catch up on my listening backlog on here sometime soon ;-)
the night blends a full program of outstanding solo instrumental guitar music with songs for guitar and voice.
we're looking for opps in the period of Sept 10-15 and/or Oct 21-24, that would be the yr. 2010!
you can learn more about us at the link provided above. Over the next few weeks we'll be populating the site with YouTube vids of our duo performances and press photos. We have a big debut in July at Yoshi's in San Francisco which will be recorded for a live album.
thanks for the message - I've been trying to reply all morning but the send button won't work - so over here instead.
I love Flyinshoes - i'm passing the link on ... (i have a friend who may be interested in contributing)
I'm booking some dates in Scotland for next November, so maybe somewhere here would be interested in hosting a house concert for Tom and myself.
All the best for now
