A founder and ever present member of The Blues Band with Paul Jones, Tom McGuinness and Dave Kelly, Gary Fletcher performs a compelling mix of originals and classic covers straddling blues, Americana and folk, playing guitar, slide, banjo, mandolin and ukulele – not all at once!.
Gary has released several albums featuring both electric, acoustic line-ups as well as the acclaimed In Solitary solo offering, which along with the electric Giant From the Blue album, secured four-star reviews from Maverick and R2 magazines. Bob Harris has featured Gary live in the studio on his BBC R2 show several times and had him to play sessions for his YouTube channel Under the Apple Tree.
He has appeared with and/or recorded with Peter Green, Maggie Bell, Van Morrison, John Mayall, Long John Baldry, Guy Barker, Bernie Marsden, Micky Moody, Kim Simmonds, Henry McCullough, Zoot Money, Nat Adderley, Guy Barker, the Memphis Horns and Christine Collister.
Tonight’s concert also showcases the exceptional talents of Tom Leary (Feast of Fiddles, Lindisfarne, Tanna etc) on violin and mandolin and Alan Glen on harmonica (Yardbirds, Nine Below Zero etc).
This promises to be an exciting evening of high quality performances from musicians of considerable pedigree performing top class material.
