Recording sessions

I am playing guitar on some tracks from her forthcoming album. The band are also rehearsing for 2 showcase gigs where Juliet will will be performing songs from the album. How would I describe the style? Folky acoustic flavour, with a cheeky pop twist probably!

OCTOBER – The Yardbirds on tour

The Yardbirds will be on tour in France for most of October, supporting the British blues legend John Mayall

I can’t think of many places I’d rather be on tour for a month, with the caveat that I will most likely need to shed a few gourmet kilos on my return.
