Acoustic Guitar - Absolute Beginners

Led by Richard Lee.

The aim of these lessons is to get you playing your first song within 4 weeks of lessons, as no-one takes up guitar to strum random chords, it’s all about the songs.

Nic Meier (guitar)

An evening inspired by the music of American jazz guitarist Pat Metheny.

Nicolas Meier – acoustic and steel string acoustic guitar.
Alex Hutton – piano and keyboards
Bass - Tom Mason
Eric Ford – Drums

UK-based guitarist Nicolas Meier has carved a reputation out as one of the world's most original and uniquely talented guitarists.

Drawing from a love of Turkish, Eastern and Middle Eastern music, Flamenco, Tango and other genres, all mixed with jazz , Meier's versatility and musical fluency extends well beyond that.

Nic’s considerable talents drew the attention of rock guitar legend, Jeff Beck, who made Nicolas a mainstay in The Jeff Beck Group carrying him on two world tours during the course of the last several years.

Meier originally hails from Switzerland; born in 1973, to parents who are great lovers of the arts. Never short on ambition, Meier founded his own record label, MGP Records, in 2009. To date, he's produced twelve albums: as a solo artist; in various group formats (The Nicolas Meier Group; Nicolas Meier Trio; Eclectica!; Nicolas Meier World Group); with his heavy metal band, Seven7, and; in a duo format, with long-time partner, fellow guitarist and collaborator, the fabulous UK master, Pete Oxley. (Their 2015 release, "Chasing Tales," was a masterful, benchmark album, in the dual-guitar format.)

Meier’s sound is rooted in his love of playing jazz on acoustic guitar, especially his Godin nylon-string guitar. It’s a sound that lends itself especially well to flamenco and middle-eastern music.

These influences, and more, are brilliantly fused in his unique multi-lingual style. He also plays fretless acoustic guitar, the Saz (a traditional Turkish stringed instrument), electric guitar, steel-string acoustic guitar, glissentar (an 11-stringed fretless insturment) and a baglama. By 2022 a new World Group studio album called "Magnificent" came out. A 3 CD package including "Live" and "Stories" to promote this release, lots of UK concerts and a European tour of 11 dates opening for rock guitar legend Steve Vai.

This show will be a nod towards the influence of Pat Metheny and will be a colourful blend of jazz; rock and European folk influenced Jazz.

Hattie Whitehead with special guest Tim Whitehead (sax)

Vocalist Hattie brings a Joni Mitchell inspired evening.

Hattie Whitehead (vocals and guitar)
Tim Whitehead (sax)
Alex Hutton (piano)
Darren McCarthy (bass)
Tom Hooper (drums)

Hattie Whitehead does not pull her punches. Think Liz Lawrence meets Joni Mitchell. Her smart lyrics and powerful, outspoken female voice blend folk sensibilities with an undeniably modern sound.

Performing and writing since a young age and born into an artistic family Hattie has won the Glastonbury Emerging Talent Competition in 2016 and her self released EPs have over 200k streams.

The self-produced video for Hattie Whiteheads 2018 single "Up's and Downs" clocked over 50k views on Youtube. It is no surprise that with her uncanny ability to graft complex narratives to memorable melodies that Hattie has also seen success with sync work.

She was hand picked by Guy Garvey to write for and perform on soundtrack for the hit Apple+ TV show for "Trying Season 1". On the first single from the campaign “No Man's Land” (released 30th September 22) she dives into the experience of loss that permeates much of her material to date. Written in direct response to the loss of her mother, the song describes an experience that is all the more relevant in the post-pandemic world we live in today where loss is all around us.

The outcome is a body of work that takes Hattie's unflinching honesty when discussing the industry and it’s troubled relationship to women or un-earthing with eye-widening vulnerability her own personal experiences and places the sound squarely in 2023.

From Ian Car’s Nucleus in the 70’s to the iconic 80’s allstar Loose Tubes collaboration, Tim Whitehead has been a central role in British Jazz for many decades. Co-founding ‘Jazz Umbrella’ in the 80’s and ‘Way out West in the 90’s, He has also helped provide a network and platform for other musicians.

This show will centre around Hattie’s love of Joni Mitchell. – The more jazzier side of Joni Mitchell. It will also feature the world class saxophone of Tim Whitehead.

‘It’s not just his mastery of the tenor saxophone, phenominal though it is, but the absolute conviction of his playing that is so impressive.’ Dave Gelly - Observer

‘The song Ups and Downs highlights Whitehead’s rich, honeyed vocals as well as her talent for writing enthralling melodies and soul-baringly honest lyrics.’ The Telegraph

'The singer-writer from Richmond in London, wears her heart and her accomplished song craft on her sleeve with the self-released single More Than That. It’s an appealingly open faced love song.’ Prog Magazine

‘Hattie's got the sort of talent that means in a couple of years time we'll all be boasting about being here tonight.’ For Folk's Sake

When the Horn Blows – ‘There’s something incredibly wholesome about Hattie Whitehead’s folk-tinged vocal, her delivery is tender and matter of fact, pure and warm despite some of the melancholia in the lyrical theme.’ PressPlay Ok

The Carrivick Sisters

The Carrivick Sisters are one of the UK's top young bluegrass and folk acts.

Twins Laura and Charlotte perform their original songs and instrumentals along with a few carefully chosen covers on guitar, mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and clawhammer banjo. Their busy touring schedule is rapidly building them a reputation for engaging and entertaining live performances with tight sibling vocal harmonies and multi-instrumental virtuosity. Having grown up in South Devon, an area rich in folk lore and legends, much of their original material is inspired by their local surroundings and history.

The Carrivick Sisters first started performing as a duo in 2006, originally as buskers before turning professional when they left school in 2007. In 2007 they won the South West Busker’s and Street Entertainer’s Competition, gaining themselves their first spot at Glastonbury Festival. In 2008 Laura achieved 2nd place at the RockyGrass Fiddle Contest in America. The Carrivick Sisters were finalists in the prestigious BBC Radio 2 Young FolkAwards 2010 and were named Band|Duo of the Year in the 2011 FATEA Awards. Most recently Charlotte won first place in both Old-time banjo and fiddle at FOAOTMAD's festival in Gainsborough 2012.

'Demonstrating rare instrumental and vocal superiority that puts their colleagues to shame… this is one duo which is going places' ★★★★★ Maverick Magazine
