More Information (The Voice is not responsible for external websites)

John Etheridge is one of the world’s most respected guitarists. With over 50
years of live performance and recordings it is no exaggeration to say that his
music spans a myriad of styles from Gypsy jazz to acid-rock and everything in
He is still a member of the legendary Soft Machine and has collaborated with
the violin legends: Stephane Grappelli and Nigel Kennedy. He is currently in a
duo with the eminent classical guitarist John Williams.
Tonight’s solo performance will be a chance to experience an intimate
evening with John, who is not only an excellent raconteur, but arguably, as
Pat Metheny once said:
‘One of the best guitarists’

Kit Holmes - Kit’s trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have
wowed UK audiences with performances including: Paul McCartney’s LIPA,
the Anne Frank Awards, a performance for Bill Bryson and Andy Kershaw and
a headline show at the International Guitar Festival of Great Britain. Bob
Harris and Andy Kershaw featured her on their BBC shows and Kit’s third
album, Driving into the Blue, which features the legendary double bass player
Danny Thompson, was met with high critical acclaim. Expect an enthralling
and energetic live performance of blues-driven roots with a soul sensibility.
