Just heard from Carl Stephens, who runs acoustic Sundays at Nexus Art Cafe, Dale Street, Manchester.

Acoustic Sundays are taking a break for Christmas, but will be back on Sunday, 10th January 2010. The music starts at 2.30pm.

The sessions are open to any musicians who want to play – and to get a slot, you just have to get in touch with him and book one:

Carl says: “Thanks to everyone who has played Acoustic Sundays this past year. It has been geat to hear so many fantastic acts every month and I hope this will continue throughout the new year.”

On All FM / 96.9FM / AllFM.org tonight

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

I’m on Vicki Richardson’s Night Moves show from 1am-3am this morning. I’ll be playing a few of my tracks, chatting, and hopefully playing live, although I managed to drop a PA system on my finger the other day, so not 100% sure about that.

So, yup – on air in 10 minutes’ time. You can listen online at allfm.org…. or on 96.9 FM near Manchester, UK!

Urmston – Guitar Recording night

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2009

Tony and the guys at the Urmston open mic / jam night, have mailed to say that the next open mic will take the form of a special “Recording Guitars” workshop — that’s at their next meeting on 15th December 09.

The organisers say:

We will bring both hardware and computer based recording systems, and give a tutorial covering the basics of multi-tracking with particular emphasis (of course) on recording acoustic guitars followed by a Q&A session. Let me know in advance if you have specific questions

I also hope to invite the local Roland/Boss Hi-Tec demonstrator Mark Hassall to bring some demo kit along (an hopefully do a feature spot with his current band “John The Dancer”) to illustrate what is available to suit a range of budgets (or that last minute Christmas present request?).

Anybody who wants to go along, can get in contact with them via their website.

I’ve not been to the night myself yet, but I’ve heard it’s pretty good..
