Gareth Hedges
Gareth is a blessing to music lover everywhere. With dexterity, adaptability and deep-felt soul, he skilfully draws from his six and twelve-stringed guitars melodies that cut to the heart of blues, jazz and folk traditions.' (Vermont Arts, USA)
He was road manager for many American roots musicians who were performing in Europe; Bill Monroe and the Bluegrass Boys, old time banjo player Clarence Ashley, Piedmont style guitarist Tex Isley, ragtime blues guitarist Rev. Gary Davis, slide guitarist Mississippi Fred McDowell and blues piano player Curtis Jones.
He plays a wide range of blues, ragtime, jazz and greta tunes. He works extensively in the USA and has played with many wonderful musicians during his career.
Gareth's arrangement of the O'Carolan tune "Little Hill, Big Hill" has a freshness that delights the ear. He has the technical ability to make it sound effortless, and his playing never gets in the way of the music. The guitar playing is always relaxed and crystal clear and never feels rushed, even when Gareth's playing the kind of thing the rest of us only dream about.

Clive Sheard's clean finger picking and warm vocal style combine to give faithful interpretations of the songs of Reverend Gary Davis, Mississippi John Hurt. Clive is joined this evening by Dave Jeffries, an oft  time playing partner.
