Lil' Ian at Needingworth Festival, Cambridge

Well, here we are in 2017 and nearly three years since we moved back to the UK. Pretty much most of last year was taken up with things other than music and am now hoping that 2017 I can get back into it.

With a new year comes some definite changes in what I am going to be playing. Along with the blues that I currently play will be, as you would expect some new blues numbers. However, I am in the process of putting together a 'Nashville' set and a 'Jazz' set. As part of the former will be some numbers covered by the likes of Johnny Cash and Maybelle Carter/Sam McGee, a few numbers covered by the likes of Doc Watson and Merle Travis. In the latter genre i.e. 'Jazz' I'm going to cover the usual suspects e.g. Sweet Georgia Brown, Georgia On My Mind, Ghicken Ain't Nuttin' But A Bird, Autumn Leaves etc.

As usual I will point out that I am always looking for gigs - whether that be a club, festival, house-concert or a private party. You can get in touch with me via the Contact page, Facebook or Twitter. Hope to see you somewhere soon.
