Oli Brown at Darlington Arts Centre R’n’B club – video

Young British guitar player Oli Brown and his band put on a great show at Darlington Arts Centre R’n’B club on Friday 20th May. Thanks to Ian and Mike for the invite. I did a short interview with Oli which was broadcast on yesterday’s Blues Show on BishopFM – I’ll link to it separately here later.

Here’s a couple of videos, (the sound in the room was, of course, much better than these videos show) there’s more at my YouTube channel.

Great Guitar Straps

I’ve always liked a good guitar strap – not just functional but pleasing to the eye too. These beaded straps made by Christine Rea are certainly functional and great to look at – she’s made straps for many musicians, including Kenny Loggins, The Eagles and George Strait.
