The Intro

Post by Nicko » Thu Sep 14, 2017 6:23 pm

Greetings from Nottingham, England.
Came across this site whilst re-stringing my 1977 Alhambra and liked the look of it. Now largely retired, I first took classical lessons to improve my technique for playing traditional music, fell in love with the classical repertoire and ended up doing some moderately successful teaching; worked with a barn dance band, solo, and used folk music and dance as therapy with adults with learning disabilities. Still playing occasional folk gigs using the Alhambra and a Martin 00028 (not sure whether to admit to the banjo and melodeon...oops), and still enjoy arranging and editing, if only to keep brain and ear active! Great admirer of Julian Bream both as a performer and a superb editor. Too many influences to mention other than my teacher, the late and greatly missed Robin Pearson.

Greetings from down south Nicko 8) sounds good and look forward to your contributions. I too play in a barn dance band, and teach at a place involved with music therapy.
