Guitar legend Gordon Giltrap heads back to city

Gordon Giltrap

Acoustic guitar legend Gordon Giltrap is returning to Preston for Second Intimate Gig.
He will be in the city on October 25 for his second sold-out show at St Joseph’s Parish Hall after playing in the hall last June.

He was originally invited to play in the city by local resident Francis Lawson and his friend Brendan Cook.

Francis and Brendan, who go by Fran and Bren, became Giltrap fans after the release of his album Visionary in 1976. Years ago, after they met at one of his concerts.

Giltrap extended an invitation to play in Preston if they ever rented a venue.

And he kept his promise last summer when he made his way to Preston to perform for a small crowd of around 100 local fans.

Giltrap began his career more than 45 years ago and has released more than 30 albums over the years.

With his own personal style, he’s perfected his sound and played with the likes of Brian May, Rick Wakeman and the London Symphony Orchestra.

His range crosses the genres of folk, blues, pop, classical and rock.

What happens when you mix what is - arguably - the world's most interesting record company, with an anarchist manic-depressive rock music historian polymath, and a method of dissemination which means that a daily rock-music magazine can be almost instantaneous?

Most of this blog is related in some way to the music, books and films produced by Gonzo Multimedia, but the editor has a grasshopper mind and so also writes about all sorts of cultural issues which interest him, and which he hopes will interest you as well.
