  4. "Martin Simpson's return to the Isle of Man for his Douglas & IOM GuitarFest debuts. No-one has more successfully combined diverse elements of British, American and roots music than Martin, multiple BBC Radio 2 Folk Award winner. Widely acknowledged as one of the finest acoustic and slide guitar players in the world, his interpretations of traditional songs are masterpieces of storytelling. His solo shows are intense, electric, spellbinding and deeply moving. Whether playing American old-time music, blues, a Dylan song or his own material, Martin Simpson is unpredictable, individual, and a guitarist of immense subtlety. "One of the virtuoso instrumentalists of the English music scene" "Sounds better than ever" The Guardian. http://www.martinsimpson.com/ http://www.manxmusic.com/performer_144376.html Tickets £15 from www.Villagaiety.com (including booking fee) GuitarFest is a JonnoPromotions event supported by Island of Culture, Arts Council, Culture Vannin and Aston International Limited to all of whom, many thanks.

  5. KEN NICOL will now be performing as Gareth Dunlop has been called away to Hollywood, CA! Ken Nicol makes his debut performance for JonnoPromotions on Sunday 28th September, 2014, at Jabberwocky. Ken Nicol is a gui­tarist, singer, song­writer and pro­ducer from Pre­ston, in Eng­land. His music cov­ers the spec­trum from blues to rock, and effort­lessly takes in folk, jazz, rag­time, bal­lads and more along the way. Ralph McTell - “Ken Nicol is a con­sum­mate musi­cian. A gui­tarist of broad scope, a sen­si­tive singer and an intel­li­gent writer of songs with stir­ring melodies. A musi­cal paragon.” Maddy Prior - “It’s dif­fi­cult for me to imag­ine a more tal­ented all rounder than Ken; both as singer and guitarist.” Ash­ley Hutchings - “Prodi­giously talented.” Ken was a mem­ber of the leg­endary Albion Band from 1997 until Sep­tem­ber 2001 when he left in order to spend more time on other projects. In Decem­ber 2002, he suc­cess­fully joined forces with Steel­eye Span, work­ing with the band for eight years, most recently on their 2009 40th Anniver­sary Tour, vis­it­ing the USA and Aus­tralia. Dur­ing his time with Steel­eye he recorded four albums with the band: ‘They Called Her Baby­lon’, ‘Win­ter’, ‘Bloody Men’ and ‘Cogs, Wheels and Lovers’. Ken left the band in 2010. As well as mak­ing and pro­duc­ing music, Ken has also worked with gui­tar mak­ers Fylde gui­tars to develop the Ken Nicol Sig­na­ture gui­tar. Beau­ti­fully con­structed from cedar and rose­wood, its incred­i­ble sound led to Acoustic Mag­a­zine giv­ing this gui­tar an unprece­dented 99% rating. When he’s not tour­ing or writ­ing, he can be found pro­duc­ing projects of his own and other artists at his MVS Stu­dios in Pre­ston. Guest support from the brilliantly talented Anna Goldsmith. £15 tickets are available from Jabberwocky and also online at http://www.eTickets.im/JP 7pm doors, 8pm show Supported by Arts Council - Isle of Man and Island of Culture 2014 Tickets £15.00 from Jabberwocky and online at http://www.eTickets.im/jp

He'll be going out to schools and to IOM Soundcheck and offering different workshops for those organisations. This workshop on Saturday 25 January 2014 is intended for any band, working in any genre - here's some ideas of what you'll get: How to build a following / using online tools / how not to get ripped off. Your music video = your calling card. Thinking outside the box. How to manage a band, how to choose a manager, managing the band dynamic ... come along and bring your questions. Chris has been touring solidly for the last decade or so, so there will be plenty of meat to put on the bones of these questions and more! Starting at 11am and finishing by 1pm ... Chris T-T is looking forward to having you there. ADMISSION IS FREE OF CHARGE- however we will ask you to sign in and to complete a very simple questionnaire about your participation in the workshop. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Port-St-Mary-Town-Hall/363249277062377
