Starting time: Doors open 8pm for 8:45 start
New York-based Woody Mann is a fantastic guitarist. He not only has great technique but he brings an incredible sense of adventure and creativity to his playing.
"This is one of those names that should be uttered only in hushed tones. Not only was he taught by the peerless guitar picker the Rev Gary Davis, but Mann has played with Son House, Bukka White and John Fahey and has studied jazz under the great Lennie Tristano. In between giving lessons to Paul Simon and accompanying Dori Previn, he has also managed to cut some dazzling music, both by himself and in collaboration with performers such as Jo-Ann Kelly and bluesman John Cehpas. Don't miss a chance to see him; you are unlikely to hear anything- or anyone – better in the fields that Mann has chosen to master." – THE LONDON TIMES.
Plus : Julie Ellison, described by Ralph McTell as "a terrific guitarist who also writes great songs".
A great evening - not to be missed!
