Venue: The Friendship
Date: Friday 25th August
Gavin is a professional double bass and electric bass player, performing regularly throughout the UK and abroad in a variety of performing and recording projects.
In March 2017 Gavin will release his solo album The Family Tree on ASC Records featuring Jeff Guntren on tenor saxophone, Jim Faulkner on guitar and Dave Walsh on drums. This new album features the double bass Gavins father built for him over a 15 year period. It is a fantastic instrument which sounds even better than it looks! On two short interlude tracks Gavin plays a steel string acoustic guitar also built by his father back in 1967. Recorded at 80 Hertz Studios in Manchester, ‘The Family Tree’ contains ten original compositions by Gavin influenced by the themes of fatherhood, friendship and home. You can listen to a sample of the album here. There will be some concert dates with this band in 2017/18.
