Autumn Programme for Acoustic Guitar Evenings in Formby

Posted on: Saturday, Sep 8, 2007

There may not be a huge amount of blues being played at the Six String House in Formby but I know that many readers love a talented acoustic guitarist blues or otherwise.

The $ix $tring House have just released details of their exciting autumn programme of International guitarists at The Gild Hall Formby.

The first concert on the 18th September 07 features, direct from Nashville USA, award winning multi instrumentalist Scott Shipley.

Originally from West Plains, Missouri, now living in Nashville, Scott Shipley has been performing since the age of five. His musical journey has taken him through 48 states, 20 countries, and across five continents……and counting! Singer, songwriter Scott has shared the stage with everyone from Johnny Cash to Kid Rock. His performances range from all out deep delta Blues to high lonesome Bluegrass. Scott’s show is an action packed evening of authentic American music played by a leading exponent of the guitar and mandolin. Scott will take a guitar/mandolin workshop if numbers are sufficient. (Telephone 07931276083 or email for details)

October 16th sees the arrival of Italy’s leading acoustic guitarist Danielle Bazzani.

“Best unknown players out there? There’s a guy in Italy, called Daniele Bazzani, who plays well, really well”. So says Tommy Emmanuel, who is not alone in singing the praises of this exceptionally talented and melodic guitarist. The first and only Italian player on Martin Guitars official website, Danielle is rapidly building an international reputation of the highest order performing at festivals in Nashville USA, France, Croatia, Germany, Greece and the Netherlands. Definitely not to be missed.

On the 21st November $ix $tring House sees a welcome return, by very popular demand, of Richard Smith.

Richard more than lived up to his reputation as “one of the worlds greatest guitarist” when he stunned a packed audience on his first visit to Formby last February, with playing of the highest calibre. He is a truly amazing guitarist and should not be missed. Richard will be taking a guitar workshop, so please get in touch as soon as possible if you’d like to be included (Telephone 07931276083 or email for details)
