Gig: Gareth Pearson – Liverpool – 01 Feb
Posted on: Saturday, Jan 26, 2008
Not a blues act but I am sure that the acoustic virtuososity of Gareth Pearson will appeal to a few bluesinthenorthwest.com readers.
Gareth Pearson is an acoustic guitar player and composer from Cwmbran, South Wales in the UK. Gareth has toured with Tommy Emmanuel, Jan Akkerman, played at the Chet Atkins Appreciation Society Convention in Nashville and was personally invited to open for Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes at their New Year Party in New York. He has also opened for Ray Davies, founder member of the legendary 60’s band The Kinks, John Renbourn, Woody Mann and others.
Gareth’s influences are wide, ranging from guitarists such as Tommy Emmanuel, Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, Jerry Reed and others but his own distinctive voice is clearly audible in his own compositions, some of which appear on his new release.
Gareth will be at the Liverpool Philharmonic Rosewald Suite on Friday 01 Feb.
