This is a rare opportunity to learn from one of the best in the business. Don't miss it.
A fantastic opportunity to hear about the experiences of legendary session musician and experimental Jazz/Rock guitarist, Ray Russell.
As an indefatigable session musician, he has collaborated with George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Freddie Mercury, Jeff Beck, David Bowie, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Bryan Ferry, Phil Collins, Scott Walker, Art Garfunkel, Marvin Gaye, Heaven 17, Lulu and Tina Turner (check out "Let's Stay Together" on Private Dancer) to name only a few.
Joining Ray Russell will be author & guitar historian Paul Brett.
Paul's book 'Finding Fretless' tells the remarkable tale of the discovery and rich history of an invaluable late-1960s fretless electric guitar, which was gifted to Ray Russell by none other than George Harrison, and which the Beatle fondly referred to as the 'Mad' guitar.
Come along to hear Paul talk about this instrument's amazing back story.
