BUSY as ever, Shelley-based guitarist and singer Kit Holmes (pictured) is back in the region with a gig in Halifax.
Head for the Square Chapel on February 22 at 8pm for a concert which will offer an evening of acoustic music.
This rising young guitar star will be joined for the concert by Allan Greenwood on guitar and Ruth Wilde on double bass. Expect an uplifting evening of music which will encompass blues, folk, country and much more.
Life continues to be as packed as ever for Kit whose music has been featured by both Bob Harris and Andy Kershaw on their BBC shows. She was asked to give a master-class at Paul McCartney's Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and to play for ceremonies at the University of Leeds when Andy Kershaw and Bill Bryson were awarded doctorates.
Kit will be sharing some of her skills with other guitarists in a workshop before the Halifax show. The workshop will run from 6.45pm to 7.15pm and will offer expert tips and advice about all aspects of guitar playing! You’ll be able to try warm-up exercises, explore tab and music, develop your technique, musicianship and performance skills.
Take along an acoustic guitar to take part or simply just listen and learn.
