Solo Artist Series

  • Show Description
  • This show is part of our Solo Artist Series from 2 – 6 August, celebrating solo talent from the worlds of music, comedy, poetry, mind-reading, ventriloquism and more.

    John Etheridge returns with his much lauded solo show. Employing an arsenal of guitars and playing music spanning the decades and the continents, this is one of the most eclectic and all-embracing guitar extravganzas.

    From Django Reinhardt to Jimi Hendrix, the repertoire reflects the career of a man who has been associated with acts as varied as Stephane Grappelli, Soft Machine, John Williams, Nigel Kennedy, Hawkwind, Caravan. All this is delivered with humour and panache, with an appeal that goes far beyond the guitar market.

    ‘Etheridge’s Saturday solo concert managed to be wonderfully personal and mind-bogglingly varied, ranging from meditative blues to joyful Cameroonian makossa, from electronically created guitar orchestration to acoustic swing and from the intricacies of Sonny Rollins’ bop era Doxy to the simple, soulful pleasures of Carol King and Richard Thompson, all linked by equally off the cuff reminiscences and priceless observations.’ – Rob Adams ( The Scotsman) at the Edinburgh Festival
