Colin MacPhail & Mark T Newman – Fingerstyle Fundraiser for our pantry // The Art House // 10.8.2023

Two fantastic local acoustic fingerstyle acts on our stage, raising funds for our community pantry!

About the acts:

Colin MacPhail is an acoustic fingerstyle guitarist with an eclectic repertoire that has ingredients from the modern fingerstyle of Clive Carroll, Will McNicol and Gordon Giltrap to well-known and loved pieces from Erik Satie, Pat Metheny and Scott Joplin. Additional flavourings come from the acoustic works of Eric Johnson, Rory Gallagher, Dominic Miller and Joe Satriani.

Colin’s first gig at the Art House was _supporti_ng Will McNicol along with Jonny Vernham who, sadly, won’t be able to make it tonight.

Mark T Newman is a singer songwriter acoustic duo inspired by the Laurel Canyon troubadours of the seventies. Mark and Tina blend genres from English folk and blues to west coast.

.The livestream for this event will be available exclusively to our Patreon community – a link will be sent out on the day.

More about Colin MacPhail in his own words:

“What I play is kind of genre-agnostic, or even eclectic, which sounds a bit better than the hotch-potch which it really is…

What you’ll hear are instrumental pieces and arrangements from modern acoustic guitar fingerstyle, modern jazz, classical, ragtime, folk, pop, blues and Celtic.

Composers on my palette are – Clive Carroll, Will McNicol, Gordon Giltrap, Pat Metheny, Erik Satie, Scott Joplin, Bill Withers, Al Petteway, The Beatles, Davy Graham, Procol Harum, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Rory Gallagher, Sting and Dominic Miller.”
