Here it is for all of you Spooky Ghost-hunters that could not make it to the show in New York this month…
We had a great night, a pretty full house and a general good vibe and a few laughs.
I tried to play some of the new material, including a new one for the first time off “Viral Times Vol 3” – VT 48 (Air Chords) – My friend Duncan Sheik who came told me I was really good on Air Guitar …
I also tried out a new arrangement of a Bert Jansch / David Bowie mash-up on one of Bert Jansch’s Yamaha Acoustic Guitars which came my way. I explain all on the show. Oh, and I played one of the Nick Drake songs from the Pink Moon show just to balance it out.
Hope you can find time to make a cup of tea and have a listen thru.
I have included some single tracks also for those of us in a hurry below. But you are missing all the jokes …

I was so pleased to be asked to contribute to a project started by the Bert Jansch Foundation.
The foundation had the idea to send two of Bert’s Yamaha guitars around the world and have guitar players contribute to celebrating Bert’s contribution as a guitar player and artist.
Here is a link to the youtube and the introduction will explain all
For Around the World in 80 Plays, David Bowie’s musical director (2003-2010) plays a mash-up of one of Bert’s most enduring arrangements, Davy Graham’s Angie, and one of Bowie’s greatest hits.
Musicians around the globe are saluting Bert Jansch, the legendary guitarist and singer song-writer who would have turned 75 in November 2018. The Bert Jansch Foundation is sending a special guitar, the Yamaha TransAcoustic – the latest incarnation of Bert’s favoured L series – across continents from artist to artist, enabling musicians to connect with his timeless music and enduring legacy. See who is taking the guitar on the next stage of its journey at https://80plays.bertjanschfoundation….
