Fifth Gathering this June..

posterFor the fifth time in succession, the John Martyn Summer Gathering is to be held in Yorkshire. This is a non-profit event that stretches out over the entire weekend of the 22nd, 23rd and 24th of June. Various performing artists have been contracted but one can also expect guitar enthousiasts having workshops (so you can finally work out those tunings). Several people visiting actually knew John so it will prove to be both interesting and amusing. The venue in Hackforth Village is not very big so places are limited and so is the budget. All work is put in voluntarily. So if you have no plans for the weekend or you happen to be in the neighbourhood, this is your chance to meet some cool people. There are folks coming in from the USA, Canada, Switzerland, France and Australia this year.

Artists
Names on the poster are Rory Butler, Katie Spencer and Foster Paterson (yes, the one). Also Nick Ellis, Jon Evans Coley, Seafoam Green, Grace & Danger, The Gnomes.
Seafoam Green and Nick Ellis appear on the Friday night.
Rory Butler, The Gomes and Jon Evans Coley are scheduled for Saturday.
Sundays guest opening slot will be Grace and Danger, featuring Johns nephews... Katie Spencer and special guest Foss Paterson, will be closing the gathering on Sunday evening.

Tickets
Ticket price is £30 for the weekend; day tickets are £15.
Tickets can be purchased via Martin Byrne. Payable through bank transfer but the man also has PayPal.
And of course at the venue during the weekend itself. More information can be obtained on Facebook at the John Martyn Group.

Birthday Number 69..

Today John would have reached the age of 69. This calls for a small ceremony.
Last week I managed to find a new promo item for two Sunshine's Better remixes. Two white labels, with no description on it. And a pitch-black cover.

Let's hope for John that the sun shines better on the other side..

Summer Gathering In June

posterThe 2016 edition of the John Martyn Gathering in Yorkshire will take place on the 24th, 25th and 26th of June. Location is the famous Green Dragon. The organizers promise three days and nights of John Martyn related activities. The program features some fantastic artists, special guests, and also an open mic stage and guitar workshops.

Weekend tickets cost 30 pounds. Which is 'cheaper than Glastonbury, and you're guaranteed to see everything.' This event is on a much smaller scale, of course.
Rooms can be booked directly at The Green Dragon (details below) and there's also a camping available.

New home again..

This site has migrated again to another service provider. This is always a risky move but if you see this message, it means the operation has been successful.
Big Muff is now built on better hardware, more modern software and faster servers.

Nice new button

The giglist keeps on growing and growing. Even today. One thing I noticed is that, once you are in a certain page, you have to use the back button to travel to the other decades.
But not any more! I added some extra buttons to enable fast transfers for today's impatient people.
