Solo performer

You can book me as a solo performer. I can be self-contained (i.e. I provide all equipment) or I can use your PA, if you have one. I utilise a looper pedal, which enables me to 'loop' a section, or sections, of guitar and then play over them - in real-time.  I also use a vocal harmoniser, which creates vocal harmonies in real-time. The practical upshot of this is that I can provide simple guitar and vocals in one moment, whilst then combining multiple guitars and vocals at another. This helps to prevent folks getting bored, or everything sounding much the same. For a similar reason, I tend to play fairly short songs - which helps retain the audience attention. I don't use backing tracks or any pre-recorded material.

Fees are dependant upon how long you require me to perform for. I can cover up to about two hours if needs be, with a couple of breaks; but it's more usual to perform for two 45 minute sets.

I perform a wide variety of material, mostly covers but with a few original songs included.

Areas covered

I can perform anywhere provided that transport fees are covered, but realistically speaking, I cover North Lancashire and South Lakeland / Cumbria areas of the UK.


Duo / band

I also perform with many talented colleagues, often as a duo ~ sometimes as a full band. Simply let me know your requirements. I'm available for all events, including private house parties / concerts.

Here is a brief bio that venues can use on their web sites or for other promotional efforts:
 
"Robin performs and eclectic mix of material; from Ray Charles to Foo Fighters, Van Morrison to Led Zepplin; with passion and sincerity. He has many years' experience as a live performer, having gigged with some of the North Wests' most accomplished musicians."
