Wessex Acoustic are delighted to have the support of three of the finest musicians around on the current folk scene, PJ Wright, Guy Fletcher, and Chris Leslie.
P J Wright and Guy Fletcher
The guitar wizardry of PJ Wright and the amazing multi-instrumental talents of Guy Fletcher have come together over many years and in many guises, the most notable being folk-rock legends Little Johnny England in recent years, and now the latest folk and folk-rock super-group, TRADarrr.
They have made many appearances at Wessex Acoustic over the years at many of our varied 'homes'.
Chris Leslie has been the prime songwriter and multi-instrumentalist for Fairport Convention since 1996. In recent years Chris has escaped from the confines of Fairport Convention and blossomed out as a solo artiste. Wessex Acoustic are proud to have helped him by giving him his very first solo concert. We are delighted that Chris has been able to return every year since in the Autumn, following a rest after the amazing weekend that is Fairport's Cropredy Convention, and before they get rehearsing and preparing for the band's Winter Tour.
Chris is a very busy man and we are delighted he supports our club and honours us with return visits.
As an added bonus, regular members of the club own a genuine Benjamin Banks violin and have brought it to the club for Chris to play. A treat for Chris and us.
