Welcome back Flake Brown!

Very difficult to describe this wonderfully clever, talented, funny and poignant performer… You’ll just have to come and see/hear for yourself!
Here he is:


Bom-Bane poster online.jpgOverall this is a genuinely warming piece of musical theatre delivered with skill and panache by Bridge. It stays confident in its calmness and the hour glides by. Debbie Bridge carries off all the well-chosen songs. Without microphone she’s raw, real live and spot on.” – Paul Levy – Fringe Review

“An adept storyteller, Bridge is likable and ebullient, versatile and purposeful in bringing tragicomic Anita to life. If you’ve ever slept in your tap shoes, belted a Babs-Judy-Liza medley in the shower or were picked last for every sport, Miss Givings should take pride of place on your festival agenda; a perfectly pleasant way to spend an evening.” – Amy Holtz – Broadway Baby

A tribute to American composing legends Samuel Barber, Amy Beach, Leonard Bernstein, Aaron Copland and the Gershwins.

“Staggering playing…a blistering session. He is a mighty, mighty fine player.” Phil Jackson, South Live, BBC Southern Counties
“Fantastic…an absolute pleasure”
  BBC Radio Solent.
“..this guy has his guitar so powerfully under his spell that we haven’t seen or heard anything like him on L&L in a long, long time. Interested in looping and layering? This is how you do it.”

Review 27 April  2017, ‘Artist Of The Day’ Rob Johnston

Rob Johnston hails from Hampshire and has been writing, performing and recording his unique style of instrumental guitar music and songs for many years in Art Centres, clubs and major Acoustic and Folk Festivals . He has played live on BBC Radio several times and has received impressive reviews for his work.
Rob has a stunning guitar technique that blends many styles (both finger picking and plectrum) and he uses multiple tunings to enhance the sound he makes. (Martin Simpson, Bert Jansch, John Renbourn and Pierre Bensusan are key influences in forming his own style.)
Not afraid of a bit of technology, Rob uses looping effects to add intricate layers of melody and guitar percussion to his instrumental pieces and his subtle and poetic songs.
The latest Album, Message to the Moon (Wooden Box Records) is a showcase for the rich and emotive range of ideas that this unique and skilled player can produce.
