Will_Gillespie_3_Guitars_c680Thursday June 11, 2015, at 8 pm, $10. “3 Guitars: Will Gillespie, ‘Mo Kauffey & Robin Lee: Pickin’ & Grinnin’ “ is a song-trading, in-the-round, workshop-style concert featuring these three singer-songwriters, together for the first time in a show, playing their original Folk, Jazz & Blues tunes, trading songs and stories, creating a casual, off-the-cuff jam-session atmosphere. You will be treated to a wide range of styles, songs and subjects, taken on an emotional journey by three men who have finely honed their skills and craft as both songwriters and as guitarists.
Will Gillespie has been described as a “one-of-a-kind finger-picking old-time crooning, genuine songwriter you absolutely must see perform” He calls his sound “Jazzed-Up Folk-Rock”: Original Rock & Roll with an air of Old-World Romance, taking Folk-Rock from the Barn to the Ballroom. www.willgillespie.ca
‘Mo Kauffey is among other things a Bluesman from Guelph, ON. Describing his approach to songwriting, he says “It is about the story, which is told by the lyrics. The lyrics are borne by the melody. The chord progression gives the melody a path. The rhythms are the ‘driving wheel’. And that is how it all makes sense to me.” www.mokauffey.com
Robin Lee is one of the smoothest pickers around. Hailing from Hamilton, Robin has a laid-back delivery both in his Chet Atkins-style finger-picking and almost conversational singing style. www.youtube.com/user/robinlajoiemusic
