Hicks and Goulbourn - New Longton

Hicks GoulbournFriends of Folk bring their spring programme of gigs to an end on Friday 7 June with two outstanding artists, Lynn Goulbourn and Steve Hicks.

Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Steve Hicks and singer songwriter Lynn Goulbourn met at a gig in 2007. With a mutual love of folk, roots and acoustic genres, their musical partnership has flourished and taken them to all corners of the UK, and to Germany and the USA.

Lynn Goulbourn is an outstanding vocalist who can handle everything from demanding traditional songs or jazz standards, to the gentlest of lullabies, in addition to providing subtle harmonies. Steve Hicks is one of the UK’s leading exponents of finger style guitar. Drawing on a repertoire that encompasses classical, celtic, ragtime, blues and folk styles. He delivers material with technical skill, astute artistic integrity and a natural sense of what it means to entertain.

In addition to the incredible range of musical styles, the honest vocal delivery and the breathtaking displays of virtuosity from Steve's guitar solos, a most engaging thing about this pair is the blend of personalities they display on stage. They are at once totally at ease with themselves and the audience. Their shows create a wonderful, memorable experience.

The night starts at 8.00pm at New Longton Village Hall, Boundary Close, New Longton, PR4 4BD. Tickets are £8 and are available on-line at  or by ringing 07837 367560. Pay on the door is also available
