‘Guitar guru’ headlined at Kontra Roots, Northampton

March 10th, 2012

What a great compliment from the organisers at Kontra Roots in Northampton, to be called a “Guitar Guru”.

 

Kontra is at Kennedy’s Bar in Irthlingborough Road, Finedon and run by Kevin Buxton and Geoff Bland; great guys who make music their life and help share it with others.

KONTRA ROOTS is an informal non-profit making organisation dedicated to promoting quality acoustic roots music in the Northamptonshire area and beyond. It founded and organises the legendary KONTRA ROOTS CLUB, as well as THE FINEDON SESSIONS concert venue, and in addition supplies acts for several first-rate venues in the area.

Musicians who played at  Kontra Roots at Club Kennedy’s Bar in Northampton on 27.01.2012  were Fred’s House, from Cambridge; some beautiful guitar playing from Jonny Martin; Kevin Buxton on his expressive harmonicas; Paul de Gallier being subtle on the cajon; Headline was Pete Christie – Purbeck singer-songwriter Folk Musician from Dorset.

 

To top it off, just down the road they have the best chippie in Northampton and Kevin Buxton extended his personal hospitality to an out of town itinerant balladeer, for the night. Thank you!

 

It’s all about the great people you meet whilst at a music event and here were some of the finest, audience and musicians, all in one room.

 

Luckily, there are 3 more special upcoming music events being organised by Kevin Buxton, that Pete Christie will be attending, in April. This time Paul Liddell will also be there, instead of being spoken kindly about by the Kontra Roots audience.

Pete Christie and Paul Liddell have been on the same bill a few times over the years and it is always great fun.
