Folk on the Stairs Pete Christie Making Waves

May 4th, 2016

Folk on the Stairs

 

This is the third song from my recent Folk on the Stairs session with Jim Chorley; ‘Making Waves’.

 

 

My good friend and musician, Andy Stone, has always enjoyed this song. ‘Making Waves‘ is always slightly changing; I rather enjoyed playing this fingerstyle version on the Lowden guitar for Folk On The Stairs.

Folk on the Stairs

 

A musical experience that singer songwriters will enjoy participating in. Jim Chorley is a top musician and top bloke, who invites you into his lovely home in Hampshire and then films us singing on his stairs. Folk on the Stairs @Folkonthestairs Love it!

 

 

I sang 3 songs, the first is ‘Waiting in the Wings‘ on the Lowden.

“…fabulous music,
idyllic hill-farm setting,
laid back atmosphere…”

 

Purbeck Folk Festival is in its fifth year, with a great Lineup again; impressively the headliner on Sunday is BBC Folk Award winners Show of Hands.

Bournemouth Folk Club. Playing there next month with Westcountry Songwriters Circle on 29 September.

 

Nice touch this year as local residents (BH19 postcodes) can come and enjoy the festival for FREE on Friday 23 August.
That would be at the bottom of my garden then!

 
 

Other than the Purbeck Folk Festival, there are also a few other music events I like to perform at on The Isle of Purbeck, such as the Square and Compass, Bankes Arms Beer and Music Festival in Studland, The Ship Inn in Langton Matravers for my neighbours and The Black Swan in Swanage.

Pete Christie live at The Beehive Swindon UK Local Swindon TV

Recording debut of ‘Seagulls’ acoustic guitar instrumental

 

I really like what ‘Swindon Tv has done with the filming of ‘Seagulls’; this is the recording debut for this quintessential British acoustic guitar instrumental; which was filmed live at my ‘Beehive Pub music event on Sunday, March 17th 2013. Credit for the great filming goes to Doug Kirby, Creative Director/ Producer Partner at Swindon Tv.

 
 

 

It was another fun gig at The Beehive, with a great audience, Landlord Andy Marcer and bar Team as always!!

 
 

‘Seagulls’ was written and performed on a George Lowden O10 Guitar. The inspiration for ‘Seagulls’ comes from living on The Isle of Purbeck, Dorset.

One audience member said “…listening to ‘Seagulls’ is like hearing a one-man Pink Floyd doing ‘Wish You Were Here’…”, others liken it to an early Peter Green from Fleetwood Mac.
‘Seagulls’ is an original Pete Christie instrumental which is performed as an extended outro to a contemporised version of ‘Oh Well’; which seems to captivate the audience. By the time ‘Seagulls’ starts the room has usually gone quiet and the audience is observed to sit mesmerised. A clear favourite with the audience and a great experience for any musician.
