A great night of independent singer/songwriter guitar playing at Mr Kyps
Mr Kyps is always a great place to play; after playing there on a regular basis to some enthusiastic audiences, I consider it my musical home.
Derrin Nauendorf is a great guitarist and endorsed by Yamaha guitars. Blues Matters magazine calls Derrin “Simply Spellbinding”.
We have shared a stage on many occasions. I really enjoy how his songwriting is developing. We have a different approach to writing songs and even to playing guitar and our guitars of choice but we share a lot of similar philosophies on life and that’s what song writing is about.
An Australian native, Derrin, is more of a roots-based blues musician and I am still trying to determine which genre I can be categorised by; some say roots-based folk, some say sparse, one friend, who invited me to play at the RSA, called my sound ‘music stylings’; if I am a ‘Purbeck folk musician’ it is because the lyrics are heartfelt and speak directly to the listener.
Derrin has a new studio album out later this year and lots of touring in between. We both enjoy being on the road, sharing our music.
The Mr Kyps gig is on Thursday 26 April at 8pm
