Derrin Nauendorf and Pete Christie at Mr Kyps Poole Dorset UK

April 9th, 2012

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.

Pete Christie and Alex Roberts Live @ The Dolphin, Blandford Forum, Dorset

March 3rd, 2012

Pete Christie and Alex Roberts Live @ The Dolphin on Wednesday, March 14th 2012 – Bringing UK Roots Movement to Blandford Forum

 

Pete Christie and Alex Roberts always have a great musical experience when they perform together. They first started performing on occasion together at ‘Sirius’; a much missed and wonderful ‘listening’ music event, at The Tudor Grange, in Bournemouth. Something unexpected and musically inspiring always happens, arising from a relaxed musical respect and a love of traditional hand made musical instruments.

 

The musical styles of Pete Christie and Alex Roberts compliment each other:

 

Pete Christie is a powerful acoustic folk and roots & Anglicana singer songwriter, who has an individualistic fingerstyle guitar technique, who plays from the heart and sings from the soul.

 

Alex Roberts blends genres from baroque to blues, with a warm soulful voice, finger-style guitar, some fine lapsteel playing, mandolin, and a stompbox to boot.

 

…the audience always get swept up in it.

Some of the live music venues that have shared Pete Christie and Alex Roberts are The Latest Music Bar in Brighton, The Half Moon, Putney and on numerous occasions, Mr Kyps, Poole, such as ‘Pete Christie and Friends’, ‘3 Guitarists’: Derrin Nauendorf, Pete Christie, Alex Roberts.

 

One very special event they performed together was Pete Christie’s music concept ‘Part 3’; a sell out collaborative event: 3 singer songwriters in a ‘songwriters’ circle’, share the stage throughout the event, with equal billing. The musicians play their solo songs and also add additional guitar technique and harmonies to each others songs. Lou Brown being the third musician.

 

Shortly after the ‘part 3’ event, the BBC aired a similar show; notably the episode with Richard Thompson, Suzanne Vega and Loudon Wainwright held special appeal for Pete Christie; who has incorporated and contemporised Richard Thompson’s ‘Beeswing‘ and Loudon Wainwright’s ‘There’ll be lots of drinking in heaven’ into his live music set.

 

Pete Christie and Alex Roberts can be heard playing, Pete Christie’s classic song ‘Waiting In The Wings’, on a live recording, done by Sound Engineer, Richard Clarke, at Mr Kyps, Poole, Dorset

In 2011, Pete joined forces with Alex Roberts in his venture to bring like minded musicians together in the UK Roots Movement alongside Wille and the Bandits, Rory Ellis, Andy Grant, The Wishbones, and Hip Route. Artists of integrity who share the true philosophy of the troubadour and offer promoters and proprietors a stable of artists of proven quality and reliability.

Derrin Nauendorf Pete Christie Alex Roberts – Bob Dylan Tribute @ Mr Kyps

May 30th, 2011

Derrin Nauendorf, Pete Christie, Alex Roberts pay tribute to Bob Dylan’s ‘I Shall Be Released’ for their encore song together

‘In the Round’ at Mr Kyps event with Derrin Nauendorf, Pete Christie and Alex Roberts

March 21st, 2011

Its not often that 3 musicians with individual and accomplished guitar techniques get the chance to perform on the same stage. ‘In the Round’ is the perfect setting for an audience to get close to the music and feel they are part of the show, without having to join in.

Mr Kyps had just installed a new sound system but you can rely on Chris Young (aka Percy), the sound engineer, to found the levels and sound a musician wants.

Alex Roberts kicked the night off with some beautiful songs and fancy fingers on the lap steel, then bakalia, then guitar; followed by Pete Christie who had some new surprises, a classic ‘The Ballad of Lucy Jordan’ and amazed anyone who is used to Pete’s ‘epics’, with what must be a contender for the shortest song in history, just to keep us guessing what’s next.

Derrin Nauendorf, headlined and made his Yamaha guitar sound like 3 instruments and introduced an innovative hi tech sound hole cover all the way from his recent German tour…2 strategically placed beer mats.

Another good night!

Tim Heywood’s Music Blog – Pete Christie Live @ The Thomas Tripp Christchurch

February 12th, 2011

After a fun Pete Christie music event at The Thomas Tripp, Tim Heywood, one of the hardest working Bournemouth ‘gigster’/ reviewer / Hope FM radio presenter / judge at DUMA / musician / had time to focus on his informative Local Music Scene blog.

(worth reading if you were at a gig, or especially, if you missed a gig)


Mr Christie wows the Tripp

After doing a bit of delivery running around, I land at the gig that I started with. Pete is on form mainly just playing his guitar unaccompanied by the normally ever-present loop pedal.

Even so he is entertaining not just with the songs, but the overall presence – looking around for people to pick on, yet always making himself the butt of the joke, throwing in stories and anecdotes to boot.

I won’t mention some of the outrageous items Pete’s done tonight – those that are also here will know what I’m referring to – however as ever he finishes with an increasingly extended Easy Come Easy Go, using the loop pedal to full multi-voice effect.

If one hasn’t had a chance to experience Mr Christie in one of these up close and personal gigs, please make a point of doing so real soon.

He is playing at Mr Kyps soon, and is totally able to fill that stage with sound and quips, however it is with the close, visible audience that I enjoy Pete the most.
