Friday 11th October 2019: a welcome return the excellent Steve Hicks and Lynn Goulbourn for another evening of music at the Hinckley ACT.
The music that Steve and Lynn make as the duo ‘Hicks and Goulbourn’ is characterised by pure acoustic tones, reflective lyrics, well crafted arrangements and intricate, complex guitar work. Whilst the genres in their typical sets are wide ranging there is no compromise in quality and their live performances are interspersed with engaging anecdotes and humour.
Special guest Jenny Biddle.
About Steve Hicks and Lynn Goulbourn
Whilst Lynn has had no formal training, singing has been a passion throughout her life and more recently she has enjoyed attending vocal and challenging harmony workshops in Cumbria and Shropshire, led and inspired by Maddy Prior and Abbie Lathe.
Steve was 13 when he started playing guitar. Motivated by his dad’s promise of a decent guitar, Steve agreed to take lessons. Early tuition was in the classical genre and then later, he studied fingerstyle jazz guitar with Duck Baker. Nowadays you could expect to hear Steve, seemingly effortlessly, play classic ragtime, swing jazz, blues, Celtic, early and modern classical pieces… all with an ease that will leave you spellbound!
