Jon Gomm European Tour


Jon Gomm is an innovative guitarist, who manages to combine percussion, rhythm and lead on one single acoustic guitar - a worn-down customised Lowden that he calls "Wilma".

I first met Jon through the uk.music.guitar newsgroup, and was lucky enough to see him perform (and to perform with him!) at a subsequent UKMG event. He's currently touring Europe, and will be playing the Freilichtbühne in Düsseldorf (sadly no Cologne dates) on the 18th Feb.

He's an incredible player, but he's not just impressive guitar pyrotechnics, using his unusual style to support his songwriting, and well worth a listen. I'm definitely off to see him.
