Bryan Baker: set to appear on Guitar Techniques CD

The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance was proud to welcome one of the most innovative guitar virtuosos, Bryan Baker, to the UK for an exclusive masterclass at their London facility on 8 September 2011.

Bryan's career has spanned the globe since he began performing at the age of 13. Today he is considered one of the world's most accomplished virtuoso musicians. Classical, jazz, electronica and most certainly rock, are all genres Bryan has mastered and shares with audiences all over the world. During the course of this masterclass he covered the principle topics of rhythm, melody and energy, and how they are often overlooked and under-investigated by most musicians. And students were able to learn how to elicit these elements more effectively from their own playing.

Prior to the masterclass, Guitar Techniques conducted a filmed interview with Brian, at the Institute, which will feature on the cover CD of a future edition of the magazine.

Bryan’s LA based rock band Black Baptista has just released its album debut titled “Thread the Needle” July 2011. He has also compiled his experiences in Principles of Music, a book which delves into original and thought provoking methods of improvising and composing, as well as his philosophical look at the totality of a musical experience. He is currently touring the UK and the Netherlands with Bob van Luijt.

Wilko Johnson: will perform songs on Later With Jools Holland

Wilko Johnson, guitarist and founding member of Dr. Feelgood, will perform songs on Later With Jools Holland on Tuesday September 27th and Friday September 30th. The BBC 2 television appearance falls in the middle of his current nationwide UK tour.

Wilko’s remaining concerts are as follows:
Bilston The Robin Thurs 29 Sept
London Islington Academy Fri 30 Sept
Manchester Academy Sat 1 Oct
Nottingham Rescue Rooms Sun 2 Oct
Gloucester Guildhall Thurs 6 Oct
Falmouth Pavilion Fri 7 Oct
Exeter Phoenix Sat 8 Oct
Brighton Komedia Sun 9 Oct

Wilko is accompanied by Norman Watt-Roy (bass), and Dylan Howe (drums). Special guest is award-winning blues guitarist Ian Siegal. Box Office: 0871 230 1101,

In 1971, Wilko first made his name when he formed Dr. Feelgood; a British pub rock band from Canvey Island, Essex. Known for their energetic live shows, their first two albums, Down by the Jetty (1974) and Malpractice (1975), were hugely popular and influential. By 1976, their live album, Stupidity was No.1 in the official UK album chart. By the time Dr. Feelgood released their fourth album, Sneakin’ Suspicion (1977), Johnson left the group and to pursue a solo career, and in 1980 he became a member of Ian Dury and the Blockheads.

In 2009, Johnson starred in Julien Temple’s “Oil City Confidential,” an award-winning documentary about Dr. Feelgood, and recently starred in HBO's fantasy TV series “Game of Thrones.”
