An Evening with Jon Gomm… and an afternoon masterclass too!

Join us for an Evening with Jon Gomm in the beautiful Spanish Ballroom at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens for the final event of the Wordpool 2011 festival.

‘Jon Gomm is an acoustic singer-songwriter with an incredible virtuoso guitar style, where he uses one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, basslines and sparkling melodies all at the same time, and combining styles from blues and jazz to rock and pop. The emphasis is still on… the soulful vocals and songwriting however, and his original material is influenced by everything from Robert Johnson to Radiohead.

Nowadays he tours Europe, playing at festivals from Rome to Athens, has a huge cult following and is regarded by those in the know as one of the world’s most talented and innovative acoustic guitarists. Even with only one CD so far released he is already cited as an influence by many other performers. His videos are watched thousands of times within days of appearing on Youtube, and his home-recorded CD “Hypertension” has sold over ten thousand copies with no industry backing.’

Jon’s first ever single, Passionflower, has finally arrived!
