Over the last several months I’ve been busy behind-the-scenes working on a solo guitar project. In a few months I hope to announce some exciting developments. In the meantime, you can catch up with some short videos of solo guitar improvisations by following #lockdownminiature both on Twitter and on Facebook.

support the Lewis Glucksman Gallery

The flooding in Cork, Ireland has affected the Lewis Glucksman Gallery. The gallery has hosted improvised music performances by myself with Paul DunmallMark Sanders and Jamie Smith [details…], with Franziska Schroeder [details…], and with Bruce Coates [details…]. It has also offered generous behind-the-scenes support to Stet Lab [details…].

According to the director of the gallery, Fiona Kearney:

As a result of the unprecedented flooding in Cork city on Thursday evening, 19 November 2009, the Lewis Glucksman Gallery has suffered extensive flood damage to its basement. The flooding poses a severe problem for the gallery, as the basement area housed the art stores, a major plant area and the kitchens….

The Glucksman Gallery is grateful for all the support it has received to date which has allowed the gallery to respond to this unprecedented situation with maximum effect. The gallery now faces a major financial challenge to reinstate the award-winning building for public use, and to restore damaged works in the collection.
