Rob Muir
Rob's a regular over on Arran. I first met him in 2017 when I supported him in the PHT in Lamlash and we've been corresponding ever since. He came over to play last weekend (16 Nov 2019) and we hung out on the Sunday morning and captured a recording as we walked my dogs. We spoke about his career and got into fear and anxiety and following your heart. This is a good one!   -- Support me on Patreon and help me to invest in my content business and bring more valuable content on my Acoustic Guitar IO and Diary of a Guitar Teacher channels.

Nick Harper
Nick is one of my favourite artists of all time, so it was a real pleasure to have the opportunity not only to hear him play in the intimate setting of someone's living room in Glasgow, but also to have a chat with him about guitars and music before and after his gig. I recorded his performance on video and will be posting them up on my YouTube channel over the coming days. I've published one already, my favourite of his - This is the Beginning, a powerful song inspired by his mother as a young lass and her ringing a bell in the tower of a small French village. Imagine her laughter and the pealing of the bell still reverberating across the universe. Show notes for this are on my website: Show Notes. Visit my YouTube channel: Acoustic Guitar IO on YouTube

Gordon Giltrap
I sat down for a conversation with Gordon Giltrap in May 2018 during the 21st annual UK gathering of the RMMGA newsgroup, at which Gordon was the weekend guest. Speaking to Gordon was a real treat for me as he was part of the 60s acoustic folk boom in London in the late 1960s and played in the company of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn. I bought my first guitar after hearing Bert's documentary Acoustic Routes. We spoke of many things, including the London scene and his new signature Fylde guitar. Gordon's website is at https://www.giltrap.co.uk/.

Interview with Will McNicol
I sat down with Will McNicol at the annual UK RMMGA gathering in May 2018 at the beautiful Springhill Manor in the Cotswolds. We spoke about many things, including the Ullapool Guitar Festival and the International Guitar Foundation. Many thanks to Will for sitting with me. His latest album, Butterflies, Dragonflies and Bumblebees is available to stream and buy on his website here: http://willmcnicol.co.uk. There’s an accompanying notation/tab book for the album too, very handy if you’re anything like me and can’t get this music out of your head. It’s utterly sublime – seriously. Will plays Fylde guitars.
