John Martyn Gathering

The John Martyn Summer Gathering – a celebration of John’s music! Come along and play John’s songs or listen and enjoy!


A glystening John Martyn Gathering of both players and fans of John’s music featuring guitar players’ clinics, open mic and closing concert.

The venue is confirmed from 11.00am on Saturday June 8th 2013, The Gate Hangs Well, Lewin Bridge, Fosse Way, Syston, Leicester, LE7 1NH. Telephone: 01162 609 242. Camping is available on-site at the venue on Saturday night and it’s free! Anyone who’s camping can also get breakfast at the pub on Sunday morning for £5.00 a head but they’ve asked if I can let them know numbers for breakfast in advance. Further details from David on 07XX5 9XXX3.

There will be workshops, clinics and general jamming during the day and a bit of a gig in the evening.

Ian NotActually McGeachy has volunteered to cover the electric / pedal side of things. William Milne has also bravely stuck his head above the parapet but it would be great to have some more people sharing – maybe some ‘Song-specific’ workshops? We’ll be happy to share anything JM that we know with anyone who’ll listen, as several bus queues will attest! A high quality PA and an experienced sound engineer will be available so all we actually need to make it a great day is you!

There will be a full set from around 9.30 in the evening and it would be great if we could have volunteers for an open mic type affair prior to that.  Nick Drake songs and similar are all welcome!
