Will McNicol and Luke Selby

Saturday 1st October 2016, doors open 7:30pm

Will McNicol and drummer Luke Selby have been gaining rave reviews for their live performances up and down the country. The duo draw on many influences, from Brazilian sambas through driving African rhythms, from Celtic folk melodies to American blues. Combining this worldwide diversity with Will & Luke's instrumental virtuosity and musical understanding has created an exhilarating live show, full of surprises, which has gained them more than a few standing ovations. Will McNicol was Guitarist Magazine's "UK Acoustic Guitarist of the Year" in 2011.
