Undoubtedly one of the best guitarists in the world, John Etheridge is a prodigiously gifted and creative player whose approach to music can only be described as 'eclectic'.

Supporting John tonight are Pete Whittaker (organ) and Mark Fletcher (drums).
Artists: John Etheridge (Guitar), Pete Whittaker (organ) and Mark Fletcher (drums)
