Newton Faulkner

collage2For Christmas, my sister and parents gave my husband two tickets to see Newton Faulkner – an incredibly talented guitarist who manages to make 90 minutes disappear while you watch, spell-bound, as he manipulates every possible sound from a guitar. We went to the gig last week and I was blown away by what one man and a guitar could do. His hands fly around the fret from top to bottom, the rhythm is sourced by his hands drumming the guitar body without you noticing and you begin to wonder whether your eyes and ears are deceiving you and whether the sounds you are hearing are in fact being created by many musicians that are inexplicably out of sight.

If you have the opportunity to hear Newton play – take it. A unique and captivating talent.
