Highly acclaimed guitarist John Goldie is a tremendous talent both as a player and composer.
He began his career on electric guitar and at the tender age of 13 he found himself playing rock classics in various local bands in his hometown of Airdrie. He learnt to read music with his teacher and mentor Frank Henry which proved to be crucial in future years. After leaving school and playing in function bands, John was spotted by an agent who signed him up to play shows with a variety of Motown artists who were touring Europe, which he did over the next few years.
After a chance meeting with Jazz Guitarist Martin Taylor, John’s career took a radical change of direction. Picking up the Acoustic Guitar, he toured with Martin as a duo and played as part of the band Spirit of Django. Around the same time, John worked for Andrew Lloyd-Webber touring with his show Jesus Christ Superstar.
During that period on the road, John also started composing on the acoustic guitar. The resulting demos found their way to Germany and into the hands of record label owner Peter Finger who invited John over to Germany to record a cd at his studio, which turned out to be ‘The View from Here’, his first solo cd.
John subsequently signed to Scottish label Watercolour Music and has released 4 albums for the label, ‘This Time and Place’, ‘Open 4 Closure’, ‘Picked In the Past’ and his new album ‘Chocolate Maze’. Both ‘Chocolate Maze’ and ‘Open 4 Closure’ features John with his band, showing a different side to his playing while ‘A Little Of What You Fancy’ and ‘Picked In The Past’ features reworkings of classic rock ad pop songs, arranged for acoustic guitar by John. The albums have received a string of 5 star reviews and even won praise from Ronnie Woods, Brian May and Andy Fairweather Low.
John is now recognised as one of the most revered players on the acoustic circuit undertaking worldwide tours, taking in USA, Asia and Europe as well as collaborating with some of the world’s greatest players, including Tommy Emmanuel, Ike Isaacs and George Benson. In fact George asked John to play a private concert for him and his band after one of their concerts in Scotland. John was also asked recently to play with The Faces at the Royal Albert Hall which he described as ‘a surreal but amazing experience!’
A fantastic opportunity to see John play in the beautiful and intimate surroundings of Lodge at Lochside. BYOB, non alcoholic refreshments available to purchase. Stovies served during the interval (included in ticket price)
