Hello Everyone, welcome back to NetRhythms
Did you listen to the MIKE HARDING SHOW on Wednesday 21st May? You can LISTEN AGAIN on line until next Wednesday at
This week Mike chatted to Neil Wayne of FREE REED RECORDS about the Revival re:Masters series - a new 18-CD set of the label's classic recordings from the second wave of the folk revival. You can also read David Kidman's review of the first six releases at
The REVIEWS list this week is headed by the amazing MARTHA WAINWRIGHT's new album "I Know You're Married But I've Got Feelings Too". What a star she has become and she really shined at a sell-out performance at the Festival Hall on Monday. If you get a chance to see her any time soon, do so. She'll be touring USA with KT Tunstall in support. She plays Glastonbury on June 28th and "Later with Jools Holland" tonight - Friday 23rd May, 11.35pm BBC TWO. Mike Davies reviews her album at
TALKIN' BOUT GUITARS ... which we do a lot ... P3 Music have just launched the BETA version of, an online community featuring up to the minute news, blogs, social networking, chat, video on demand, lessons, music and real advice on gear and playing from real guitarists.  It's a mix between Facebook and TripAdvisor and will act as an online portal so guitarists can source up-to-the-minute guitar-related resources and stories from the web.  The new website will be sponsoring a number of high profile guitar festivals and shows across Europe this summer.
The site has been set up primarily as a way of P3's record company "The Guitar Label" sourcing new talent and contributors include ex-journalists and editors from Guitar Techniques and comic book The Dandy. The CEO of P3  Music is James Taylor, son of Martin Taylor MBE, whom Acoustic Guitar magazine calls "the acoustic guitarist of his generation". To date the company has worked with artists including Martin Taylor (of course!), Jeff Beck and Bill Wyman - so I should think they know what they are talking about!
From James: "We are really excited about the potential has got.  Responses from guitarists, manufacturers and festivals have been very positive.  We see the site as a place where guitarists can go to connect with each other, exchange ideas and tips, source high quality lessons and generally find out what is new, funny or remarkable in the guitar world.  The Guitar Label also hopes to use the site to find the next Hendrix, Satriani or Clapton in the process."

The Latest Album Reviews - late April 2008
We'll be bringing you the latest TOURS very shortly - but in the meantime if you get a chance, do get out to see major talent - the tour-de-force of an acoustic blues guitarist and singer, young Matt Andersen from Canada. He's in Elgin at the moment and will be working his way down the UK. On Wednesday at the Green Note, London NW1, the stage was littered with dead yellow plectrums when his set ended! Check out his music and dates at
Love, Sue
