Mark Houghton Tribute
Our next Chester meeting on May 2 will be a special tribute to Mark Houghton. We're planning on all performances to be an original composition or arrangement by Mark - and there's plenty to choose from. Most CGC members have played a 'Houghton' at one time or another, so you can either polish it up, or try out a new work. Many of Mark's publications are instantly available from the Productionsdoz website:https://www.productionsdoz.com/en/?s=mark+houghton&post_type=product&tags=1&sku=1&limit=8&lang=en&ixwps=1
Let's make May 2nd a memorable tribute to one of the country's leading composers.
Paul Costello, with Tim and Tony.
Tim Price and Tony Roberts will be supporting Paul Costello (acoustic guitar) in West Kirby later this month.
