Band on the Wall presents the singer, songwriter and the son of legendary guitar great Merle Travis for a night of finger pickin’ guitar heaven at Manchester’s Greenroom.
Famous for his dextrous and dazzling picking style which takes over where his father left off, Bresh has played with the best of them including Marcel Dadi, Frances Cabrel and Albert Lee and shared audiences with everyone from Bob Hope to Gordon Lightfoot. He guest starred with Chet Atkins and Steve Wariner on the TNN special A Salute to the Country Greats and has hosted his own successful weekly television variety show called Nashville Swing, and was a regular on Dinah! and the Merv Griffin Show.
Travelling with an array of custom built guitars, Thom Bresh is perhaps best known for his signature handcrafted Dualette – the unique two-sided guitar that he refers to as “My Band“. It’s a custom signature Plummer attached to a synthesizer creating incredible instrument replications, (such as a horn section, piano, and strings), and his Unity Special 18 inch archtop, (a state of the art version of Merle Travis’ famous Gibson Super 400 Special). Expect this to be a night of dazzling virtuosity, beautiful music and great company up close with one of country’s great players.
Doors open at 7.30pm.
