Guitar super-trio hit the road
Clive Gregson, Mark Griffiths and Andy Roberts
THREE musicians, all featured in Hugh Gregory's book 1,000 Great Guitarists, have taken their experience of playing together in various bands, added their unique styles and created a super-trio, 'The 3 Boxes'.
The band will be performing self-penned tracks from their debut album Strings Attached, produced by John Wood (John Martyn, Nick Drake, Fairport Convention), which encompasses swing, folk, blues, ballads and beyond.
Before forming the trio, Mark Griffiths was the bass player in The Shadows (for 21 years), and prior to that he recorded and/or toured with the Everly Brothers, Duane Eddy and Mark Knopfler.
Andy Roberts has played and recorded as a solo artist and with Pink Floyd, as part of the live band for The Wall. He has also played with Cat Stevens, Kirsty MacColl and Richard Thompson.
Clive Gregson's partnership with Christine Collister, which ran between 1985 and 1992, was described as "the state of the art in British folk-rock" by Rolling Stone magazine. Clive has also toured and recorded with Richard Thompson, Nanci Griffith and Boo Hewerdine with Eddi Reader.
