Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Sorry to report but after feeling grotty for a few weeks and on coming back from the festival at Switzerland, Aynsley's come down with a case of pneumonia which has seen him taken to his bed, a hospital bed for a few days.

This has meant that tomorrow's (April 13th) Farnham; Maltings solo show has been cancelled; not a decision Aynsley takes lightly, but obviously has had little choice.

The Netherlands & Germany dates starting on the 21st April are still going ahead - so far - but check Aynsley's website or venue nearer the time for confirmation.

Get well soon, kidda.....

Meantime - here's Aynsley jamming with Laurence Jones in Basel...  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ip6nPnrdbew

Saturday 15th July 2017

Aynsley is playing, if not his first US show, then a very rare one at the Playing With Fire Festival, Omaha. As well as his band, Steve, Boneto & Andy, he's also bringing over Ben Poole and meeting up with Tommy Castro, so expect some fretboard fireworks.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

15th Dec, 2017

There’s no festive knitwear in sight nor a sleigh bell to be heard but Aynsley’s December visit to The Cluny is as much a part of my Christmas build-up as carollers roasting on an open fire. Not that means to imply any “Grinch” like comparisons as once these “four musketeers” let loose they spread a lot of joy and merriment.

As usual, we have the dynamic backline of Steve and Boneto in perfect synchronicity and giving great solo outbursts during Hyde. Aynsley, as ever, wielding the guitars as a master swordsman with foil, rapier & sabre, dextrous, supple and deadly. And then, a new face, a hirsute face, Lee, behind the keyboards, full and fruity - and that was just his shirt; giving riposte, remiss & passata-solo to Aynsley’s flurries, especially during Tore Down.

The vast majority of the show was balanced between Aynsley’s two most recent albums, from the opener All Your Love; Il Grande Mafioso; Other Part of Me; Home; Possession; the main exception being Purple Rain, trimmed to sit in the main set. Try as he may, I think Aynsley’s still of the mind to move on from this classic cover but sometimes you’ve got to yield to fan pressure.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

I have been wanting to see Aynsley for a few years now and finally got the chance 2 weeks ago when we were in the UK. We had planned our trip around Joe's Hampton Court show and kept holding off on buying airline tickets until we saw the tour schedules for some artists we really wanted to see. Aynsley's tour was finally announced for that month and thankfully he was doing a show somewhat close to the time of Joe's. We flew in on the 6th in the morning and after dropping our suitcases off at our friends house, we jumped on a train to Leicester. Aynsley was doing one of his solo shows there and it truly was one of the best shows I've been to in a while. It was just one beautiful song after another. I could have sat there and listened for hours. I love his voice and his guitar playing is phenomenal as well. It was such a treat to be there and the venue had beautiful lighting plus great sound. So truly all the planets had aligned for this one. He is a really nice guy and we ended up talking with him for nearly 45 minutes after his show. He was telling us he collects amps and has quite an extensive collection. He'd love to talk with Joe about gear since they both are collectors. Hope he gets the chance to at some point. After I told him where we were from and about my large youtube channel he was excited to hear I was filming the show for the Americans. If the videos help spread the word about him here in the States then that would be a wonderful thing. I sure would love for him to come here and do a tour.  Here are the songs he played. Would love to see him again and with his band as well.

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Sounds like another convert.....  Great report on the show, Aynsley's solo gig are a bit special, so thanks for sharing. Good that you got a good post show chat with him too, he'll chat for ages about guitars, amps and probably now his new son (Zander James).

Re: Welcome back Aynsley Lister!!!

Also for the budding guitarists, from the novice to the adept; 2019's Guitar weekends with Aynsley & co .

From Aynsley & Steph:-
Some of you have already seen the ALGW events page has been updated.. It's official.. We've now booked next year's GUITAR EVENT(S) OF THE YEAR!
By popular request, we've re-booked back at Denham Grove for all those who couldn't make it this year. The hotel has been under new management for the past year and we've re-negotiated with them. Unfortunately the costs (everywhere) have been increased for next year so for the first time ever we've had to put the price up. We've only increased the rate by the price increase we've been given, so next year's events will stand at £355 per person.

For all those wanting Buxton, don't worry - we'll be back there later in the year in 2019 and will be holding the songwriter course, which will also feature Andrew Price, (who's currently working on a similar project locally in Leicester). Apologies we didn't get round to that this year.. I've had my hands a bit busy recently!

As usual.. Let me know if you'd like a place and I'll get the bookings started!
