    Chris Stern, Guitar Collector

    Chris Stern is a man who loves guitars. In fact I don’t know anyone with a bigger collection than Chris. He’s a big fan of Ralph Bown, Jim Olson and Jamie Kinscherff but his collection extends way beyond those three wonderful luthiers.

    We sat down at the 10th annual gathering of the Acoustic Soundboard UK guitar forum in Halifax in September 2019 and talked about music and guitars.

    Richard Knott

    Richard Knott is a singer-songwriter who loves acoustic guitars. That’s how we hooked up, probably in 2005 at the RMMGA gathering in Buxton, Derbyshire.

    We sat down at the 10th annual gathering of the Acoustic Soundboard UK guitar forum in Halifax in September 2019 and talked about sunburst guitars, songwriting, music as therapy, performance anxiety and a whole lot more.

    Jule Malischke

    I met Jule Malischke at the Ullapool Guitar Festival in October 2019. She played on the Friday night and was amazing to listen to. The particular highlight for me was her encore, when she played an unamplified cover of Joni Mitchell’s A Case of You. You could’ve heard a pin drop in the auditorium.

    We sat down for a chat on the Sunday afternoon. Hope you enjoy it!

In Conversation With...

The presenter’s style is very much ‘in conversation with...’ making this podcast very listenable (is that a word?)

Lasting for about 30 minutes or so, interviews are with people involved in the acoustic guitar world - players like Gordon Giltrap and Will McNicol or luthiers such as Adrian Lucas.

Cams lets the interviewers speak and gently guides the programme along with questions or comments only when the interviewer has said what they want to say on a particular subject.

I’m looking forward to seeing who Cams interviews next!
