GUITARIST MARK HOWES
Tutor & Performer
I am a Norwich based guitarist offering tuition, recording and depping services, specialising in Blues & Roots. I have 20+ years playing experience, over 10 years teaching experience at all levels and hold a DTLLS in music education.
If you are interested in any of my services please contact me on email@example.com
I have been a guitarist for over 20 years, and have covered a wide range of playing styles and musical genres, from 12 piece funk/soul bands to power trios and acoustic blues duos. My main style of playing is Blues & Roots incorporating a wide range of influences from slide guitar and blues rock lead, all the way to soul/funk/gospel style rhythm parts and country picking.
My own band is prevalent on the UK live circuit and has been nominated for best album (Dove & Boweevil Band – This Life) in the British Blues Awards, and I have been previously in the nominations list in the Blues Guitarist category too.
I am extremely passionate about music and the connections that playing with other musicians can make. I would love to hear from you about any session work, depping, gigs or upcoming jams.
“I have loved learning about blues and guitar playing from Boweevil. He not only has a wonderful and versatile playing technique, he has the ability to break it down to its component levels. I wanted to learn about blues, (and I certainly have) and I ended up also understanding rock, country, soul and bluegrass structures too. On a personal level, I find Mark a very engaging and warm human being who it has been a joy to learn from and play along with. If anyone was thinking of learning to play guitar, I couldn't be happier or prouder to recommend this great teacher and player.”
