ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hicks and Goulbourn – quintessential acoustic music

Fingerstyle guitar virtuoso Steve Hicks and singer songwriter Lynn Goulbourn teamed up in 2007. With a mutual love of folk, roots and acoustic genres, their musical partnership has flourished and taken them to all corners of the UK, to Germany and the USA.

They thrive on the creative process of stretching established boundaries and perform mesmeric arrangements of traditional, contemporary and self - penned songs and music. Expect the unexpected …….


What they say about Hicks and Goulbourn:

Your performance was superb, you ‘smashed it’! Such fluidity of singing teamed with Steve’s awesome guitar… Excellent.

An incredibly versatile and talented duo!

Lynn’s range seems to go from down and bluesy to soaring like an angel, I’ve seen her sing on many occasions and every time there is something new to find in her voice. Steve is a guy that guitarists sit up, shut up and listen to, his finger style is nothing short of incredible.

Cool, Exciting and Fun!

I was absolutley blown away by your performance, it is quite refreshing to hear a virtuoso player put his ego on the back burner for the good of the song; you have a beautiful voice that complements the guitars wonderfully.

Steve Hicks is the secret jewel of British guitar playing.

If I was on a desert island I would have to take all my Hicks and Goulbourn recordings. If you havent heard them, do listen to some of the You Tube recordings but more importantly, go and see them live and be blown away by the beauty of Lynn's voice and Steve's awesome talent on guitar.

I cannot recall having members of the audience dancing in the isles at the club, but that certainly happened last night! It was as if everyone wanted the evening to never end . . . if you weren't there, make the effort to see this duo if you get the chance in the future. You won't regret it!

It seems there is nothing Steve Hicks cannot do with a guitar. He can play everything from Medieval music or traditional Irish dance tunes to classic ragtime and blues tunes. He can arrange, accompany and make even the most challenging transcriptions sound like they were made to be played on the guitar. He can even build the dammed things! But what I like best is the personality that always comes through in his playing. It’s a pleasure to present the music of Steve Hicks, the best kept guitar secret in Britain.


As a solo artist, Steve is signed to Acoustic Music Records in Germany and his CD 'The Rag Trade' was released in 2009. He is also a first class luthier.
