Thread Name: Hobson and Lees - Guitar Duo
Subject: RE: Hobson and Lees - Guitar Duo
I used to be a big fan of Hobson and Lees...I saw them play at Folk Live in Woodford in 1989 and 1990. In my view they were quite unique and their playing pretty much unequaled on the local scene. John Hobson still records...goto www.johnhobson.com or google for his myspace.

The late 80s in South Manchester...I remember a vibrant music scene with Hobson and Lees and Isaac Guillory playing regulaly...what a treat...what would I have to go through to find players of that calibre now!!! 60 plus in a cold arena full of 8000 people! No thanks!
