Over the past 2 decades Robin Nolan has established himself as one of the worlds most respected gypsy jazz guitarists. Recent highlights include a sell-out show for Jazz FM at London's Royal Albert Hall, a standing ovation from a packed-out Lincoln Centre audience in New York, and a record deal with Dark Horse, the label set up by George Harrison.
Harrison was a fan and friend of Robin and even named him as one of his favourite guitarists.
Nolan's new album was recorded at Friar Park Studios using three of George’s famous Beatles guitars.
The Gibson J160E which has the distinction of being the only guitar used on every Beatles album, the Spanish Ramirez as famously heard on 'And I Love Her' and the 12 String Rickenbacker 360/12 used by George on the bulk of the 'A Hard Day’s Night' album.
This is the first time these guitars have been recorded since the 70's, an exciting prospect for all Beatles fans as well as lovers of the music of George Harrison and acoustic guitar.
With George Harrison, Hank Marvin and Bill Wyman as his fans, Willie Nelson said it best “You play a mighty fine guitar Robin Nolan”.
George Harrison “In these days of Cacophony it’s great to hear some proper music!”
Bill Wyman "Robin Nolan is so amazingly good!"
