GAVIN has been involved in Guildford's live music scene for over thirty years. He set up the town's first Open Mic Night at Beaver's Bar in 1997, and then set up and ran the GUILDFORD SONGWRITERS sessions at The Electric Theatre in 2001/02. He has been coordinating and hosting the hugely successful GT OPEN MIC SESSIONS in Guildford for the last three years.

The sessions take place at The King's Head (25-27 King's Road, (off Stoke Road) Guildford, Surrey GU1 4JW Tel: 01483 568957) every Thursday evening from 8.00pm, and there is always an extraordinary combination of musical talent on the Players List. Gavin hosts the evening, and runs the sound desk for all acts. The evenings are hugely popular with both performers and audiences alike, and the Players List is normally booked about six weeks in advance.
