~Most musicians have had some kind of musical background to give them the inspiration to pick up a guitar and create a profitable career out of it.
 Gary Boyle is no exception.

Having moved to the UK at the age of 8, Gary was already forming an interest in music. By his teenage years he began performing in small clubs.

As the years progressed so did Gary’s ability. His performance technique opened the door for him to perform with several notable musicians these included:-

  • The Rolling Stones
  • Dusty Springfield
  • Brian Auger and the Trinity
  • Soft Machine,
  • Bert Jansch
  • Norma Winstone.

From rock and roll to jazz fusion, Gary encompassed all the genres. In the late 1970’s he was given the accolade New Star in the Melody Maker Poll and his first solo album, The Dancer, won the Pop/Jazz Award at the Montreux International Jazz Festival.

Having explored the above genres, Gary was keen to invest considerable time in traditional folk. It was here where he worked with the following three musicians:-

  1. John Etheridge
  2. Jim Mullen
  3. Eberhard Weber.

A man of many trades you could say as he also developed a niche for teaching and has taught at both Wigan & Leigh College and the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts.

Gary’s band consists of these key musicians:-

  • Gary Boyle - Guitars
  • Gary Culshaw - Bass
  • Jonathan Hartley - Drums

Now he’s coming back to the North West for an intimate performance at The Continental on Saturday 18th January 2020 with an 8pm start. Gary will be working his magic in the Snug Sofa session by the fire and the great news is the evening is completely free!

The Continental is located at South Meadow Lane Preston, close by the Avenham and Miller Parks. It’s a quiet backdrop to enjoy some excellent live music courtesy of Gary.
