Rik Warwick: Enjoying a new talent on the musical block

Alan Dearling informs us that:

Rik Warwick is a guitar finger-picking maestro. In fact, Rik is quickly becoming a cult guitarist around Todmorden, Hebden Bridge and up and down the Calder Valley in the Pennines. Superb playing on his Martin guitar, offering a range of classical, film (and video) favourites, plus his own instrumental interpretations of a range of popular tunes. If you’ve heard of the following list of guitar pickers, he may remind you of Davy Graham, John Fahey, Bert Jansch and John Renbourn. It’s most definitely not your normal ‘pub music’! Nice geezer too!

These photos and videos are from Sunday ‘sesh’ at The Pub in Water Street, Todmorden. Do go and watch and listen.

Rik keeps on confusing me (and possibly many others) by using a diverse range of surnames and even first names (alternating between Richard and Rik) – but maybe, perhaps just maybe, he’ll settle down to one identity.

As I said, ‘Maybe!’

Great guitarist…
