'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman

The Cavern Club

Yesterday saw the 50th birthday of one of the most influential clubs in the world.
Well, it isn't the original Cavern, but just down the road.
I had family in Liverpool who frequented The Cavern Club pre-Beatles days and spoke of the incredible atmosphere and acts you could see.
Robin has played there on a number of occasions, the first when he was the tender age of 15, in a band called 'Spring'. He felt like he was walking into a hallowed cathedral and was very reverential. Apart from his amp blowing up, and having to borrow one from another band, it was a successful evening.
He performed there a few more times with 'Hooper' and always enjoyed the whole experience.
So Happy Birthday Cavern Club.
