    East meets West in this new musical meeting between two virtuoso players of both slide and steel guitar. Formed in 2013 after Michael Messer and Manish Pingle met during a festival in Mumbai, this trio is a not only a coming together of like-minded musicians, each with high profile reputations in their own spheres, but also an inspired exploration of the ground between Michael’s blues and steel guitar and Manish’s classical Indian slide guitar. Adding the polyrhythmic virtuosity of the highly regarded tabla player Gurdain Rayatt, the two guitarists have created a unique trio that appeals to everyone interested in instrumental brilliance and the musical connections that flow from the Ganges to the Mississippi Delta. www.michaelmesser.co.uk www.manishpingle.com www.gurdain.com Pete Webber is a virtuoso guitarist & songwriter from Bristol. From the age of fourteen he was sharing stages with many renowned British and American musicians and at seventeen he was featured with Michael Messer on the front cover of Total Guitar Magazine. After what he describes as a "period in the wilderness", Pete recently recorded and released his debut album of twelve original songs with a dark, roots-tinged musical feel, titled 'Until The Water Runs Clean'. The album has been featured on BBC 6 Music and is receiving fantastic reviews in the British music press. For this show at the Bristol Folk House Pete Webber will be accompanied by the excellent and renowned percussionist, Jack Carver. "Acoustic guitar virtuosity...love the high-precision grooving" - Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music “This debut album certainly calls the changes. A rolling acoustic firestorm..weird and fascinating. Unlike anything else this side of the Severn.” - Acoustic Magazine “Really impressive…His music speaks for itself. I don’t know what genre it is, but who cares? This is a rollicking good track.” - Ian Freedman, Blues & Roots Radio www.petewebbermusic.com
