MUSICIANS

MAL WEBB

Bass player in Totally Gourdgeous and one of the most scarily talented people in the world.

I'm not joking.

SONIA

I toured with SONIA in March '04 - stunning songwriter.

EMBER SWIFT

Great Canadian political songwriter

ANDREW MCCLERMONT

Fiddle/Mandolin/Guitar whiz, plays in Totally Gourdgeous - the man's a monster.

KRIS DEMEANOR

Another great Canuck.

CARL PANNUZZO

Vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and drummer for Totally Gourdgeous, Carl weaves musical magic and writes stunning songs. 

HELEN BEGLEY

The fabulous Helen Begley teaching women and girls to realise their potential on guitar. 

GUITAR MAKERS

Don't buy a mass-produced guitar from a shop - even a top name one. Go to an independent luthier. You'll get a unique instrument tailor-made to your needs that's just as good if not better for a comparable price. keep the art of making hand-crafted guitars alive!

JACK SPIRA

I play Jacks' instruments almost exclusively - he's also the man who taught me how to make guitars and helped a lot with the Totally Gourdgeous Instruments. Great guitars, Mandolins and Bouzoukis, beautiful hand-made rosettes and purfling.
