Garry Catchpole – Lead guitar
Garry first picked up a guitar at 10 years old and eventually had classical lessons in his early teens. Although he never progressed things to any level and played publicly, the guitar has always been kept close by his side, regularly used to drift into that place where only music can take you.
He has enjoyed all types of music over the years with particular focus on Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry, BB King, Howling Wolf, Black Sabbath, Guns and Roses, Hendrix, Dire Straits, U2, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, John Denver and Eric Clapton.
Garry has been fascinated by the guitar and blues music for years and started performing at open mics and similar about four years ago. Things have progressed more rapidly over the last few years with the help of the Chepstow Acoustic Club where he enjoyed playing and singing.
Garry has also written a number of his own personal songs and is enjoying developing his song writing, vocals and guitar skills in the future both independently and with Twysted River.
