The Eclectic Guitar Of Tony Mitchell (Tony Mitchell)

By | Published on Saturday 23 August 2014

An entertaining evening, like the bit of a party where someone gets the guitar out and everyone settles down to hear familiar tunes and bitter sweet stories of former days. Local musician Mitchell has been playing for over 50 years and his relaxed style was very assured. It was eclectic, a variety of popular styles covering folk, pop, country and blues but always happy even when reminiscing about absent friends. A particular favourite was ‘I can see clearly now’ and the corny pun that Mitchell used in its introduction. I was disappointed he sang only once because ‘Don’t touch that’ was great fun to hear. Tonight was a good humoured performance from a musician who didn’t take himself too seriously.
