Call to anyone inspired by Vin for new project
Updated: Jan 26
A new project funded by Tees Valley Combined Authority and led by Teessider Mike Mcgrother is being developed as part of the eventual reopening of Saltburn Community Theatre. The project will centre around the life and music of Vin and Mike would love to hear from anyone, performer or otherwise, who was influenced by Vin and would like to get involved or contribute. Mike has posted on Facebook: "The late, great Vin Garbutt inspired me both as a musician and as a man. The Teesside Troubadour gave every person he met the time of day and his ability to make people laugh and cry during his shows us unsurpassed by anyone else I have seen perform.
Thanks to the support of TVCA and to be a part of the build up to an eventual reopening of Saltburn Community Theatre, I am working with Vin's family and friends to create a new 'Gathering' in his name this spring. Loads to announce soon but for now, if you are a musician or songwriter who was inspired by Vin please drop me a line at Mike.firstname.lastname@example.org as I am hoping to involve a rich variety of interpreters of his work in the event."
