Then, in February two duo gigs with Gareth Davies-Jones , the start of a new venture which I’m really looking forward to.  Gareth sang harmony vocals on my album when Ian Stephenson recommended him to me.  He is a singer, guitarist and songwriter of the finest calibre, and I could listen to his voice all day.  Our project is called Jones & Jones: The Story & The Song.  We will be playing half Gareth’s songs, half mine, and backing each other’s material too.
