Readers of Mike's autobiography will be well aware of the "big army bloke" Martin Griffiths. Martin was the proprietor of the Penrhos hotel and a good friend of Mike's especially around the time that he was recording Hergest Ridge and Ommadawn.
Martin is now 83 and still in top condition body and mind. He has had a fascinating career not just at Penrhos but also as a military and civilian pilot and running businesses all over the world.
"An Evening With" will take place in Coventry on Saturday February 17th and Martin will chat to us about his life and career - including his time at Penrhos and some memories of Mike of course, but more than that, this will give people a chance to get to know Martin himself and listen to some of his amazing and fascinating stories.
This is a fundraiser for one of Martin's current projects (restoration of an 1878 Bechstein grand piano in one of Coventry's oldest churches and celebratory concert). Ticket prices not known yet but will probably be priced low or even free and donations requested.
Please PM andyjone or email email@example.com for details and to reserve a place. If demand is high a small deposit may be requested to avoid no-shows.
