Guitar great George

HE’s been name-checked by the likes of Stereophonics’ Tony Kirkham, Jimi Goodwin of the Doves and Frank Black of the Pixies - and you can find out for yourself if Guitar George Borowski can play all the chords next Friday, April 20 (8pm).

George Borowski and his band The Fabulous Wonderfuls have spent the spring backing local cricket clubs with a string of gigs and they close out their First Test Tour with a date at Walsden Cricket Club, Scott Street, Walsden, having bowled over fans from Staffordshire up to Lancashire.

Borowski hasn’t received those accolades for nothing - he has toured all round the world and shared a stage with Meat Loaf in his time, and has a large underground following in Manchester and beyond, all impressed by his ability to strike just the right note.

Tickets, at £5 each, are available at the club (telephone 01706 813179) - and word is “snap them up quickly”.
