Folk Lift Truck's guitarist wants to switch to mandolin. If anyone Knows a guitar player near Bath UK then us know. They should be thick skinned, not easily offended, like a range of musical styles (metal, rap, soul, folk bluegrass) or be willing to play and cover a range of non traditional tunes in a bluegrass or oldtime style. Doesnt have to be an excellent guitarist but must be willing to practice on their own and once weekly as a band. The band are aged between 25 and 35, tease each other mercilesly and do our best to have fun.Add Comment

I started playing banjo in 2006 after taking a mandolin to be refurbished at "the banjo works" in Kent. After watching me attempt to play the mandolin with the air of a driving instructor watching a student get into the back seat and asking "where's the steering wheel" Andy (the banjo works owner) passed me a banjo with a hearty "try this instead". From that moment on I was hooked. Ive slowly worked my way though Jack Hatfield's Banjo primer and janet davies "You can teach yourself banjo", "Splitting the licks" and "back up banjo" before guesting in local band "dry clean only" and "Grass-snake" (not to be confuse with the non hyphenated "grass snakes") before founding "Going Down South". After struggling to get gigs with our double entendrous name we changed it to "Folk Lift Truck" and play a rockgrass/folk rock covers of anything we think will be fun. I can be found gigging around bath and Bristol with the band or climbing mountains with them (literally, we just like standing on top of them and shooting the breeze). Aside from music and mountains I work as a physiotherapist (physical therapist) and love endurance sports and adventures.
