It seems a lot of people are interested in guitar music and perhaps learning to play guitar so I made a return visit to The Lodge, Catalkoy to meet Jamie Vincent aka Jamie the Man in Black again, where he was teaching a group of enthusiastic students how to play guitar and to find how his classes were progressing since we last met.
I have met Jamie a number of times since he moved from Turkey to North Cyprus with his wife Teresa three years ago and during that period he became a highly rated guitarist and entertainer in the local hotels and restaurants.
They had been thinking of moving back to Turkey due to uncertainties over work permits but as he has one to perform in multi venues, it was decided they would stay and in the short-term he would concentrate on teaching others to play guitar at 3 clubs he is currently running.
Local fans should not worry as he is continuing to play at a number of his favourite venues and as he said “I can always increase my gigs during the 2016 season if I wish”.
