Maartin Allcock
A former member of Fairport Convention and Jethro Tull, British multi-instrumentalist Allcock is a driving force in the British folk/rock scene. He writes: "I have an Ibanez F style, which was a present from Dave Pegg; two Gibson A2s—one 1919, the other 1921—which I bought in the States; a Stefan Sobell bouzouki-guitar; a Rob Armstrong solid electric bouzouki with a piezo which has a separate output [this is the instrument Maart is playing in the above photo]; a solid doubleneck instrument, guitar and bouzouki by Rob; and a goldtop Les Paul solid electric bouzouki by Andy Viccars. ... There's a new band starting up—Dave Swarbrick (fiddle & mandolin), Beryl Marriott (piano), Kevin Dempsey (guitar) and me (bass, bouzouki and guitar)." Learn more about Maart at his Web site.
