Tom Doughty became disabled after a road accident in 1974, and re-learnt the guitar in an entirely way to how he had played previously; he has been described as "the Django Reinhardt of Slide Guitar". He has performed in many venues, including Southport's Bothy folk club, and has 3 CDs under his belt. His music is blues-tinged but he doesn't limit himself to one style.
Tonight he will be performing in the gymnasium of the Spinal Injuries Unit, DistrictHospital,Town Lane, Southport at 7.30 p.m. Tickets £5.00 (all proceeds to Spinal Unit Action Group). Contact Julie Jones 01704 547471, or pay on the door.
