    I'm currently playing in the Stratford Shakespeare Festival production of Twelfth Night. My role is one of the court musicians, and during the performance I play electric guitar (Godin Detour), 12 string electric (Ricky), electric bass (a Squier Active V Jazz), alto flute, alto sax and baritone sax. The pre-recorded incidental music has me on all of those instruments plus classical guitar, flute, clarinet, contrabass clarinet and tenor sax.

    I'm on the left in both shots (and yes, that's Brian Dennehy in the foreground!)

    That looks a lot of fun - how is it going? And how about suggesting tele led productions? A retiring Nashville record label boss unjustly distributes the business to his two grasping sons while ignoring his daughter who just loves the music and happens to be an ace tele player? With ghastly consequences to the business and the local music scene? Twang Gear?

    There is some tele content in the show:

    That's one of the set pieces - an icon that's on stage at the opening of the show.

    And here's the TV ad spot:



    You can see me a couple of times - playing my black Squier Jazz 5 and playing baritone sax.
