On The Last Episode of @Home With TREVOR FINLAY
– Special Guest BRIAN ASHLEY JONES
Introducing The FINLAY COLLECTIVE!
As I say in the video, I had this idea this past summer on my way to play some festivals up north. Most of the gigs that I’ve been doing lately have been acoustic, so why not put together an acoustic band? Not your typical acoustic band either, but an exciting, energetic dual guitar, dual percussion unit that would be ready for any size venue.
Gigs are being booked – help me spread the word and hopefully we’ll see you in your town soon!

I HAD THIS CRAZY IDEA
I was asked to play at Mont Tremblant’s Festival on July 6th as part of their “Acoustic Summit”, which is their annual event when they bring in all the artists that played the festival that day to pay tribute to an act of the festival organizers choosing. This year was CCR and I had this idea to play “I Put A Spell On You” on the ukulele… No idea why… it was just a soft voice in my ear that said “use the ukulele”.
The result is a version of the song that I’m ridiculously proud of and I plan on adding it into my setlist on a regular basis.
Gotta love it when taking a chance works out!
A SONG FOR BB KING
Rest in peace, Mr. King.
I have an autographed picture that I’ve cherished for years… He always stayed after the shows, talked to everyone that wanted to talk, he was gracious and took an interest in everyone. There are a lot of people that could and should learn from his examples.
The blues ain’t gone. The thrill ain’t gone. We just need to learn lessons from those who were here before us.
