We're delighted that we have the incredible Pete Marsh as our Artist-In-Residence for the 2017 event.
Pete says "My motivation is always live music performance. It is the atmosphere which interests me, so I only paint gigs I’ve attended. Wherever possible, I prefer to draw from life... but as it is usually too dark during gigs I try to access the sound-check.
