Wir bringen zusammen, was zusammen gehört – Jim Kroft mit einer Acoustic-Performance von seinem Song "Beautiful Ways" im Gibson Bus beim Selvedge Run 2015.Posted by Gibson on Thursday, July 16, 2015
I enjoyed yesterday an invitation to play a live session on the Gibson Tour bus in Berlin. I have been supported by Gibson since 2011. I have a wonderful memory playing a Lido for the release of The Hermit and the Hedonist when Ben tore up the stage using the famous Jimmy Page double headed guitar. It was one of those “shall we?!” moments backstage before bringing it out, but ultimately the naughty boys in us won! A little video from memory lane!
I’d like to thank Gibson for all their support. I really think that it is pretty special when such an esteemed company support not just artists with huge record deals, but stick with an artist through thick and thin because they like the music and the project. Chapeau!
They also sponsored me with a Guitar on the tour around East Africa. It was a pretty balsy move because they knew it wasn’t going to be big professional stages, but about playing everywhere from markets, rooftops, beaches, slums, buses, and yup, on the back of motorcycles! Here are a few photos of the guitar in action in East Africa. I am currently planning it and my next Journey – part #3. We are bonded together now!
