Der Mittelpunkt / The Center

This time truly the “Center cannot hold”

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Musician wanted for duo.

This is an ad I have running as I need a player to work in my duo.

You can contact via the website link above or on this email.  with the word duo in the heading. 

Looking for a guitar player (vocals useful but not essential ), preferably acoustic to work as part of a duo for occasional gigs, say 2 to 3 a month (pubs or similar mostly with occasional weekday gigs ) with Violinist/ keyboard player/ guitarist multi-instrumentalist 20 years solid gigging experience. Also published songwriter and composer.
Music would be a mixture of originals and covers ranging across world music to folk and more.
An ability to improvise would be useful.
Some ability to work from lead sheets would be helpful but not essential.
