Back in April, we popped in to see Steve Pilgrim & Danny Thompson, as they rehearsed at Black Barn Studios, ahead of their ‘Magic Strings’ tour.

We filmed them performing the song “Magic Strings” for Around the world in 80 plays, a project remembering guitarist Bert Jansch.

From Gary Crowley:

Morning everyone…
I’m a big fan of the documentaries that Mono Media Films have made (Sir Peter Blake, John Simons, Tubby Hayes, Paul Weller) and to have Lee Cogswell and Mark Baxter tell my story on film means a lot.
To coincide with the release of my #gclost80s compilation on Friday it is now ready to view.
And many thanks to those cool folk at Demon Records and Modfather Clothing for also making it happen.
We’ve called the mini doc “The Life, Music & Hairstyles of Gary Crowley”…and I think once you’ve seen it you’ll know why!
