MAVERICK RED SOFA SESIONS 2014 - 2017

 

History

In 2014 I had an idea which I put to the Founder and Director of the Maverick Festival of Americana Roots Music, Paul Spencer. Cutting a long story short i found an old red sofa in a barn and the rest is history as they say. Nearly 200 individual singer / song writers and bands have sat on the Red Sofa. Many of the photographs have been used by the musicians for publicity and some have made their way onto album covers. In 2018 I did the sessions on an iPhone when we couldn't get the red sofa out a barn full of hay bales. Examples of sessions between 2014 -2018 which shows the development of the concept.
