If you’ve been to a Hicks and Goulbourn gigs you will have been struck by their easy manner on stage, an amazing array of genres, Lynn’s pure vocals and of course Steve’s breathtaking guitar playing, but how did they arrive at this point?
Steve and Lynn are only a couple of months apart age-wise, but their musical interests couldn’t be further apart … it’s a wonder they actually found common ground …Steve is drawn to instrumental music and, as he calls, it ‘strangely beautiful, weird and difficult stuff’. In contrast, Lynn was drawn at an early age to the smooth harmonies of Motown, Stevie Wonder and Diana Ross. Later influences included Steeleye Span, June Tabor, Annie Lennox and Indigo Girls.
The music that Steve and Lynn make as the duo ‘Hicks and Goulbourn’ is characterised by pure acoustic tones, reflective lyrics, well crafted arrangements and intricate, complex guitar work. Whilst the genres in their typical sets are wide ranging there is no compromise in quality and their live performances are interspersed with engaging anecdotes and humour.
