A long time ago Geordie Skuffle aka Kevin Healy was playing his guitar in the pit of the enormously successful West End show "Cats" when soaring above the chorus he heard the astonishing voice of young Sean Kingsley. They knew they were destined to make records together but both continued to make a living whilst time rolled mercilessly by.
A few years later Kevin on holiday with his family in Barcelona was walking through the old town when he heard groovy drumming emanating from a shop doorway. Inside he discovered his Skuffle Box being played by the local drum-shop assistant.
More time passed and Kevin again sitting in a West End pit now accompanying the late Patrick Swayze in "Guys & Dolls" amused himself in the interval playing rock tunes on his acoustic guitar. When the incumbent Double Bass player joined in (for a laugh) something finally clicked in Kevin's brain.
Here are sixteen of rocks greatest iconic guitar based songs performed by Skuffle in their own unique style. We hope you are inspired to revisit the originals, buy or build your own Skuffle box and get rockin’ with your mates. Now is the time to Skuffle, Geordie Skuffle.
Peter picks up the story........."Expatsradio is rarely speechless as you may have noticed but in this case we were. Why? We had been sent a copy of Skuffle's first CD and we had decided to play it in the edit suite on the big speakers. From the very first note we were absolutely bowled over. If you are a rock fan, try this out as all the songs are played on acoustic instruments!! So who is behind this and what is the story? Here is the message we got from Kevin Healy who kindly recorded an interview with us."
