It is a difficult time at the moment. Robin was due to fly to New York next week to join the QM2. He was perfoming two concerts on board ship during the journey fron New York to Southampton.
The current situation with terror threats is making the whole thing very difficult.
Not only do we have to weigh up the safety issues on a transatlantic flight, but the current restrictions mean his guitar would have to go in the hold.
In all his years travelling the globe the guitar has always gone on board with him and fits easily into the overhead lockers.
The guitar is a very expensive instument but the main problem is that if it were damaged in any way he would be unable to just replace it. A guitar of this quality is just so rare.
We are holding are breaths at the moment to see how things develop but will have to make a decision in the next few days.
'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman
