Mick has been a working musician playing lead guitar since the 60s, playing 50s and 60s music before moving into country music. The country music scene took his interest to the steel guitar, and for many years he played pedal steel. Over recent years his love of the steel guitar led him to the lap steel guitar, often referred to as the ‘non pedal steel guitar’, and with no pedals came the need to learn how to create the same bends using bar slants. Mick performs at many steel festivals in the UK and has become a very well-known steel player, not only in the UK but in the USA also.
