Joanne Melbourne

Joanne is a Gitbox Fan from way back! Having played guitar since she was 10-years old, when she first saw Gitbox in the ‘80’s, she thought that she'd never be good enough to play 'like that'.

As a student of Nigel Gavin's, she found out that he 'was' Gitbox and not only did she feel excited but completely overwhelmed when he asked her to join the new Gitbox line up.

Musically, Joanne learned classical, spanish and has spent 5 years with Nigel.  She has started writing guitar music one piece being “John’s Shoes”, that Gitbox will be playing.
