Johnny Marr To Join Bryan Ferry At GuilFest

Iconic guitarist Johnny Marr is to join Bryan Ferry onstage at this weekend’s GuilFest, it has been announced.

The former Smiths man will be along side Ferry for his entire headline appearance on Sunday, July 15th, with Ferry planning to perform a set comprising of solo material and some favourites from the Roxy Music back catalogue.

Ferry and Marr first met back in 1987 when Marr appeared on the Bete Noir album, and has also recently been in the studio with Ferry working on a new album. Ferry has said of the live hook-up;

"Johnny has previously performed with us on TV and at some smaller events but I am thrilled that he will be playing a full show with us for the very first time at GuilFest."

GuilFest will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, and will be treated to performances on the Main Stage from the likes of Jools Holland and Jimmy Cliff.
