Craig Newhouse

Craig Newhouse - Music

Craig is a professional guitar vocalist. He has his own recognisable playing tone and style as a result of playing classical guitar from age 11 for five years. At 16 he went "electric" and served his time in northern working men's clubs. He first played solo in 1985 in Portugal and again in 1991. Tours of Denmark, Austria, Cyprus followed and in 1997 Craig was asked to join 60s chart toppers Wayne Fontana and The Mindbenders who had hits with Game of Love, Groovy Kind of Love and Pamela Pamela. 

Craig's solo show consists of classic 60s hits as you might expect, but his proficiency on guitar is displayed in his Guitar Greats section of the show featuring the distinctive sounds of Eric Clapton, Hank Marvin, Pink Floyd, The Ventures, Jeff Beck and of course Mark Knopfler from Dire Straits.

Singer and guitarist

Craig was asked to play on the Solid Silver 60s Show, a 78 date UK theatre tour playing guitar vocals for Peter Noone (lead vocalist with Hermans Hermits) who notched up 24 top 20 hits including No Milk Today, I'm Into Something Good, Silhouettes, A Kind of Hush etc. On the same tour Craig also backed Dave Berry who had hits with The Crying Game and Memphis Tennessee. The guitar solo on Crying Game is still a personal favourite. The tour ended with a performance at the London Palladium, fulfilling a long held ambition. The Cunard liner Queen Elizabeth II followed with Wayne Fontana and The Mindbenders on and off the ship for 2 years and a concert for the National Trust at Clumber Park to an estimated 15000. Later Craig helped Hermans Hermits out in the UK and did a number of solo dates for Thomson Gold Hotels in Ibiza... Email: craig.newhouse@btopenworld.com
