A brief introduction to New Zealand Musician John Laurence (aging rock legend in my mind) for new visitors to his YouTube channel. John produces world acoustic instrumental music with a Celtic flavor. His music is influenced by his favorite genres, including blues, jazz, rock, folk and classical music. John is a multi-instrumentalist as well as a singer/songwriter and composer. He plays guitars, mandolin, bass guitar, dulcimer, Godin Merlin, ukulele, piano and keyboards, whistles and recorders, trumpet and other brass. His music sounds like: Loreena McKennitt, Amethystium, Era, Delerium, Enigma, Shadowfax, Deep Forest, Gregorian, Andreas Vollenweider.
