This year’s event is in memory of GOTB founder ‘Nomad’ with proceeds going to Cancer Research UK
Guitars On The Beach in Lyme Regis tomorrow (Saturday, Septemebr 3) is dedicated to the late Gordon ‘Nomad’ Smith, the much-loved local musician who helped establish the popular festival.
GOTB founder Geoff Baker says the event, which will attempt to break its own UK record as Britain’s biggest band, will be held in memory of the guitarist, songwriter and film-maker who inspired and helped so many young Lyme musicians.
Nomad died on New Year’s Eve 2013 after a brave battle with cancer.
“Without him, there would be no Guitars On The Beach,” said Mr Baker. “This year we will be fund-raising for Cancer Research UK.
The ‘Rave On’ record attempt is at 5pm, with a warm-up sat 4.30pm.
