Peter McPartland

  • The Big I Am

"What wondrous things they are... The 12 string plays like a 6 string and the 6 strings has a beautiful tone and surprisingly loud. These two really lift our sound."

About Peter McPartland

Described by Tom Robinson as "sounding like Steve Riche and Peter Gabriel having an acoustic jam" The Big I Am were looking for new acoustic instruments and decided to go for the Vintage Paul Brett VE8000PB and VE8000PB-12 six and 12 string guitars respectively.

Liverpool based The Big I Am's last album got 5 star reviews in R2 and Maverick magazine, it even got a good write up in Blues magazine, despite the duo not actually playing blues!
