A guitarist from Wolverhampton is gearing up for his latest big gig at Bilston's Robin 2.

Wolverhampton guitarist Pete Kent

Pete Kent, who grew up in Goldthorne Park, released his third album Free Energy earlier this yea via the Goldthorne Hill-based Revolver Records.

The 45-year-old guitar teacher at the city centre's One Way Music and Wombourne School of Music also launched Free Energy with a Robin 2 show back in February.

Kent is a fingerstyle acoustic guitarist of some repute. He gives some of modern rock's classics a unique spin with his eloquently plucked style. On Free Energy for example, Royal Blood's Little Monster, Jamiroquai's Virtual Insanity and the exceptional High And Dry from Radiohead's masterful The Bends album get a rework and sounded freshly enticing in this format.

He also benefitted from some live footage from a previous Robin 2 show going viral on social media. The footage, of him tackling some of Ibiza's biggest dance classics, was shared by Music Life on Facebook last month and received more than 6,000 'likes' while being shared by nearly 3,000 people for their friends to see.
