James Wynne was last here in Barga during September of 2010 when he played a concert in Piazza Angelio in Barga Vecchia in front of a large crowd sitting down to eat a meal in the piazza courtesy of Riccardo Negri at the L’osteria (article here)
He was booked for a return session earlier on this summer but had to pull out at the last moment due to illness, a second concert was also cancelled, this time as it clashed with Opera Barga … finally this evening, James was back in the piazza and this time the stars were all lined up perfectly.
He has teamed up with the singer Silvio Traversa and formed the Anglo-Italian duo knows as Power-T.
