Anthony Dodds of East street, Bridport has just launched a new website which specializes in English music for the classical guitar. Mr Dodds has been teaching guitar in West Dorset and East Devon for the last twenty years having gained his teacher’s diploma from the Royal Academy of Music in 1988. The publishing of music began in 1991 and the first books contained a variety of arrangements mostly suitable for the younger player. In 2004 he decided to concentrate purely on English music and this website and the books of music therein are the result. Visit Capriol.co.uk

John Stevens has always taken photographs from the time he studied at the Central School of Arts London (now central St Martins). At that time he worked entirely in black and white. After careers in design, horticulture and as an art dealer and gallery owner he now works as a photographer and painter. Specializing in macro photography of flowers he also takes pictures of landscapes, the sea, female figures and faces, more recently experimenting with abstract form and colour. These pictures can be described as “art photos” as they have been enhanced on a computer which results in a painterly quality. After many years in Suffolk John now lives in Bridport, Dorset.
