The Ultimate Tribute To One Of Rock and Roll's Most Remarkable Groups

ON 11 November 2015, at the Southport Theatre, the original Fleetwood Mac guitarist, Rick Vito, will join Rumours of Fleetwood Mac, the world's leading Fleetwood Mac tribute show, live on stage at selected shows across the UK this autumn 2015.

Rick, who 1st performed with Fleetwood Mac in 1987, and appeared on the legendary 'Tango in the Night' album, will drop in to the RFM musical line- up starting Grimsby on the 29 October 2015, and then perform at 15 shows right through to:- New Brighton on the 22 November 2015, stopping by Scarborough, Chatham, St Albans, Skegness, Burnley, Cheltenham, Southport, Margate, Hayes, Eastbourne, Guildford and Ipswich.

"It's going to be tremendous fun. I met the guys last year and we hit it off straight away. They are all great musicians and they really manage to capture the live spirit of Fleetwood Mac. Something which is very important to me. I can't wait. If it goes well, I'll aim to be back for more shows in 2016."
said Rick…

Allan Cosgrove, RFM drummer, says:- "Wow! Rick Vito performing live on stage with us. It can't get any better."

Rick Vito is a Grammy nominated guitarist and performer who has been active in the music industry since the 1970's, having worked as a solo artist, songwriter, session musician, and as a member of the bands of John Mayall, Bonnie Raitt, Bob Seger, Jackson Browne, Roger McGuinn and many other R&R Hall of Fame artists. He is probably best known as an official member of Fleetwood Mac from 1987 to 1991, and more recently as the front man for the Mick Fleetwood Blues Band. Rick is also the recipient of the W.C. Handy Award and has 8 solo CDs, and 2 solo DVDs in his long list of credits.

Having performed to over a million fans since they formed over a decade ago, Rumours of Fleetwood Mac returns to the UK in late 2015 and early 2016 to launch its stunning new stage production performing in meticulous, note for note, detail all the classic hits from 1 of the most outstanding and enduring catalogues in the history of rock music.

Adventurers needed in the North West to explore local paths

THE Ramblers is calling on young people in the North West to head off the beaten track to explore footpaths in their area, in the very 1st project to gather a complete picture of the state of footpaths throughout England and Wales.

The Big Pathwatch is the Ramblers' biggest and most ambitious project ever to survey every right of way in England and Wales in order to build a national picture of the state of the paths; the 1st time this has ever been done!

It is the perfect chance for adventurous young people to discover new places and paths, and this opportunity can now be done by those aged 14 to 24, for 3 months to count for the Volunteering section of the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's Award (DofE).

Ramblers' chief executive Benedict Southworth said:- "Over the years the DofE has become immensely important in recognising those who learn key life skills and give back to their community. We're thrilled that the Big Pathwatch is now part of such a great programme. The North West is spoiled with beautiful countryside that is both historic and important to local people, but this could easily be lost to us if we don't preserve and protect these areas. To do that, we need everyone's help to walk our rights of way and tell us what they find. If you're keen to get involved, why not download the free app and head out to explore with your friends and let us know what you find. Not only will you be able to discover secret places in the North West, but more importantly, you will be offering a valuable service to your community by helping to protect and improve our paths for years to come."

The Big Pathwatch is the Ramblers' ground breaking project to gather the full picture of the state of the path network in England and Wales in order to come up with creative solutions to keep them open and well maintained.

People can get involved by downloading the free smartphone app, walking their favourite paths and reporting back on what they find; whether that's a wonky bridge or locked gate, a beautiful view or interesting wildlife.

Those who do not have a smartphone can still take part via the Ramblers website. For more information about the Big Pathwatch, visit:- Ramblers.Org.UK/BigPathWatch. To sign up for the Big Pathwatch as part of DofE, visit:- Ramblers.Org.UK/BigPathWatchDofE.
