Jon Gomm was one of the many musicians who played in Audlem last year at the Lord Combermere.
His life, however, has suddenly changed. Stephen Fry saw him play on YouTube and tweeted the single word 'Wow'.
That tweet helped him find fame and now Jon is being inundated with offers to play around the world. He's been interviewed about his sudden success on BBC Breakfast TV, talking about the song and tweet that changed everything for him.
You can check Jon out playing Passionflower by clicking on the Youtube link under the photo — it's already been viewed by well over a million people.
Let's hope he's back in Audlem soon.
Our thanks to Reub Palin for letting us know about this story.
