Biography

This Yorkshire -based guitarist is one of the most versatile players around.. He has received international acclaim for his widely-broadcast albums and was described by Andy Kershaw on his BBC World Music programme as " a wonderful guitar player." He has performed live on several other radio and TV programmes and at a huge number of concert, club, wedding and other venues. An experienced teacher, he has published several books of guitar arrangements and has worked as arranger and musician with both professional and youth theatre companies.

His wide repertoire of guitar solos allows him to tailor a programme to any requirements. The more classical part of his range  includes Mediaeval, Renaissance, Baroque and Spanish pieces, and distinctive arrangements of old Celtic harp music. More modern styles include blues, bossa nova, ragtime, jazz standards, and original compositions in a number of styles.

He is especially experienced at programming varied background music to suit different parts of a wedding day – the bride’s arrival and departure and the service itself , the drinks reception (indoor or outdoor) and the wedding meal.
