This accomplished Classical Guitarist is based in the South and South West of England. He has worked professionally for more than 16 years, performing regularly in concert both nationally and abroad.
Following his natural vocation for music (learning guitar from age 11) his already successful career became international with extensive tours of the Far East, where he played to audiences in Japan and Korea. As well as giving solo recitals throughout the UK he also performs regularly with his guitar duo and his flute and guitar duo.
He has earned a reputation for his highly polished and authentic style of playing. He has featured on live radio and his recordings have been used in film and TV.
He has a repertoire flexibly tailored to entertain at any occasion: whether wedding, corporate function, party, restaurant or wake.
He is also happy to perform in costume for medieval banquets and historical re-enactment events, creating an authentic Elizabethan ambience with his wide repertoire of Renaissance music.
Whether a non-intrusive backdrop to informal conversation, or particular music for the wedding ceremony - his unique and stylish sets are much in demand, as they are guaranteed to enhance the atmosphere and have proved memorable to his audiences:
He can offer a versatile programme of music that spans Renaissance and Baroque through to Classical, Spanish, Latin, Celtic and contemporary - featuring composers such as Bach, Tarrega, Sor, Dowland and Giuliani among others.
He is available for hire for all occasions. Please contact him to talk about your requirements. He will adapt his skills to your needs and can play either solo or in a duo, accompanied by a harpist, flautist or another guitarist.
This guitarist also has the option of a battery amplifier which is very useful for outdoor bookings.
