Biography

This Classical Guitarist began playing the guitar when he was twelve, although his first instrument was the viola. He trained as an actor, studying drama at Bristol University. He was an actor/musician in various professional theatre companies and toured in Canada, Poland, France and the UK before deciding to leave the theatre and devote himself to the classical guitar.

He studied guitar with Adrian Neville in Southampton and then with international classical guitarist, Carlos Bonell, in London (with whom he performed a highly successful show based on the life and writing of the Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca).

He has performed solo classical guitar concerts regularly at the Edinburgh Festival since 1992. In 1994, he accompanied the legendary Eartha Kitt in her one-woman show: Yes. He is a member of chamber music group, The Ruskin Ensemble. Tours with them include appearances at the Brighton Festival, the Tunbridge Wells Festival, the Edinburgh Festival, Rural Touring Schemes in Nottinghamshire, Sussex, Devon, Scotland and Wales and Music Societies throughout the British Isles.

Outreach work is an important part of his experience as a musician and he works for the charity Music in Hospitals as well as, with the Ruskin Ensemble, working on the outreach projects of the City of London Sinfonia and he has taken part in schools workshops throughout the UK.

In the summer of 2007 he performed with the Orchestra of St John’s, Smith Square in the Grange Park Opera production of Verdi’s Falstaff.
