Biography

After more than 20 years dedicated study and performance on the guitar, this Cornwall classical guitarist is an accomplished solo musician who has the ability to play in many styles and for any occasion. As a stylish and non-intrusive accompaniment to a dinner event, or providing the perfect musical backdrop for a wedding ceremony, he will tailor his performance to meet your needs and to make your event truly memorable. 

Will learn any song or piece of music (often for specific points during a wedding)

He uses a high quality 60 watt classical guitar amp, reproducing an authentic sound, which can be clearly heard by up to 400 guests but without being intrusive, and also has a battery powered amplifier when required.

Much in demand and an experienced performer, he has built a reputation as an accomplished and professional player at weddings and corporate events throughout the south west. As well as many satisfied wedding clients, other recent clients include the Cornish conservative club, The Royal Liverpool regiment and the prestigious Budock Vean Hotel in Falmouth where he is resident guitarist.

He will work with clients to provide a lively set, a more romantic classical based set, a large selection of popular classics, or a mixture of all of these. He is very flexible, will perform requests, and will learn any particular piece of music - often for the Bride’s arrival or during the signing of the register at wedding ceremonies.

He started playing guitar at aged 14, going on to perform his own material in an acoustic duo where he gained valuable experience playing and singing around the London folk clubs. He became fascinated with the classical and flamenco style and, inspired by the maestro Segovia, devoted many years to studying the technique. After taking encouragement and advice from the renowned Spanish guitar centre in London, he became resident guitarist at Piaf restaurant in Wimbledon village. A move to Cornwall followed, where he began successfully performing at weddings and corporate events. Drawing on his vast experience, he also gives private tuition on the guitar.
