“An intimate setting and superb classical guitarist, filling the room with music that at times carried me away – a very pleasant opening to the festival. It was the Fringe actually but Friday night was opening night of the festival, I could tell because outside I could here the cars. Inside it was bliss. The whole ‘up close’ thing, a guitar that was alive with warmth and seemingly a part of the musician’s body, and music – it was a privilege to be a part of such a simple and yet exquisite experience. The opening night started with a plaintive George Gershwin Prelude and covered a range of styles from Spanish to Russian, to British contemporary and Classical works each masterfully performed. Some virtuoso dynamics in a Neil Smith Scottish medley, and some moments of toffee flavoured bittersweet brilliance, as a non-Spanish guitarist let loose with a convincing Issac Albeniz – Asturias, and Paco Pena – Herencia Latina were highlights for me. Those and an old favourite Satie ”

Q: Heard your beautiful music last year in King's Lynn, meant to buy cd where can I get one?
A: The gig was to raise funds for the church so I only did a few and they all sold . I'm glad you enjoyed the music though.
