Gordon Giltrap comes to the Isle of Wight

Innovative guitar fanatics will be pleased to learn that Gordon Giltrap will be coming to the Isle of Wight, and he's bringing only two things - his music stand and his guitar. Also possibly some clothes.

Joking aside, Giltrap is renowned for being one of the most explorative acoustic musicians playing in the UK today. His style - often copied but never beaten - sees him charming audiences with a lively opposition of individual types of music.

Strumming gently on the strings, he plies all forms of emotion from our souls in a deep and masterful concert that has all the critics raving about him.

As well as compositions that traverse all genres - fanatics can count on the old favourites, definitely - you can expect wit, charm and passionate talent to dominate the evening.

While it's certainly the music that takes centre-stage, Giltrap isn't one to leave all the talking up to the songs, and he graciously educates us on types of guitar and their histories during this impressive show.

No two concerts are ever the same, of course - Giltrap has been in the business for more than 40 years and happily reworks his setlist for each occasion, having picked up an impressive collection of covers and original works during his time on the music scene.

Having worked with institutes as impressive as the BBC and commercial television stations, Giltrap is no stranger to the limelight, and he is known for melodies so intricate and beautiful you wonder where he's hiding the second pair of hands.

His concert on the Isle of Wight is happening at the Quay Arts Centre on May 2nd. Doors open at 7pm and the artist will be taking to the stage at 8pm. Tickets cost £10 in advance and £12 if you buy them on the door.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801705325-ADNFCR
