Gordon Giltrap guitarist at the Hinckley ACTAbout Gordon Giltrap

One of the most innovative acoustic guitarists in the UK today, Gordon Giltrap has developed his own unique style, much copied, but never bettered. It is impossible not to be awestruck as he coaxes incredible melodies from his instruments; you almost suspect a second pair of hands.

With over 40 years in the business, Gordon will satisfy fans with his most well loved hits, as well as explaining the history of his many different guitars. Be prepared for beautiful compositions that cross all musical genres, wit, charm and unbelievable talent.

Well known for his collaborations with other artists and his work for both the BBC and commercial television. “Heartsong” is instantly recognized as the theme for the holiday programme. Gordon continues to delight his audiences and no two concerts are ever the same.

“Gordon Giltrap is one of an elite few who truly have become legendary in their field in their own lifetime. I am proud to call him my friend.”
Brian May (Queen).
