Something for the Weekend... Guitar Show & Concert ~ 25th-26th May

Taking place at St. Mary's – A Creative Space, Chester, on Saturday 25th May, Vintage Guitars presents an evening concert with a quintet of the UK's finest acoustic guitarists.

Acoustic troubadour Gordon Giltrap MBE, famed for penning 'Heartsong', the original theme tune to the BBC's Holiday program, will be joined by three fellow Vintage endorsees and luminaries of the acoustic guitar fraternity.

Paul Brett, acoustic guitar historian and aficionado, is widely regarded as one of the finest 12 string guitarists in the world; Paul is also the designer of a series of best-selling Vintage acoustic guitars and he will perform using a selection of his signature instruments.

Carrie Martin, the First Lady of Vintage guitars, has recently had her unique brand of folk fingerpicking and ethereal vocals showcased on BBC Radio, and 2019 will see her touring her latest album 'Seductive Sky' throughout the UK, Europe and Canada.

Raymond Burley is one of Britain's most experienced and respected classical guitarists, boasting a rich and varied CV which includes film scores, concertos, radio and television. A veteran performer Ray has performed with artists as diverse as Rick Wakeman, Dame Peggy Ashcroft and Dudley Moore.

Rory Evans is a young acoustic maestro who has to be seen to be believed. Already described as 'a frightening mix of Jerry Reed and Tommy Emmanuel,' Rory's incendiary playing has generated wild critical acclaim. Combining lightening fast picking, impossible accuracy and a devilish sense of humour, Rory's acoustic guitar talents will amuse, enthral and enrapture.

In addition to the evening concert, Vintage guitars will host 'Something for the Weekend...' guitar show at St. Mary's – A Creative Space, during Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th May; admission to the exhibition will be FREE OF CHARGE, with each day open to the public between 10.00am-4.00pm.

Come along and sample the latest products from Vintage, Fret-King, Santos Martinez, Bohemian and Danelectro. Instruments will be available to buy from our retail partner Ivor Mairants Musicentre.

There will also be an opportunity for show-goers to meet the performing concert artists during the exhibition days across the weekend.
