John Etheridge with special guest Kit Holmes

Enjoy an uplifting evening of:

blues, folk, jazz, African grooves

and much more from two outstanding guitarists.

John Etheridge is one of the world’s most respected guitarists and his music spans a myriad of styles and influences. He was the guitarist for the celebrated jazz violinist Stephane Grappelli and he has also performed with: Soft Machine, Pat Metheny, Andy Summers, Dizzy Gillespie, Nigel Kennedy and is currently in a duo with the eminent classical guitarist John Williams. This is a rare opportunity to see John performing a solo concert, which features tracks from his highly acclaimed album I didn’t know.

Kit Holmes’ trademark sultry vocals and virtuoso guitar playing have wowed audiences across the UK through extensive touring. Her blues-driven roots with a soul sensibility have guaranteed her three headline shows at the International Guitar Festival.

“I never wanted to be a star, just a highly respected musician like John Etheridge.”
Sting – The Guardian
