Legendary acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap wowed Acapela last night with an amazing set of guitar pieces old and new.
He did not disappoint the audience with some amazing renditions of his classic tracks combined with a dry sense of humour that ensured that it felt like a very personal performance for all in attendance. Closing the first set with his biggest hit “Heartsong” it was a very special moment to be there to hear him play everyones favourite Holiday programme theme tune! It sounded superb , full of energy and was yet another Acapela special moment!
Tales of his career and the musicians he had played with – Rick Wakeman, Eric Clapton etc – made for a very interesting evening.
The following quote taken from Facebook from Gareth Spencer says it all – “Great night tonight watching Gordon Giltrap at the Acapela Studio, to quote a friend at the gig “It is amazing to be in the presence of brilliance and to be sat so close watching him play”. . . The guy is a legend.”
And another Facebook quote from Jonathan Winter ” T’was indeed a crackin’ night and that guy sure can play the guitar!!!!! lovely support act too…….and to top it off the pizza was tops!”
Thanks to all who attended and the excellent feedback.
