The concert was a great success attended by nearly 200 people helping to raise much need funds for the upkeep of the Church but providing those who attended a chance to watch, listen to and meet the best Guitarist in the world
Over the past forty years, Gordon Giltrap has graced the music business with his dedication to his craft of playing the guitar and his affection for his audience.
As one of the UK's most respected guitarists, he has consistently proved the adage that respect cannot be bought. It must be earned.
Gordon served his apprenticeship as a singer/songwriter on the London folk club circuit, and his self-titled debut album was released in 1968. He developed an extraordinary repertoire while establishing a reputation for thrilling live performances.
In the late Seventies, Gordon enjoyed a brief spell as a pop star, with a hit album "Perilous Journey" and two hit singles "Heartsong" and "Fear of the Dark". "Heartsong" is fondly remembered as the theme tune to the BBC's Holiday programme.
Over the years, Gordon has worked with an amazingly broad range of artists, from rock musicians such as Brian May, Rick Wakeman and Midge Ure to the jazz virtuoso Martin Taylor, the classical guitarist Raymond Burley and the London Symphony Orchestra.
Gordon will be playing a selection of his compositions during the evening and will even play requests for those more familiar with his work. There will also be a chance to meet with him during the interval and after he has finished playing.
He is an amazing guitar player who has a vast range of styles and can be enjoyed by everyone. He is also very approachable and loves to meet his audience. It promises to be another memorable evening of music in the special setting that is All Hallows Church.
