WHEN the music press describes you as “probably the best and most original young acoustic guitar player and composer in Britain’, then you know that something pretty special is going on.

Welcome to the world of UK acoustic guitar phenomenon Clive Carroll. The “peerless” performer as already made a name for himself in famous circles having performed at private parties for the likes of TV chef Jean-Christophe Novelli and Madonna.

With his astonishing mastery of techniques and antecedents from Benjamin Britten to Nick Drake and from Renbourn through Giltrap to Pat Metheny, join this stunningly virtuosic guitarist on a joyful fairground ride of instrumental styles spanning the fields of traditional, classical and jazz with inspirations running from newgrass and fusion jazz to Irish stylings.

Carroll will be at High Barn on Friday, November 16. Tickets cost £12.50 and are available from high-barn.com or 01371 811291.
