About Edina

Classical, Spanish and flamenco guitar for your event by an award-winning guitarist.
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Verified profile

I am a UK-based award-winning guitarist and I have been playing for more than 22 years. I have a mixed style of Spanish guitar, flamenco and classical. I have been performing many years publicly and privately as well. I am the resident guitarist of the Ritz London and I have played solo sets for Shard, Kew Gardens, Hilton among others. I am happy to tailor my set list depending on what atmosphere you would like for your wedding/party. I can play more classical/movie soundtracks, or even more Mexican/flamenco oriented. I also use for some songs a loop pedal to enhance the sound and add a guitar duo experience. I host a popular YT channel, The Spanish Guitar Hub, which has received millions of views and attracted more than 70k subscribers, I also wrote 6 guitar courses, and I am one of the signature artists of MusicNotes (the largest music sheet page online).

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Please let me know as soon as possible and I will do my best to adjust to your event do it will run as smooth as possible.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I can play music before and in between the sets from my iPod, no problem. This service is without any extra charge.

How much time do you need to set up?

My set-up is very easy. If you need me to go with a PA it takes 15 minutes. With amplifier it is 5 minutes.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Please feel free to do that!

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes I am completely self-sufficient, so hassle for you!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Depends on the song, and how far away your event. Since I play instrumental music it can take time to arrange and learn a song. But in any case I will have a look at your song and let you know if that’s possible.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

My guitar playing can be very relaxing in the background and put people into a better mood.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

I do about 100-150 performances a year as a solo and with my bands so I played in many venues. Last year as a solo I performed in the Shard, Birmingham Town hall, and Cambridge University.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Yann Tiersen, Paco De Lucia, Vicente Amigo, Mexican music and Spanish music.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Last year I played for the Shard.

Edina was great! We loved her repertoire as did our guests of all ages. She was quick thinking, moving her position when the rain started pouring! Her communication was excellent. I highly highly recommend.

Working with Edina Balczo was absolute pleasure. Her talent, attitude and performance were all great and apparent in our global award ceremony. We do recommend inviting Edina to any show / event you might have.
