About Ian

I've recently returned from Cyprus where I've played and sung in Hotels, Tavernas, Amphitheatres and bars both solo and as frontman
Alderley Edge

I've been a professional musician and teacher for as long as I can remember. Like most guitarists, I started off in bands, for nearly all of which I was front man and vocalist. I've performed in American Air Force bases in Europe, amphitheatres, tavernas and wedding venues across Cyprus and countless UK venues. In Cyprus, most weddings are conducted in the open air and from necessity I have expanded my repertoire to include unaccompanied acoustic guitar pieces without amplification. Now back mostly in the UK, I have my own p.a system and quality backing tracks and have added harmonica and mandolin to my musical armoury (the bouzouki is still in my holiday home in Paphos) As a songwriter I now have more than 30 "originals" and regularly perform them in folk clubs.

From customers:

Maureen C, 2013 years ago

A great singer an first class guitarist -either electric with backing tracks, or acoustic. Ian has an amazing range of material for all stages of the wedding from the ceremony to the evening dance party.

Andrew L, 4034 years ago

Ian played unamplified acoustic guitar and sang "our song" to conclude our wedding ceremony at Rockcliffe Hall, Darlington. His singing was powerful and emotional.
