Solo flamenco guitar music lends a wonderful and exotic atmosphere to any event and Samuel Moore does not disappoint with his mastery of the tradition. Hailed as “a fantastic flamenco guitarist” (BBC Radio 3) and honoured as a First Category prizewinner in the 2023 Manhattan International Music Competition, Samuel Moore is fast establishing himself as one of the leading flamenco musicians of his generation. Since 2007 he has performed in venues across the UK, Europe, and North America. Solo performance highlights include prestigious concert halls such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and intimate venues such as Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London. Samuel Moore is a nationally respected flamenco guitarist with a vast performance repertoire and professional experience. He was taught to play by the world-renowned flamenco guitarists Juan Martín and Grisha Goryachev. Alongside Samuel’s busy international tour schedule, he is also available to perform at private events: weddings, parties, corporate engagements and proms. For all such bookings, Samuel presents wonderfully crafted, diverse and virtuosic solo guitar sets steeped in the richest and purest forms in the flamenco tradition. From fiery and dazzling palos such as the bulerías, to foot taping Latin American rhythms such as rumba, and even subtle and moving flamenco laments such as seguiriya, Samuel brings a ray of Mediterranean sunshine to enhance any occasion. Don’t miss out, book him to perform at your event today!

From start to finish Samuel was fantastic! He made our Wedding day so memorable. He is really talented and so many of our guests were impressed by him. Samuel worked with us to create the most perfect aisle music and played throughout our reception and meal beautifully and his music created the perfect atmosphere for our Spanish inspired wedding. Samuel looked so dapper too and is such a nice person that many of the guests enjoyed speaking with him inbetween sets. I really do highly recommend him and we hope to be able to see him play again one day. Do not hesitate to book him for your event! Samuel we absolutely think you are wonderful thank you so much-you made our day so great 😀🙏🏻🙏🏻
