A little about Clive:
English guitar virtuoso and composer Clive Carroll has a vast musical palette and a sweeping creative vision. Adept at banjo, flattop, and nylon-string guitar, and equally at home playing fingerstyle or wielding a flatpick, Carroll creates music that defies categorization. In the same concert, he’ll perform lute tunes from the 1500s and generate soundscapes with his Ralph Bown OM and Boss RC-20 Loop Station.
Carroll got his first break as a solo guitarist when John Renbourn, the legendary British fingerpicker and cofounder of Pentangle, took him on tour for two years and introduced him to fans of acoustic and traditional music across Europe and the US. Soon after, Tommy Emmanuel brought Carroll Down Under for a joint tour. (YouTube videos of Emmanuel and Carroll playing onstage together are must-see items.)
Carroll’s latest album, Life in Colour points the way for a new generation of acoustic guitarists—sonic nomads who follow their muse wherever it leads, regardless of genre or era. It’s not easy to artfully mix altered tunings, renaissance and classical harmony, Delta blues, odd-meter riffage, body percussion, and even jazz manouche, but Carroll makes it sound natural and effortless.
Gordon and Clive have previously played together as part of 4 Parts Guitar but tonight is a special event - a duo concert, and there will be a surprise special guest too!!
