Two Friends in Concert - Gordon Giltrap and Nick Hooper

The Coopers Arms

Weston Hall, The Green
Weston on Trent, Derbyshire DE72 2BJ

phone: 07768 800300

website: http://www.thecoopers-arms.co.uk/

The Coopers Arms resides in Weston Hall, a large 17th Century Mansion House which is a Grade II* listed building. The curious appearance of this former mansion house is complemented by its enigmatic history.

I am delighted to be playing once again with my good friend and brilliant guitarist Nick Hooper.

NICK HOOPER

Although Nick Hooper is better known as a film-music composer, he started his musical career as a guitarist, studying at The Royal College of Music, and receiving tuition from John Williams and others.

In the late 70s he toured widely under the auspices of Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now, and also The British Council. In the 1980s Nick released a folk album Turning Tables with Chris Leslie, and a solo album of music by J S Bach which was critically acclaimed, comparing his playing to that of John Williams and Andres Segovia.

Decades later, after a successful film music career, scoring two Harry potter films and winning many awards, Nick has returned to his first love – the guitar. He joined forces with his wife Judith to form the duo Henderson:Hooper, started a folk series which has now become ‘Pop-up Folk’, and helped form the Dellywellyboot Band. A couple of years ago Nick recorded an album of mainly Irish music Six Strings, and it was this that caused him to meet Gordon Giltrap: Gordon generously helped him to get his new Fylde guitar – a copy of Gordon’s.

Of Six Strings: ‘It’s a complete joy. It’s going to be one of those albums that I play a lot, because it’s got that kind of calm spaciousness about it too, which is absolutely brilliant. Yeah, love it!’ Chris Leslie


Gordon and Nick will be on stage approx 8pm

Tickets available  from Dave Ford - 07768 800300  post free , collection from the Coopers or on the night if not sold out

Composing For Solo Guitar

A Residential Weekend Hosted By Gordon Giltrap

12 – 14 October 2018   -    Woodside, Warwickshire

During my life of writing, recording and performing music for solo guitar, players have often asked me about the creative process of ‘Composition’ for guitar. To help provide an insight into this fascinating and rewarding subject, I have developed a learning event which will be held over a weekend in Warwickshire this October. I will be joined by Will McNicol who is both a talented guitarist and a dear friend. Will and I will also be supported during the weekend by Paul Roberts a successful and experienced RGT registered Guitar Tutor.

GG 2018.

Places are limited to 20 participants and the weekend will be of interest to any guitarist who wishes to write or improve their own compositions and to develop their innate creativity.

Areas to be covered will include:

  • Why start composing and examples of how to approach it.
  • Practical compositional tools including structure methods, melodic sequence and linking sections.
  • A very personal insight from Gordon into how ‘Heartsong’ was created, and other shared examples from Gordon and Will.
  • How to create images, colour and melodic emotion.
  • Developing a set chord sequence as a group.
  • Working in small groups with coaching from Gordon and Will

The style of the weekend will be informal and relaxed with plenty of time for individual reflection and one to one coaching.

The fee for the 3-day residential workshop is £500 per student and includes: Accommodation for 2 nights and all meals All learning materials All tuition For further information and payment details to secure a place, please email pcrguitar@gmail.com or call 07860 648068

Derby Dance was established as a local dance development agency based at Derby Playhouse in 1991, before becoming one of the first wave of national lottery funded capital projects to aid its move to new premises in 1997. The new building was officially opened in January 1998. In 2008, the name of the organisation changed to Déda.

Déda is the only dedicated dance house in the East Midlands region, acting as a local, regional and national resource for dance artists and the wider arts community.

Déda houses a 124 capacity studio theatre, three dance studios, meeting room facilities and the CUBE café bar. It offers a weekly class programme and a year-round professional performance programme for children, young people and adults, and an extensive community development programme. By providing a ladder of creative opportunities for artists, audiences and participants, Déda aims to foster an understanding of and respect for dance and related art forms.

In 2014, Déda re-developed part of the Queens Street Leisure Centre, expanding its facilities to include Meeting Rooms and Conferencing facilities, along with a brand new state of the art studio and production space. The theatre has also been dramatically improved to enable us to present larger scale dance productions – both by our own Youth Performance Companies and by National visiting companies.

Classic Rock Society present: GORDON GILTRAP


Concerts are regularly organised by the CLASSIC ROCK SOCIETY, featuring some of the best Rock & Prog artists around.

Our stated core aim is, as it ever was, to foster the growth and development of ‘grass roots’ progressive and general ‘classic’ rock by bringing together like-minded individuals and giving bands who may struggle for gigs a platform to play. These smaller shows are to some extent subsidised by larger profile bands who also play for the Society. As well as our two regular venues near Rotherham (Montgomery Hall in Wath-Upon-Dearne and the Wesley Centre in Maltby), we also regularly use a venue in St Helens (the Citadel), Norwich (Brickmakers), and occasionally the Picturedome in Holmfirth. We are always looking for ways to expand and give the Society a more ‘national’ and less parochial flavour.

This will be a very special show as this will be a launch gig for Gordon’s upcoming biography Perilous Journey, written by Rock Society editor Steve Pilkington. Gordon will play a regular set and also another special section which will see him intersperse stories about his life with music from the period.

Artist: Gordon Giltrap
Date: 8th December 2018
Doors: 7pm
Venue: The Wesley Centre, Maltby, Rotherham, UK
Tickets: From: £17 (£15 for CRS Subscribers) are available from the CRS website (note, NOT the venue) at the following link: http://www.classicrocksociety.co.uk/shop/gordon-giltrap/
