I am delighted to be playing 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



As a Church of England vicar, Martin Green is responsible for 2 Warwickshire churches. In 2008, tragedy struck when, on Palm Sunday, one of his churches (St Nicholas') was broken into and burnt down. Later that year, his other church (St Michael's) was declared an emergency restoration project, when large chunks of stone began falling out of the church tower, threatening closure.

St Michaels church in Bishops Itchington was built in its present form in 1872, but sadly, the stone used has gone way beyond its safe sell-by date. We are currently facing a £250,000 restoration project to prevent the church from closing.

English Heritage have stepped in and offered a substantial grant towards these costs. They have recognised that our church is an integral part of the community as well as being a historical landmark. It is used by the community for all kinds of things that span all ages, from mums and tots to pensioners' lunches, as well as weekly worship.

Do please support us by coming along – it promises to be a very special evening.

Tickets : £10 each available from Martin Green
(01926 613466 – please ring between 6.00 – 9.00pm) or leave a message on the answer machine.

You are best to secure a ticket in advance but there will be tickets on the night as there is plenty of space!

Refreshments will be available.

On September 8th I'm doing another Sharing Day, this time at the charming Castle Park Arts Centre Frodsham.This will be a return visit for me and one I'm looking forward to very much.

My chosen piece for the day Ania's Dream is taken from my Last of England album.The evening will see me perform an intimate concert in the upstairs gallery.The seating is limited so those who just want to attend the concert should book early.Those attending the workshop will have free admission to the evening concert.

My special guest for the afternoon was due to be outstanding guitarist/teacher/ composer Martin Pleass, however he is sadly unable to attend. In his place I'm now delighted to be inviting one of the finest 12 string guitarists around, Mr Paul Brett.

Many of you will know Paul's incredible range of guitars for JHS. I am a huge fan of the Paul Brett Viator guitar and his 12 string version of the same instrument,in fact I love all the instruments he has designed for the company and have used three models on stage and in the studio for many years now.

Come along and meet this legend of the instrument for yourself.



The evening concert will start at 19:30

Should attendees require accommodation the Arts Centre recommends The Old Hall Hotel on Main Street, Frodsham.

IMPORTANT: Bookings for Sharing Day can ONLY be made via Sue Holton email: ggiltrap+sharingday@gmail.com and not direct from the venue.


Castle Park Arts Centre is set amongst beautiful floral gardens, parkland and woodland walks in the historic market town of Frodsham.

The Victorian building with its unique clock tower was originally the stable block for the adjacent mansion house. In 1986 these outbuildings were converted into the arts centre providing exhibition and workshop spaces, a cafe and craft units.

The traditional origins of the building are reflected in the magnificent wrought iron gates which were commissioned for the entrance to the Arts Centre.

Visitors to Castle Park Arts Centre can experience a lively programme of exhibitions, arts activities and enjoy the wonderful Victorian buildings and grounds.

The Arts Centre has 4 galleries, 2 craft rooms, 7 courtyard craft units, a coffee shop and garden space with disabled access. There is a regular programme of changing exhibitions and arts and crafts classes for adults and children. The Centre is also used by numerous clubs and societies.

Castle Park Arts Centre is run as a charitable trust which is managed and manned by volunteers.

Composing For Solo Guitar

A Residential Weekend Hosted By Gordon Giltrap

and Will McNicol

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
