Anna Strong - Classical Guitarist

This classical guitarist plays stunningly beautiful music for all types of event, as appreciated by Gok Wan, Champneys, and several A-list clients for weddings, birthdays and any celebration or event imaginable.  Based in the south east of England, this guitarist plays regularly in London and the home counties, as well as further a field, including the United States, Canada and Asia.

A large and varied repertoire is available from classical and romantic, to popular, jazz, Latin, Spanish and traditional.  Any special favourite tune can always be accommodated for your ceremony.  

With a wealth of experience and willing to travel any time and to any place for clients, this guitarist has performed in literally 100s of concert halls, churches, country houses, corporate functions, private homes and gardens.  Some of the more unusual locations include the thirteenth century castle ruins at Hadleigh, and the active volcanic slopes of Mauna Loa, Hawaii, and (arguably) Europe's top location, the viewing platform of the London Shard! 

For a warm intimate atmosphere, and for larger events, subtle amplification is applied.  

"......that was absolutely beautiful.” BBC Essex

"The respect accorded to the guitarist throughout this demanding recital was a true reflection of the performer's ability. She never put a foot wrong
 stylistically, with immaculate pace and timing and balance, tackled the programme with self assurance and skill..." Classical Guitar Magazine

“... altogether an artist, who we are looking forward to hearing again."
Sidney Harland, Scarborough Guitar Society

Anna Strong - Classical Guitarist Feedback

"I wanted to thank her for her performance, which was pitch perfect in every sense. As well as providing exactly the kind of music I had hoped for, she was very adaptable when it turned out she would have to play in two different parts of the venue. She was relaxed and a pleasure to work with, and yes, smartly dressed. A traffic accident held her up for a short while but she texted me with a warning and in fact arrived in plenty of time. The booking procedure was very straightforward, and I think I said before that I found your website very easy to navigate. So you can think of me as a very satisfied customer!  Please convey my warmest thanks to the guitarist." Suzy Powling, Otley Hall June 2016

“Thank-you so much for playing at our wedding on the 29th. You were all we hoped for and more, fantastic!!”  Jeannette and Nick
