Aled Day - Classical Guitarist

This classical guitarist is based in Devon and performs for all occasions in the South and South west of England and beyond. His rich and varied repertoire can be tailored to suit every occasion including weddings or any public or private event.

He began learning the guitar at the age of 11 and now has a successful career that spans more than 16 years providing music for all events as well as performing regularly in concert. His highly skilled and sensitive playing has earned him a reputation in England and abroad with extensive concert tours of the Far East playing to audiences in Japan and Korea. He has also featured on live radio and his recordings have been used in film and TV.

His unique and stylish sets are much in demand and have proved memorable to his audiences. Whether a non - intrusive backdrop to informal conversation or  particular music for the wedding ceremony, his music is guaranteed to enhance the atmosphere.

He is also happy to perform in costume for medieval banquets and historical re-enactment events, creating an authentic Elizabethan ambience with his wide repertoire of Renaissance music.

He can offer a versatile programme of music that spans Renaissance and Baroque through to Classical, Spanish, Latin, Celtic and contemporary - featuring composers such as Bach, Tarrega, Sor, Dowland and Giuliani among others. He is available for hire for all occasions. Please contact him to talk about your requirements. He will adapt his skills to your needs and can play either solo or in a duo, accompanied by a harpist, flautist, violinist or another guitarist.

This guitarist also has the option of a battery amplifier which is very useful for outdoor bookings.

This guitarist is also available as part of a Flute and Guitar Duo

Aled Day - Classical Guitarist Feedback

"Thank you so much for your wonderful playing yesterday. I will send you a photo of you sitting in the garden under that lovely tree when I get the pictures from the photographer. So many people commented on how much they liked your beautiful music and it created such a lovely atmosphere as the guests arrived." Wendy Batten, September 2015

Hi Geoff, I'm pleased to say that our wedding was a success as was the guitarist's music. He was very well turned out, polite, friendly, punctual and able to organise himself which allowed me to stress about some of the other last minute details. His classical music really set the tone during our ceremony and was well received by everybody. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a similar service. Booking through your agency was a pleasurable experience. Even though we left it relatively late you were able to secure us an excellent guitarist, with the contracts signed and exchanged within a matter of days. Many thanks for all your help. Dan Farthing October 2013

"We bought your guitar CDs when you played a concert at Deborah Wood's Art Room in Topsham some time ago. What a lovely evening that was. We think you are certainly on a par with John Williams and Julian Bream!'
