Gary Thorpe - Flamenco Guitarist & Oud Player Feedback

"A belated but big 'thank you' for a wonderful session on the 20th June. Your guitar playing was outstanding, and the sound that you created with the oud was remarkable. Fantastic all round. I hope we have occasion to book you again. You are a truly talented musician and we are honoured that you could perform at our celebration." Geoff and Ali, June 2015
