Andrew Scott - Wedding Guitarist

Andrew loves performing for weddings and parties. At your ceremony he would play as your guests assemble, then for the entrance, the signing of the resister and for the exit. He would then play during your drinks reception, or during your wedding meal. His playing is sensitive and non-intrusive.

Andrew is a classically trained guitarist and enjoys playing a mixture of classical, Spanish and popular music. He studied with some of the leading musicians in the guitar world at music college then toured the former USSR, produced his debut album in 2003 and traveled the world as an Assistant Cruise Director/Guitarist with Seabourn Cruise Line. While at sea he had his own solo show and enjoyed entertaining guests in the bar with a selection of sophisticated music that everyone would recognise and enjoy.

Andrew is currently recording a CD for Sleeveless Records of songs and theme tunes from the movies. 

This guitarist is available as part of a London Classical Guitar Duo
