Woody Michaels - Wedding Guitarist

This Devon based classical guitarist was born in Liverpool in 1980 and took up the guitar at the age of ten under the tuition of John Byrne. He moved to Jersey in 1994 and began to attract attention as a talented young guitarist. The following year he was invited to perform a full solo recital at the Jersey Arts Centre - the youngest person ever to do so.

He was given a scholarship to study with Carlos Bonell, Professor of Guitar at the Royal College of Music which was the beginning of a career in music.

He offers a wide variety of background music to suit any occasion from jazz standards and popular songs to more formal classical and spanish music.
