Stewart Pritchard - Classical Guitarist

This guitarist is very experienced and popular with over 25 years professional experience - you can trust him to play beautifully and really provide that musical magic you are looking for.  

His repertoire includes classical, Spanish, flamenco (Gypsy Kings style Rumbas, to John Williams style classical), popular tune arrangements, plus a range of Brazilian Samba/Choros and Argentinean Tangos.

He can play solo guitar, or with professional percussion backing tracks for a much livelier sound.  Capable and experienced with amplifying for any sized venue, or playing fully acoustic for more intimate events.  One of the great things about this act is his long list of popular tunes tastefully arranged for guitar. From love songs to some unexpected pop tunes from the 60s to the present – something for every generation – this can really help to break the ice at a party as your guests will often enjoy playing “name that tune.”  

This act is also a great Jazz Pianist - why not have him play both instruments at different times of the day at your event?

Stewart Pritchard - Classical Guitarist Feedback

This Act's Average Star Rating

A friend of mine had a 50th Birthday dinner and Stewart was playing background Flemenco for us. The whole evening was a huge success for my friend and the background music made it very special. If you are looking for someone who will accommodate what you want then I believe that he is your man.

Teresa D, Yeovil

Just to say thank you Stewart for a great evening for my godparents Diamond wedding , They really enjoyed it and was perfect for the evening Thank you

Rob W, Cameley Lodge,Bristol

Stewart played guitar for our daughter's Renewal of Vows at the Roman Baths, and the music fitted the occasion perfectly - nice selection, great sound, and lovely playing, all organised with the minimum of fuss. Highly recommended.

Anne and Keith, Bath

We run a wedding venue in Somerset, and Stewart is one of our top recommendations to our clients. He is an excellent musician, very professional, and a really lovely chap. It is always a pleasure to have him play at Gants Mill.

Greg B, Bruton

We had the pleasure of hiring Stewart for our wedding in the Cotswolds at the end of June. Stewart played during our ceremony as well as the drinks reception. He is exceptionally talented and all our guests commented on how beautiful the music was. He was also so personable and friendly with my husband and I as well as all our guests. We also asked if he could play a song which was not in his listed repertoire for my walk down the aisle. He was so accommodating to this request and learned the (quite complicated) song superbly. It really made the ceremony so wonderful and personal. We could not recommend him highly enough!

Jacqueline F, Cotswolds

Stewart played classical guitar at our Oxfordshire wedding ceremony. His beautiful playing set the scene perfectly as guests arrived and waited for the bride, as she walked down the aisle and while the register was signed. Thank you Stewart, for helping make our day so joyful.

Nick D, Oxford

Stewart played at my 40th birthday celebration dinner at The Pig, near Bath on Saturday. Without doubt his superb guitar playing contributed hugely to the wonderful atmosphere and overall success of the evening. I can't thank you enough and hope to hear you play again soon!

Kate W, Bath

Stewart Played at my wedding recently, at The Roman Baths. I would highly recommend Stewart, he is a very talented musician and his music created the ambience we wanted at The Roman Baths and many of our guests also commented on his music. Thank you so much Stewart for helping us create a wonderful wedding and playing with Melissa, our harpist.

Nicola P, Bath

Stewart played magnificently a few days ago - his performance was superb. I travelled 40 miles to hear his playing and would happily go twice or three times the distance even though it was only for a couple of hours.

Richard G, Hereford

Stewart was absolutely outstanding in performing at our wedding ceremony. The process was very easy organising him to perform for us. He also gave us a great choice of music for him to perform. The music worked perfectly with what we wanted for the day, and I have had many guests on the day agreeing with what we felt, that Stewart performed brilliantly. Thank you Stewart for helping us to make our day so special, I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks.

Sian J, Bradford on Avon

Stewart recently played at our wedding and was absolutely wonderful. We chose a mixture of classical and pop music throughout the ceremony and reception which he played beautifully on the acoustic guitar. It made our day so special and perfect and our guests said how wonderful the music was. We were really impressed in how versatile and the extensive music repertoire Stewart could offer. Stewart brought such a professional yet friendly atmosphere to the wedding.

Rose and Ben, Salisbury

Stewart played guitar for us at our wedding in August 2015. He really made the day extra special by creating a lovely atmosphere both in our ceremony, playing acoustically and on the outdoors terrace (with speakers). He was very accommodating in the run up to the event ensuring that the playlist would be to our liking. He received lots of compliments from our guests who loved his style which for our event was a mix of recent popular music and Spanish songs. Stewart even played for a little longer than had booked which was really appreciated!

Helen T, Devon

Stewart played Spanish guitar for us at our wedding in Somerset in September 2015. He played during a garden party style drinks reception and managed to create the relaxed elegant vibe that we were looking for. He is a very talented musician and all of my guests who played guitar themselves were enthralled by his ability. Stewart was very professional, was a really lovely person, and helped us to create the most magical day.

Jennifer M, Somerset

I booked Stewart for my 50th Birthday Celebratory Meal in deepest darkest Worcestershire in the middle of September! His Spanish guitar playing transported us all right back into the heart of Seville. Hearing Stewart in person was a very special treat. He plays the Spanish guitar as if he is a native of Spain. He is an accomplished professional who I would thoroughly recommend to anyone who wants to create a very special ambience at their event or celebration. I cannot thank Stewart enough for travelling so far and creating exactly the atmosphere I wanted at my party. Book him and prepare to chill and relax to the wonders of a great classical guitarist.

Helen M, Worcester

Stewart played guitar at our wedding party in Mells in June. It was simply one of the best decisions we made. The music was great and helped create the right vibe for us. Stewart was relaxed, pleasant and professional. Highly recommended.

Phil J, Mells

Stewart played the guitar and the piano at a conference reception that we organised at the Romans Bath. His choice of music and the excellent quality of his performance made the evening very special for us and our guests. His exceptional qualities as an artist were matched by the professionalism that he showed in communication and arrangements before and after the event. I would highly recommend him to anyone who wishes to make their event stand out.

Aydin N, Bath

Stewart played at our wedding on the 1st of October. It was absolutely wonderful and it sounded stunning! He learnt a song we requested for walking down the aisle to, which sounded just perfect. We would recommend Stewart to anyone as he also coped with some unpredictable weather and moved around the venue no problem at all. Guitar music is very special to us and he made our wedding ceremony and reception even more special by playing he most beautiful guitar music. Thank you!!

Daniel J, Shaftesbury

We booked Stewart to play at our wedding breakfast and evening reception and it really was the icing on the cake. The week before I was very stressed out with arrangements including music for the ceremony. Stewart kindly offered to play during the ceremony too and it created a really lovely atmosphere. He played during our wedding breakfast. We chose a mixture of classical music, some tunes we had already decided on and he even managed to play a request for my father. Everyone enjoyed the music and I think what was so lovely was that it was beautifully played without being overpowering. I would totally recommend booking Stewart for a special occasion - well worth it.

Caroline M, Bibury

Stewart Pickard came to play at our wedding reception.in Orchardleigh House near Frome.on 15th September 2017. We wanted live background music to greet our guests as we greeted them in the hallway. Stewart played a magnificent repertoire on both Piano and guitar that was delicate but noticeable, loud enough but not intrusive with some memorable tunes and with such great skill and sensitivity - it was a magnificent event made more profound with Stewart's live music. A sense of majesty and grand occasion was made perfect with his accompaniment. We would recommend Stewart for these reasons above and say he is a top quality professional musician. Thanks again Stewart!

Peter and Rachel, Frome

Stewart sounded wonderful and created the perfect atmosphere for our wedding! He played both piano and guitar and it was beautiful! Our guests all commented on how talented he is. Please don't hesitate to book him!

Naomi, Gloucester

Stewart gave our wedding exactly the right tone and atmosphere. We got married in The Roman Baths, at night, with the torches around the Great Bath flaming. Stewart?s playing was the icing on the cake. We have had so many of our guests commenting. He didn?t just play as we entered, or during the champagne after the ceremony, but also played whilst we were dining. Stewart was the absolute best choice. A wide repertoire, beautifully delivered.

Michelle, Bath

Stewart played music for my husbands 60th birthday. His set was perfect and tailored to the event. We had guitar first followed by the piano. So professional and beautiful music. We would definitely use Stewart again.

Marianne Seabright, Bristol

A wonderfully varied set for Dan and Jody's wedding. Elegantly played and beautifully understated for the ceremony. Great songs for the reception.

Joanne Macleod, Bath

I can't recommend you highly enough. Your music at our son's wedding was perfect. The wedding was at The Assembly Rooms in Bath. The music at the ceremony and during the reception was so well chosen. You play brilliantly and the sound graced the event. Thank you for adding a wonderful finishing touch to the day.

Kath Squire, Bath

Very professional and prompt in all correspondence. Did a great job at our wedding

Jenny Boyd, Swindon

Phenomenal Talent. exquisite musical ability. fantastic timing. Amazing choice of songs. you made my nephew's wedding so memorable, especially when we all joined in during the reception singing along to Dont stop me now and by the look on your face you weren't quite expecting that! thank you Stewart. You come highly recommended.

Bernadette Thompson, Bath

Thank you, Stewart, for providing such lovely entertainment at our birthday celebration last weekend. The music was beautiful and enjoyed by all our guests. It made the event feel very special and memorable.

Michelle Boobier, Bristol

Stewart played for our wedding at The lamb in Hindon (we traveled from New Zealand). Every guest at our wedding commented on the quality of his playing, and the thoroughly enjoyable repertoire. If you are considering a musician to enhance your special day, Stewart is definitely the man for the Job! thanks again very much.

Mark Patterson, Tisbury

Stewart played at our wedding at The Rectory and he totally exceeded our expectations! He was amazing, his music (Fields of Gold as I walked down the aisle) was something I will never forget. He is a truly lovely guy and his professionalism second to none. All our guests loved him too .... cannot recommend Stewart highly enough.

Sue Glass, Malmesbury

I first saw Stewart playing at a Spanish restaurant in Center parcs... and my wedding had been booked for the year after.. to which I still hadn't found the music for...So he thankfully agreed to come to our wedding and play the afternoon and early evening. What a total godsend!!! His music resonated throughout our whole wedding...We couldn't have asked for anything more (apart from nice weather) We highly recommend Stewart. Thank you for making our day as beautiful as I imagined & hoped.

Katie Williams, Swindon

We booked Stewart for our wedding in August 2016 because we loved the sound of his playing on his website. It was even better on the day and sounded so beautiful as we walked down the aisle and listened during the canapes. My husband and I can highly recommend Stewart for any function as an excellent classical guitarist he was so professional and flexible. So many of our guests commented on how lovely his playing was, so if you book him for your function then you are in for a treat.

Adeleine Miller, Taunton

When planning my wedding one thing I knew I wanted was a guitarist to play lovely music whilst I walked down the aisle and whilst my guests ate their dinner. When searching i came across this act and saw his vast array of.choices after listening to just one of his recordings i was sold!!! His music is so stunning, he is very professional and such a lovely man. He really goes above and beyond to make your day special whether it be a wedding or just a party. I encourage everyone who is looking for a guitarist / pianist to get in contact. You will not be disappointed. I guarantee you that!

Jodi Squire, Bath

Stewart played at our wedding ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast on Saturday 11th November. It was amazing! The playlist was exactly what we had discussed and many of our guests have specifically complimented what a great idea it was to have such fantastic music throughout. Thank you, Stewart for helping to make our wedding magical!

Sarah Nunes, Windsor

I just wanted to say I was absolutely delighted with he as the guitarist at our wedding. Everyone thought it was delightful. My dad (who is also a guitarist) said in the speeches he must have had three hands! We could not have been happier and the atmosphere he created was so special. We loved it and he was a real joy to chat to also. He entertained our guests from beginning to end and everyone said how wonderful he was. It made our day! Thank you!

Veronica Ryan, Somerset

We booked Stewart to play at our small wedding ceremony and reception and it really made a wonderful day even more special. He played a combination of traditional and Spanish/flamenco music. He played everything without music and never missed a single note. ?The music was subtle, effective and never overpowering. He is a lovely man and clearly very talented. ?I would highly recommend him for any special occasion, not just a wedding.
