Thomas Egerton - Classical Guitarist Cardiff

This classical guitarist is a vibrant, sensitive musician specialising in high quality performances of classical and Spanish music on the guitar. His repertoire also incorporates refined renditions from the pop and jazz repertoire.

Allow his finesse and musical poetry to win you and your guests over with his expansive repertoire spanning the Baroque to the present day with music from all over the globe. Request a specific genre or favourite piece in advance and arrangements can be made to tailor a perfect soundtrack to your special day. 

He began playing the guitar at the age of nine and has studied at the Norwegian Academy of Music, Oslo and with John Mills and Christopher Stell at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama where he graduated with a Bachelor degree with a distinction in performance and a Masters degree. During his studies he performed at the William Walton Festival in Oldham in Spring 2004 attended by Lady Walton, and was invited to perform at her estate on Ischia, Italy the following April. He has also performed for the Singaporean Prime Minister, and at the Bolivar Hall International Guitar Festival in London and gave the first guitar recital in the Wales Millennium Centre. More recently he has performed extensively in Paris and across France during his six years living in the French capital, in addition to performances at festivals in Germany, Slovenia, UK and France.

In addition to playing recitals throughout the British Isles, he is available for events such as wedding receptions and ceremonies, society functions, and corporate dinners and conferences. Either for unobtrusive live background music or informal recitals, the beautiful sounds of his classical guitar will bring style and elegance to any sized occasion.

He is based in South Wales and performs at weddings up to 4 hours from Cardiff and in the South West of England and Cornwall as his family are based there.
