John Pring - Classical Guitarist

The classical guitar is a romantic musical instrument and expresses every emotion with its harmonious chords and lyrical arpeggios. This guitarist understands that special events need the grace, elegance and feeling which music gives the occasion. His extensive repertoire, from classical to contemporary is perfect.

Weddings - Greeting the guests: popular tunes for every age, Gershwin, The Lion King, Cole Porter, The Beatles, Beauty and the Beast, Simply Red, show hits like Mama Mia or West Side Story, Take That, Simon and Garfunkel OR – pure classical: Bach, Villa Lobos, Granados, Albeniz and many more.

The Bride’s entrance: whichever special music the bride wishes – Spanish Romance, Pachelbel’s Canon, or something more contemporary - Up Where We Belong, Lady in Red … whatever you choose will sound exquisitely tasteful. The same consideration will be given to music accompanying signing the register.

His experience means your guests enjoy the music. He offers consultation and expert guidance in choosing music that will enhance the dignity and emotional importance of ceremonies and bring fun and entertainment to any event.
