Barnie Price - Classical Guitarist

This classical guitarist grew up in Farnham, Surrey and started learning to play the guitar at the age of 12. His first classical guitar teacher was Surrey based musician Richard Veitch. Having reached Grade 8 at the age of 16, he then studied music at 'A' level and went on to study classical guitar at the Royal College of Music (RCM) with both Carlos Bonell and Gary Ryan. In his first term at the RCM, he won the Peter Pears Duo prize with singer Mark Chaundy.

After gaining a Diploma of Higher Education from the RCM and attending masterclasses with Fabio Zanon, Ben Verdery and Adrian Walters, he auditioned to be lead guitarist in a new 8 piece classical crossover group called 'The Planets'. As well as all over the UK the group performed in Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Germany, Monaco, Amsterdam, Paris, New York, Washington, Boston and Philadelphia. They also supported (to high acclaim) rock legends Deep Purple on the UK and Germany legs of their 2002-2003 world tour. They performed live at the Classical Brit Awards held at the Royal Albert Hall, The Queens Golden Jubilee classical concert held at Buckingham Palace and on countless TV and radio programmes in the UK and abroad including Children in Need, This Morning and The Generation Game.

His audition was successful and they gave their debut concert at 'The Royal Festival Hall' on the 13th September 2001 with him playing classical, flamenco, acoustic and electric guitars. The debut album (released under EMI Classics/Dramatico) was entitled 'Classical Graffiti' and went straight to number one in the UK classical charts, where it stayed for over 12 weeks. Over the next few years over 200,000 copies were sold worldwide and the album continues to sell today.

He has supported many charities from the local charities such as Fosta and the Rotary Clubs, then in July 2003 the band, all talented musicians, decided to go their own ways and pursue their individual careers. As a solo artist, he has performed at the Ritz Hotel London, The FHM Menswear awards (held at The Natural History Museum), The Stafford Hotel London and has accompanied singing superstar Andrea Bocelli on two occasions. He is also featured on singer/songwriter Michael Kruk's debut EP entitled 'Playing for Kisses' and continues to work with Michael Kruk on his forth-coming album.

This guitarist also has the option of a battery amplifier which is very useful for outdoor bookings.
