Gus Roberts - Classical Guitarist
This classical guitarist is based in Suffolk and is available for recitals, weddings and functions.
He plays a varied repertoire ranging from relaxing classics to Spanish fireworks, and will add a touch of class to any occasion whether the need is background music for a wedding or private function, or indeed a classical recital. He has proved a popular choice for wedding receptions, especially the more intimate occasions, although he plays with discrete amplification if the venue requires this.
His classical repertoire spans 4 centuries and also includes popular classics such as Cavatina, Spanish Romance and arrangements of songs by artists such as the Beatles.
Examples of events and venues include:
Lunchtime recitals at St. Martin in the Fields; St. James's Church Piccadilly; Sherringham Theatre; St. Mary Le Tower, Ipswich; opening evening of the Ipswich Arts Festival 2006 (gala occasion attended by the Mayor of Ipswich), and other special occasions and business recognition events.
As part of a duo he plays a regular recital programme including lunchtime recitals at the Ipswich Art Festival (2006), Long Melford Church recital series, Ofton Church 'Magical Musical Moments' (evening recital that raised over £1000 pounds for local charity), Ipswich Methodist church evening recital, numerous private functions including a Cambridge college dinner, a major Art exhibition private view in Newmarket, and other special occasions and business recognition events.
