Scottish Guitar Quartet

Scottish GuitarQuartet
In Concert

Formed in the spring of 2000, SGQ have toured extensively throughout the UK and Ireland. Inspired by Celtic, Modern, Classical and Jazz genres, fused with World influences to create music that combines these diverse styles producing a powerfully elegant, eclectic sound that is truly distinctive. Each musician has his own individual style, a vital ingredient in any ensemble however; the textures and timbres emanating from four acoustic guitars produce an electrifying experience for every listener.

 

The four-piece SGQ return to us to play the original compositions that make up their new album Landmarks. Their repertoire hovers somewhere between chamber music and jazz, all highly scored yet threaded through with improvisation. This unique cross-over has become a popular hit with the four guitarists creating a breathtaking live act.
