His extensive repertoire includes traditional flamenco and classical guitar pieces composed by Spanish and South American composers.

“He was a pleasure to work with, turned up well ahead of time and played beautifully throughout the lunchtime reception. He was friendly and courteous and much enjoyed by the audience.”

Paul, corporate reception, Cardiff, March 2019

“First and foremost, Christopher's playing abilities were great as many of our family also play guitars I was keen to have someone accomplished. He played at my birthday party in a nice hotel alongside afternoon tea and many guests said how lovely it was. I would book him again. He was helpful, answered emails on time, was pleasant and I am thinking about when i can have another party so I can get him to come and play!”

Dorothy, Birthday party, Falsely Hall, Daventry, April 2019

“Chris played at our wedding reception. He played a lovely selection of pieces that were greatly appreciated by me, my wife and our guests. Chris was very friendly and helpful both in discussing our requirements beforehand and on the day. I would not hesitate to recommend him.”

John, Wedding, Backwell House Hotel, Bristol, September 2018

“I just wanted to thank you again for performing for us last Sunday. I've had many guests voluntarily offering very positive feedback on your playing which helped the party to go extremely well. Thanks and best wishes.”

Malcolm, Sanpa Spanish Restaurant, Wokingham, May 2018

“Chris arrived early, was very amiable, performed very well and is a credit to his profession. Would definitely use him again should the occasion arise. Our guests were extremely happy and thought his contribution added to a wonderful celebration for my wife.”
