£10.00

Neil Campbell – classical guitar
Anne Taft – soprano (Ghost Stories)
Shaun Taft – visuals (Ghost Stories)

Liverpool composer and multi-instrumentalist Neil Campbell’s work traverses minimalism, progressive rock, world music & jazz. He has been called ‘an outstanding guitarist whose originality of thought makes him far more than just another gifted purveyor of finger acrobatics.’ by Classical Guitar Magazine and his work has been referred to by Tom Robinson, BBC 6 Music, as ‘music of serious quality and distinction’ .

In this performance Neil will perform an exciting uptempo opening set of original music for solo guitar in which he uses loops and delays to expand the scope of the solo classical guitar. In the second half of the concert he will be joined by soprano Anne Taft for a complete performance of Ghost Stories.

“As I listen to this, I imagine grey clouds whirring by in stop-motion frenzy, or a vampire crying as the October sun rises. This is simply so romantic and resonant. A perfect album for quiet nights alone with the soul. “Ghost Stories” manages to be ambient, instrumental, and goth all rolled in one. Highly recommended.” – Gary Flanagan, Nightwaves

Neil Campbell appearing at this event

Neil Campbell is a highly individual and innovative musician whose music for solo classical guitar ranges from the virtuosic to the highly introspective. Performing live as a soloist he often integrates looping technology and other electronics to process the sound of the guitar, creating instant multi-layered guitar symphonies. 'The best guitar playing I have heard for a long, long time' (Victor Wooten, bass player) '... an outstanding guitarist whose originality of thought makes him far more than just another gifted purveyor of finger acrobatic' (Classical Guitar Magazine) '... a man whose fingers have the ability to harness any imaginable sound in any given style' (Sean Bradbury, Getintothis).
