This is a quick late night post. Warning! It’s terribly rock’n’roll.

In the really quite lovely setting of the 800 year old ecclesiastical establishment, All HallowsGedling, the respected English guitarist Gordon Giltrap, earlier this evening entertained a full pew set with pieces spanning his career.

I’m not quite sure how I made it there. A friend emailed me the details a while ago and having some vague recollection of the man I said yes. Very pleased I did as well.

He is massively skilled and the playing was beguiling to watch.

Here are a couple of videos of two of the most outstanding pieces, although all of it was fascinating.

This first one is called Dodo’s Dream and uses live played loop effects to brilliant effect….

This one he played as the encore and is really quite stunning…..

And I want one of these……
