One of the most innovative acoustic guitarists in the UK today, Gordon Giltrap has developed his own unique style, much copied, but never bettered.
With over 40 years in the business, Gordon will satisfy fans with his best-loved hits, as well as explaining the history of his many different guitars.
Be prepared for beautiful compositions that cross all musical genres, wit, charm and unbelievable talent. Well known for his collaborations with other artists and his work for both the BBC and commercial television, Heartsong is instantly recognised as the theme for the holiday programme.
Gordon continues to delight his audiences and no two concerts are ever the same. He continues to compose and record new material with his album Shining Morn released in 2010 to critical acclaim and his current project with Oliver Wakeman going from strength to strength.

Joe Broughton set up this incredible band 16 years ago. Long before the current trend of big folk band line-ups and crazy folk fusions this band were drawing on influences of folk, funk, classical, ska, reggae, jazz, hip-hop and everything in between.
Not only is the live performance of this 45 piece band (or funky orchestra should we say?!) second to none, you will most likely see the stars of tomorrow. Joe has taught Jim Moray, Sam Sweeney, Katriona Gilmore, The Old Dance School, Jack McNeill and Charlie Heys to name just a few.
The Conservatoire Folk Ensemble is forever changing, always unique and has an energy and power that is unrivalled; it has to be seen to be believed. Using players from the prestigious Birmingham Conservatoire ensures that the standard of musicianship is top drawer and being led by folk fiddler Joe Broughton (Urban Folk Quartet, Albion Band) means the music has the feel of a spontaneous folk orchestra and a show that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
If you are fully fledged folk fan, lover of any good music or just looking for a fantastic night out we guarantee that this is the gig for you. It also comes highly recommended for inspiring young musicians!

Shooglenifty in concert in Malvern 17th May 2013.
Venue: Malvern Cube, Albert Rd North, Malvern, WR14 2YF
Shooglenifty are one of Scotland’s most unique musical exports, credited with being the originators of ‘Acid croft’ a fiery and infectious blend of Celtic traditional music and dance grooves that band members describe as ‘hypno-funkadelic ambient trad’
Their fiery instrumental lyricism pulsating with infectious rhythm and drive creates a sound that is at once epic and inclusive, soulful and stirring; and commands a musical presence that takes the crowd by the hand and dances them on an exhilarating romp through uncharted territory.
‘This is tradition standing on its head…doing cart wheels and pole vaulting over every barrier in sight’…The Irish Times
‘…a bit like a jam between the Tannahill Weavers, Phish and the Chemical Brothers’ …Chicago Tribune
Tickets are £15.00 and available in advance from
Malvern Theatre box office 01684 892277
Bar from 8.00pm support act on stage 8.15, Shooglenity from 9.00pm
