Liverpool composer and multi-instrumentalist Neil Campbell, who has been described by Classical Guitar Magazine as "an outstanding guitarist whose originality of thought makes him far more than just another gifted purveyor of finger acrobatics", will present a concert of original music for solo classical guitar.

As part of a prolific discography of over twenty albums of original mainly instrumental music for various ensembles, Neil has produced four albums of solo guitar music for nylon strung classical guitar, Through the Looking Glass (2003), Night Sketches (2004), Tabula Rasa Suite (2014) and a live album Alive in Prohibition (2022).

As a solo guitarist he has performed in the UK and Europe and particularly enjoys playing in special venues such as old buildings, churches and libraries, including Union Chapel (London), Bishop’s House (Sheffield), Birkenhead Priory, Liverpool’s Hornby Library and Manchester’s John Rylands Library, to name but a few.

His original solo guitar compositions which can veer from exciting and virtuosic to meditative and heartfelt, draw upon elements of the classical guitar repertoire with added shades of jazz, folk and progressive rock.

"One of the best acoustic guitar players of our time" (Jon Neudorf, Sea of Tranquillity)
