Geoff Robb began studying classical guitar when he was 11 years old and spent 12 years as a street performer playing throughout the UK and most of Western Europe. Geoff is also a composer and has merged his love of Celtic and Spanish music, his classical training and deep interest in healing to write a set of beautiful, melodic and ethereal pieces which will transport you away.
**The long awaited CD of Geoff’s compositions will be released on Friday 12th May 2017 at St Mary’s Church in Glynde, East Sussex! – tickets available from the CD crowd-funding page: www.pledgemusic.com/geoffrobb **
He performs on a guitar he built himself with the expert help of luthiers Richard Osborne and Cameron Mobbs.
He studied classical guitarist with Paul Gregory (winner of the International Segovia Prize), and has had tuition from many of the top classical guitarists and has a diploma in jazz. He has performed Vivaldi’s ‘Concerto for Lute in D’ (on the guitar) with The Bath Concertina Orchestra but works mostly as a soloist, playing recitals at arts festivals and guitar festivals across the UK and can often be seen as the ‘warm-up act’ for many international touring guitarists as they pass through Sussex.
“Geoff Robb – an outstanding guitarist. Every song he played was impeccable and his innovative technique was of the highest standard.” The Argus
Original composition ‘Returning’ – performed on his Nick Benjamin steel string guitar
Geoff is based in Sussex and alongside his concert work, he enjoys providing beautiful background music, both gentle and entertaining for weddings, corporate events and parties. He specialises in classical music from Spain and Latin America but also includes music that your guests will know and love including arrangements of popular songs.
