Two Fine Guitarists Share a Stage at The Met

The Met welcomes Gordon Giltrap with Woody Mann, two remarkable guitarists together for the first time on Thursday 16 June at 8pm.

Gordon Giltrap is an English acoustic and electric guitarist and composer, whose musical styles cross multiple genres.

Learning the guitar at the age of twelve, never receiving any formal tuition, he developed his own unique style and technique. Gordon\’s musical career started to take off in the 1960s, playing alongside contemporaries such as Bert Jansch (who greatly influenced the young guitarist), John Renbourn, Mike Oldfield, Rick Wakeman and John Williams.

Woody Mann is a New Yorker who plays an enticing acoustic mix of blues, roots and jazz. He is an outstanding performer who plays with passion and a deep sensitivity to his music with an easy, laid-back style.

Woody began his guitar career as a youngster at the feet of the legendary Rev. Gary Davis and also studied with noted Chicago-born pianist Lennie Tristano, who introduced him to jazz. Mann has pursued a rich and diverse career, which ranges from playing with jazz great Attila Zoller, accompanying songwriter Dory Previn, and teaching guitar to legendary recording artist Paul Simon. He has recorded extensively and performed everywhere from the orchestra pits of Broadway to festivals, clubs and concert stages worldwide.

Tickets for the show are £14, £12 concession and the show starts at 8pm. Guarantee your place by calling the ticket office now on 0161 761 2216 or go on line www.themet.biz
