Terry Lees (music)

Former National Guitarist of the Year (2000), Terry Lees, will be playing both Chapter 12 and the Wheatsheaf during the beginning of 2013.

As well being a well-known performer in his own right on the folk circuit, Terry has played with such greats as Fairport Convention, Davey Graham, Bert Jansch, Martin Carthy, Labi Siffrie and Lonnie Donegan. He is amazingly talented in practically any music genre but his heart lies with Celtic and British traditional music.

A qualified teacher, Terry offers group and individual guitar tuition and I was lucky enough to see him play when my partner, also a guitarist, was invited to perform at one of Terry's concerts for his pupils several years ago. His style appears effortless and it is easy to get swept away by the music which is primarily instrumental. Close your eyes and it is hard to tell that there is just one person playing!

Chapter 12, Tue 22nd Jan, 19:30.
Wheatsheaf, Sat 2nd Feb, 20:30, with Chris Paige.
