John Goldie is a world class acoustic guitarist, whose influences include jazz, blues and funk. By the time he left school he was already earning a living from playing music, and in his early career toured Europe with several Motown acts from the USA.
After meeting jazz guitarist Martin Taylor MBE (who played with Stephan Grappelli), John ended up playing with Martin as a duo and as part of the band, Spirit of Django.
He has recorded a number of albums that have received 5-star reviews and is now regarded as one of the most revered players on the world acoustic circuit, and has played alongside the likes of Tommy Emmanuel, Ike Isaacs and George Benson.
John is a regular tutor at the Ullapool Guitar Festival and the workshop at the Tin Hut will be aimed at intermediate to advanced players, rather than beginners, though all levels of ability would be welcome to come along and listen. The evening concert will appeal to all lovers of acoustic guitar music.’
