Guitar phenomenon Clive Carroll has become a firm favourite with audiences around the world and his return to Mycenae House has been eagerly awaited, after his previous two sell-out shows at this intimate London venue. Clive will be performing at this concert with various musical friends, adding an extra spice to the event.
Clive's masterful compositions, coupled with his versatility and unparalleled technical virtuosity, have rendered him one of today's most admired and respected acoustic guitarists touring today.
Born in England, Clive began his musical journey in Chelmsford, Essex, playing in the family band on a homemade banjo, before he went on to earn a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar from Trinity College of Music in London.
A chance meeting with English guitar legend John Renbourn proved the catalyst for Clive's debut album, Sixth Sense, which Renbourn deemed a milestone in the journey of the steel-string guitar. He subsequently took Clive on the road with him and the pair toured North America and Europe together, launching Clive's solo performing career.
Since then, Clive has established himself as one of the world's premier acoustic guitar players. He has toured across Europe, Australia, the Middle East and North America, garnering praise for his sublime performances of everything from 16th and 17th century lute music to Jazz standards, Blues, Irish reels and his own groundbreaking compositions.
Lauded guitarist Tommy Emmanuel has also taken Clive on the road, and similar nods to Clive's musicianship have been given by everyone from classical guitarist John Williams to Madonna, Guy Ritchie and the Sultanate of Oman.
