Lap Tap Percussion Guitarist

Lap Tap Percussion Guitarist London


Adam is from Glasgow, Scotland which is the home of where his music talents began.

Starting as a street busker Adam got his first taste of street performing and carried around the world.

His talent has been heard from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Bahrain formula one, Muscat International Festival and to Dubai’s Marina Music Festival.

He was lucky enough to perform in the same venue as Sting, Olly Murrs and Catherine Jenkins at the Henley Festival in 2011.


Adam is not your everyday acoustic player, using a technique called “Lap Tapping”; he rests the guitar on his lap and powerfully taps the frets and strings to create a captivating cacophony.

Learning this style came to him after a small accident which fractured one of Adam’s fingers made it difficult to play the guitar as normal.

Learning this new style took the street out of the weaker finger but also developed his preference to play this way.

To this day Adam has been glued to this way of playing which has given him a unique and recognisable sound that can be heard wherever his music takes him.

A unique and mesmerizing talent, Adam is perfect for functions, parties and events in and around London.



I first saw Adam as I was walking down Buchanan Street in Glasgow; I knew I had to have him play at my wedding! Adam came along and entertained the guests after the ceremony at Glenskirlie Castle; everyone loved his set and commented on it, guests and staff!!! Adam was fantastic, professional and I would definitely recommend him!!!

I would like to recommend the artistic skills and professionalism of Adam. We booked Adam to perform at Dubai Marina for the National Day music celebrations for Dec 2011. His music is sublime and his audience interaction is wonderful.
I can recommend highly.

It was great having Adam in Henley throughout the festival. The music is really unusual and interesting – as well as good of course – and he’s a really engaging guy to have around. Very nice! All best – and I hope all goes well.
