David – Flamenco & Classical Guitarist

David is as professional and versatile as they come,  flamenco, jazz, classical, classic pop and many other styles. Not only he has the technical virtuoso of an accomplished classical guitarist, he delivers his flamenco performance with pulsating accuracy and rhythmic flamboyance.

He is just at home performing for a large concert where he is the star of the show or as a soloist for a corporate or private event during dinner, canapes, or  during the wedding breakfast and wedding registration ceremony.

At the age of seven, he began learning the classical guitar. Later he gained an interest for traditional Spanish music, studying the intricate rhythms of flamenco.

He is an award winning guitarist and won his first guitar competition award at the age of 10.  He studied jazz and classical music at Leeds College of Music under the tutelage of Luigi Palumbo (classical guitar) and left with the much coveted college guitar prize.

He later furthered his studies in Seville, the capital of flamenco with guitarists such as Fran Cortes, Miguel Angel Cortes and Manuel Berraquero and studied accompaniment of Cante and Baile in Seville.

He  has performed in England, Ireland, Denmark, Holland, Spain Germany and France with shows such as Fame, Sisters of Soul, Carmen, and West Side Story as well as performing as a solo artist and guitar demonstrator. He has made numerous television appearances and appeared at the Dundee Guitar Festival, Rhythms in the City Festival, Leeds, the Funk, Soul and Jazz Festival, London and the Edinburgh Festival, Scotland.

He is an ideal addition to any event that is going to feature a DJ or live band after dinner or even a very small intimate event that requires live music.

  1. Hi David,
    I am marrying a spanish man and we are looking for someone to play a flamenca and spanish guitar through parts of the wedding in november. we were in seville on the weekend and would really like traditional sounds, we are also looking for a couple to dance a flamenca. We like the demos above, and were wondering if you would you be able to send me any more samples? Any further information on rates etc would be great. Thanks, look forward to hearing from you.
