Jules – Acoustic Guitarist | UK

Jules

London-based acoustic guitarist Jules has performed all around the world. He has gained knowledge of a number of styles, notably jazz, flamenco, Latin and African music.

For a relaxed and sensitive performance on the Spanish guitar, Jules plays a wide repertoire for your special event, wedding reception or conference.

Jules’ strength is to play popular melodies on the classical guitar that you will recognise and enjoy listening to. He makes sure he captures the mood of the event, and keeps his music firmly in the background, not playing too loud as to interrupt your flow of conversation.

His versatility is demonstrated by the variety of his set -he could start with the classical theme Romanza, follow with the jazz standard All The Things You Are, then perform the pop-classic Time After Time and go on with the Latin hit Mas Que Nada…

If you’d like to request a particular piece to be played at your event, Jules will be happy to learn it. Jules also has a great ear for a melody and can often improvise a great version of a tune if you ask him on the night, as long as he’s heard it before!

Jules is an in-demand guitarist on the London music scene, performing in a wide range of groups, from flamenco group El Aire, funk band Bassistry, Indian trio Nirakar to Zimbabwean group Harare.

He recently performed at the Roots Festival in Amsterdam, the Diaspora Festival in Senegal and Territorios Festival in Seville.

He’s arranged and directed music for live BBC radio broadcasts, and performed on all the major BBC national radio stations.

He is also a busy teacher, employed as resident guitar teacher at the renowned Arts Ed school in Chiswick.

Standard Length of Performance:

2 or 3 sets of 45 minutes.
