Earagail Arts Festival in association with the Regional Cultural Centre presents

Derek Gripper

Event Description

Derek Gripper plus Simon McCafferty

A masterclass in the sonic possibilities of the guitar, Derek Gripper performs a 21-string kora composition from Mali on a six-string classical guitar, a feat which the legendary John Williams said was “absolutely impossible until I heard Derek Gripper do it.” An engagingly honest and fresh interpretation of music that perfectly balances tradition with real innovation.

“An astonishing guitarist”
Mark Radcliffe, BBC Radio 2
