Some of us think nothing of spending a lot of money at one of the area’s pricier venues to hear a Yo-Yo Ma, a Renee Fleming, a Joshua Bell. Although he is much too modest to suggest it himself, English guitarist Clive Carroll belongs in their company.
And on March 1, Clive Carroll returns to Memphis. You will want to be there.
Described by Acoustic Guitar magazine as "the best and most original young acoustic guitar player and composer in Britain" and by Total Guitar magazine as "one of the Top 10 Acoustic Guitarists of all time, " Clive has toured extensively throughout Europe, North America, and Australia and has played on numerous film soundtracks including Driving Lessons, the score of which he co-wrote with John Renbourn.
Clive Carroll plays the acoustic guitar as well as you are likely to hear it played by anyone, past or present, live or on recordings.
Mr. Carroll is no respecter of boundaries—his musical passport bears the stamps of a dizzying variety of genres. He moves effortlessly from a Jerry Reed finger-buster to a stately Celtic march to “Stompin’ at the Savoy” to John Dowland’s “Frog Galliard,” all played flawlessly on a steel-string acoustic guitar.
He is Foremost Among Fingerstylists, The Count of Call and Response, the Exchequer of Euphony, the Paganini of Pickers, the Which Than Which There is No Whicher. written by John Reed
John Renbourn, who knows a thing or two about guitar playing, called Clive Carroll’s first recording, Sixth Sense, “a milestone on the journey of the steel-string guitar."
fRoots magazine dubbed Carroll “truly a guitarist for all seasons.”
“a joyful fairground ride of instrumental styles spanning the fields of traditional, classical and jazz with inspirations running from newgrass and fusion jazz to Irish stylings” Arts Alive
