This month our Court In Session: Windsor Guitar Nights features John Wheatcroft and Sean de Burca. Further acts to be announced.
Guitarist John Wheatcroft seamlessly integrates the sound and approach of modern jazz with the timeless Franco-American swing of the legendary Django Reinhardt, producing a sound that is both rooted in the traditions of the genre and vital, forward-thinking and is highly original. This evening John will be performing a solo mix of original compositions and compelling arrangements with improvisation to the fore. This promises to be an event not to be missed.
Sean de Burca
Sean de Burca is a percussive acoustic guitarist from Kent, who utilises every part of the guitar and various effects pedals to create soaring, upbeat instrumental songs with guitar body percussion and fretboard tapping. By 2014, having played the guitar for just 7 years, he was named as one of the top 30 acoustic guitarists under the age of 30 worldwide by Acoustic Guitar Magazine (USA), as well as being featured as Acoustic Magazine's (UK) 'Next Big Thing'.
"From harmonics to percussive slapping to agile fretboard dancing, this southpaw knows a thing or two about getting the most sound possible out of his guitar. On his three full-length releases on Bandcamp, the self-taught guitarist shows he isn’tafraid of taking risks." - Acoustic Guitar Magazine 2014.
