Rik Roberts – Worlds of the Guitar
Goosfest welcomes back guitar virtuoso Rik Roberts who contributed last year to our event on the life and music of Bob Dylan. Rik will perform his highly acclaimed show ‘Worlds of the Guitar,’ which has been captivating large audiences as he takes then on an inspirational journey through the many faces of the instrument. Classical, Spanish, South American, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Country, World and popular guitar are all presented masterfully alongside a humorous commentary. A selection of the music from within the show is available on CD and as MP3 downloads from Amazon.
Rik is a graduate of Birmingham Conservatoire and a former ‘Young Musician of the Year’ contestant. He studied with international classical guitarists Craig Ogden and Simon Dinnigan and composers Andrew Downes and John Mayor. Rik now runs his own guitar tuition music school alongside an increasingly busy performance schedule.
