On Sunday 3rd Feb, Richard Clarke and Steve Dell will play at Ealing Guitar Society!
The funds received at the door on the night will help sponsor a future celebrity concert in 2014.
Please support the efforts of the players if you can.
Richard was born in Liverpool in 1959, had classical guitar lessons in his teens, and obtained an ALCM diploma. Since that time he continued practising and learning and have been a member of the EGS for about 20 years. He has performed at the EGS a number of times and at charity events, including an annual appearance at mental health charity MIND’s festival in Kingston. In addition to his classical work he have worked with singer David Jennings and Australian composer and producer Cliff Bradley to write and record songs. He loves the sound and versatility of the classical guitar and will present a programme of music ranging from renaissance to romantic music.

Steve has been playing the guitar since his eighth birthday, inspired by his father Chris, who wrote a series of tutor books for the guitar, piano, descant and treble recorders in the 1970s. Chris attended the earliest concerts at the Ealing Guitar Society from 1970-1973, which inspired him to form the Old Malthouse Music Society in Sawbridgeworth, Hertfordshire in 1975, which he chaired until 2002.
During this ‘Golden Age of the Guitar’, Steve attended all the concerts and workshops until his late teens, picking up tips and tricks from some of the best teachers of their day, including Terry Spooner, John Duarte, John Mills, Cheryl Grice, David Russell, Graham Wade, Chris Kilvington, Neil Smith.
Steve is primarily a guitar teacher, who enjoys accepting the opportunity of playing live from time to time.
His programme (as yet undecided) will include material similar to the one on this video
