Clive Carroll *

7th February 2022

Clive Carroll made his musical debut at age two as a banjo-strumming cowboy singing nursery rhymes, and went on to earn a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar from the famed Trinity College of Music in London—all the while balancing his classical work with forays into the world of the steel string guitar and beyond. He has toured and worked with guitar greats such as John Renbourn, John Williams, Tommy Emmanuel, Xuefei Yang, and Ralph Towner. With a signature blend of warmth and humour that belies his dazzling technical skill, Clive has created a sound world all his own. His eclectic and wide ranging compositions feature influences mined from the delicate cadences of Elizabethan lute classics, the imaginative eccentricity of Frank Zappa, visionary classical composers such as Bartok and Ligeti, and hints of jazz and Delta blues!
