About us

Ealing Guitar Society has been acting as a source of live guitar music since 1969 in the West London area. We welcome both players and listeners of guitar music alike and are proud to have counted amongst our members and performers a number of well-known and aspiring players.

Since our inaugural meeting over 40 years ago, performers at the society have included Carlos Bonnell, Antonio de Innocentis, Flavio Cucchi, Nigel North, Philip John Lee, Rose Andresier, Brad Richter, Gilbert Biberian, Liona Boyd, Luis Zea, Joy Hyman, Juan Martin, Greg Nestor, David Russell, David Parsons, Alfonso Montes . .

There have also been several BBC young performers, as well as students of the leading UK schools of music (Royal Academy, Royal Northern College, Royal College of Music and London College of Music).

Meetings are held regularly, at 7.30pm on the first Sunday of each month, at St. Matthew's Church Hall, North Common Road, Ealing, very close to Ealing Common and Ealing Broadway stations.

The focal point for the Society has always been to promote interest in the guitar and other fretted instruments ( i.e. banjo, bouzouki, dulcimer, lute,mandolin and sitar).  The guitar has also been combined with flute, piano, recorder, violin and voice.
