Stephen Yates

Stephen Yates is one of the few composer/guitarists in the UK. He began playing the guitar aged 13 after hearing a recording of Andres Segovia on the radio. He then studied in London with Douglas Rogers and performed widely both as a classical guitarist, winning several competitions including "Guitarist" magazine's "Guitarist Of The Year" and also as an electric guitarist with the band "Scat Opera". He now lives in Devon.

Stephen will perform a programme of his own works as well as works from the classical guitar repertoire including Jorge Morel's exciting arrangement of "West Side Story".
