Jack Hancher

May 24 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
  • This event has passed.

Jack Hancher was described by Gendai Guitar Magazine as a “poet and a painter, colouring sounds out of the guitar as if his imagination and the guitar were one”. In 2022, he won the prestigious Gold Medal of the Royal Overseas League Competition, becoming just the third guitarist to win the award. This was preceded in 2021 by a tour of several European Guitar Festivals as a EuroStrings Artist.

Jack has performed across Europe in venues such as the Wigmore Hall, Kings Place, St David’s Hall, Cardiff and has performed live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune.

Today’s recital will feature a selection of works by Debussy, Satie, Dowland, and Britten. Jack will be releasing his debut album with the record label Deux-Elles in 2024, consisting of music by English composers.
