Andrew Booth - Guitarist
Andrew Booth is one of the most exciting young guitarists in the UK. He recently completed his Bachelor of Music degree with First Class Honours at the Royal Northern College of Music where he studied with Gordon Crosskey and Craig Ogden. Andrew has won awards from the Musicians' Benevolent Fund, Countess of Munster Musical Trust and a major scholarship from the RNCM where he is now a postgraduate student. Recently, Andrew was invited to join the Countess of Munster Recital scheme for the 2009/10 season.
In Summer 2008, Andrew Booth was the only UK musician to be invited to perform at the SoundSCAPE Contemporary Music Festival in Italy where he gave world premiere performances of three new works specially commissioned for the festival. Andrew has played in master-classes with Gary Ryan, Chris Stell (Eden-Stell Duo), David Tanenbaum and Dale Kavanagh. In 2007, Andrew attended the Iserlohn International Guitar Symposium, Germany where he performed in master-classes with Roland Dyens, Bruce Holzman and John Dearman (Los Angeles Guitar Quartet).
During his time as an undergraduate at the RNCM, Andrew was one of the most sought after guitarists for solo and chamber recitals (in duo with flute and cello), performing throughout the North West and in many other parts of the UK. Andrew has extensive pit orchestra experience and has played the demanding classical and electric guitar parts in Les Misérables. In 2007, he gave the world premiere performance of Brett Dean's Three Caprichos after Goya having worked with the composer and in June 2008, Andrew gave a European premiere performance of Steve Mackey's Jango for four guitars and marimba.
Andrew's future plans include a continued series of recitals throughout the UK as soloist and chamber musician and he is also planning the release of his debut solo CD.
