Bambos has sent this YouTube link to SelfTaughtGirl who has uploaded lots of episodes of ‘The Classical Guitar’ programme from the 80s.


Keith has asked us if we’d like to do our own concert (perhaps being joined by another musical group?).
We did have a successful one earlier this year.
This would be a fairly informal event - probably held in the Meeting Room, Heslington.
Any suggestions and ideas most welcomed - for instance, any of you like to do a duet or trio?

You can email Keith here.

This is Annie Budash again from I am following up regarding Jason Vieaux’s offer for your society.

Grammy award-winning Jason Vieaux has recorded an exhaustive online curriculum and teaches players around the world through “Video Exchange Learning” at

We’d like to offer your members access to three free video lessons and samples of Video Exchanges® as well as a discount on a membership to Jason’s Classical Guitar course.

They would not only have the opportunity to learn proper techniques and important classical guitar repertoire from the online recorded lessons, but they also have the option to submit videos of themselves to Jason, performing whatever piece they may be working on.

Getting instruction and individual feedback from Jason can prove difficult otherwise, but he particularly wants to support and be of value to classical guitar societies everywhere.

Your members can get his free lessons here:

They can use JASON20 to receive 20% off on any 3, 6 or 12-month membership to Classical Guitar with Jason Vieaux at:

and from Michael Poll’s agent …

Dear Andrew,
and from Michael Poll’s agent …
I represent the internationally acclaimed guitar virtuoso, Michael Poll and I am writing to enquire if you would consider hosting a concert for his 7 string Bach programme which we believe would be perfect for the Society.

Michael has performed across the UK, the US, and South America, where he has earned praise for his refined and patrician interpretations. His debut album: Bach for 7-string guitar, which we are suggesting as an ideal programme for you, has garnered over 750k streams in the few months since its release, and has several hundred monthly listeners across the UK.

Links to his work are available on his website, You can also hear him performing the Gigue from Bach’s Suite in E Major BWV1006a via this link:

I would also be delighted to send you a copy of his CD if you would like to hear more.

If it is convenient for you, we are currently looking at dates around mid-February as Michael will be in the vicinity for a performance at Lancaster Arts on Thursday 27 Feb 2020.

I hope you have enjoyed hearing about Michael and his unique offering. Please don't hesitate to get in touch by email or phone if this is something you would like to discuss further. It would be wonderful if we could make this work.

Very best wishes,

Margaret Pinder
