Clive Carroll and Chris Quinn


Clive Carroll is recognised as one of the outstanding acoustic guitarists of his – or indeed any other – generation.

He made his performing debut at the age of six, playing a home-made cut-down banjo with the family show band in Essex. There followed a musical education that culminated in a first-class degree in Guitar and Composition from Trinity College, and umpteen prizes and awards, including the prestigious Ivor Mairants Award. Since then he has toured extensively and recorded with everyone who’s anyone in the guitar world including many international tours with Tommy Emmanuel. 

His technique is flawless, his compositions are complex and sophisticated, while maintaining a strong melodic drive. He has the rare ability to move seamlessly and authentically between genres, from Irish airs to Dowland and Django, or from Bach to Deep ‘N Dirty Delta Blues.

No stranger to Theatre on Steps having appeared here over the years with The Robin Nolan Trio, Paulus Schäfer, Hickman & Quinn, and as a solo artist, Chris Quinn has been receiving glowing reviews in the music press for his latest solo release, Across The Divide. Maverick Magazines called him "A Master of the Acoustic Guitar and a Quality Songwriter". Songlines wrote "World class - Constant international touring over the last decade including a stint opening for the Jools Holland Orchestra as well as playing guitar for some of the worlds leading gypsy jazz guitarists has given this guitarist and vocalist an enviable confidence". 

As well as a fast growing reputation for his his own critically acclaimed songs, Chris' live shows often cover many styles, from traditional folk guitar to mean delta blues, to lighting fast bluegrass picking and gypsy jazz. 

Expect solo spots from both Clive and Chris as well as some serious guitar dueling, definitely one for the guitar lovers!!
