Guitar Virtuoso John Etheridge at the Cheltenham Playhouse Theatre

Sunday 14 April 2013
The Playhouse Theatre, Bath Road

The Venue Jazz Club continues its thrilling program of events at The Cheltenham Playhouse on Sunday 14th April and are bringing in one of the country’s top jazz guitarists, John Etheridge to the theatre. John, rightly enjoys a glowing reputation throughout the jazz world and beyond and has been described by American legend Pat Metheny as, "One of the best guitarists in the world". He is a prodigiously gifted and creative player whose approach to music can only be described as 'eclectic' as he refuses to accommodate or even acknowledge artificial musical boundaries. John’s range is well illustrated by his years of touring and recording with the iconic violinist Stephane Grappelli while simultaneously doing likewise with the legendary jazz-fusion group, The Soft Machine. John is equally at home on acoustic and electric guitar and his willingness to engage with so many styles is matched by his ability to excel in any of them. He has played with John Williams, Yehudi Menuhin, Dizzie Gillespie, Herb Ellis, Mundell Lowe, Nigel Kennedy, Pat Metheny, Birelli Lagrene, Barney Kessel, Vic Juris and countless others. John will be appearing giving a unique up close and personal performance at The Cheltenham Playhouse.
