Neil Smith

Neil Smith playing guitar
Neil Smith started his musical studies at an early age, but trained as a scientist. In his teenage years he was active as a rock and jazz musician before devoting himself to the study of the classical guitar. After study in London with John Duarte and Julian Byzantine, he was awarded a Scott Scholarship to study in Canada in 1975 with Alirio Diaz and Leo Brouwer, and that year established himself as one of Britain's most prominent guitarists. After his Wigmore Hall debut in 1975, concerts followed in Norway, Switzerland and Holland, and he has since built up a following all over the world. In 2000 he was honoured to perform Rodrigo's Concerto de Aranjuez at Glamis Castle for the l00th birthday celebrations for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother. His CDs include a recital of the music of John Duarte and a survey of Latin-American guitar music.
