On the 3rd December we will welcome Guthrie Govan to give an exclusive masterclass to students of the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance and a limited number of public guests at the Tricycle Cinema in Kilburn.
Guthrie is arguably the most exciting and significant new guitarist to emerge in the virtuosic rock/fusion guitar scene in many years. He is a brilliant artist who is at home in a variety of musical genres and styles. Guthrie has recorded and toured with acts ranging all the way from melodic rock (Asia) to grime (Dizzee Rascal) and was recently seen onstage at the Hans Zimmer Revealed concerts, sharing guitar duties with Johnny Marr and incorporating instruments ranging from banjo to fretless electric guitar. His guitar and bass work for Replay Heaven (a sample recreation company) has graced hit singles by the likes of Gotye, The Sugababes, Cee Lo Green and Tinie Tempah. He is currently touring and recording extensively with (Porcupine Tree frontman) Steven Wilson and a rock-fusion power trio called The Aristocrats.
Whilst the masterclass is primarily a free event for current Institute students, the Institute is also opening the event up for alumni, who can purchase tickets for £5 from the school reception. A limited number of public tickets are available from the Tricycle, online or by calling the Box Office on 020 7328 1000.
