NICK HOOPER

Although Nick Hooper is better known as a film-music composer, he started his musical career as a guitarist, studying at The Royal College of Music, and receiving tuition from John Williams and others.

In the late 70s he toured widely under the auspices of Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now, and also The British Council. In the 1980s Nick released a folk album Turning Tables with Chris Leslie, and a solo album of music by J S Bach which was critically acclaimed, comparing his playing to that of John Williams and Andres Segovia.

Decades later, after a successful film music career, scoring two Harry potter films and winning many awards, Nick has returned to his first love – the guitar. He joined forces with his wife Judith to form the duo Henderson:Hooper, started a folk series which has now become ‘Pop-up Folk’, and helped form the Dellywellyboot Band. A couple of years ago Nick recorded an album of mainly Irish music Six Strings, and it was this that caused him to meet Gordon Giltrap: Gordon generously helped him to get his new Fylde guitar – a copy of Gordon’s.

Of Six Strings: ‘It’s a complete joy. It’s going to be one of those albums that I play a lot, because it’s got that kind of calm spaciousness about it too, which is absolutely brilliant. Yeah, love it!’ Chris Leslie

Gordon is delighted to have the wonderful Carrie Martin as his special guest for this show.

For more information about Carrie, please visit her website http://www.carriemartin.co.uk

The Countess of Huntingdon's Hall was built as a chapel in 1773 by the very formidable Selina, Countess of Huntingdon. She was the Founder of the Calvinistic/Methodist group known as the Countess of Huntingdon' Connexion. The Chapel prospered until the second half of this century when congregations declined. The last service was held here in 1976.

By this time the building was in a deplorable state of repair, and there was a move to demolish it. However, a determined group of Worcester people fought to prevent this happening and, after ten years during which nearly £1 million was raised, the unique features of the chapel were repaired and restored to what you see today.

Many of the original pews have been retained with the addition of cushion, a number of which have needlework covers made by Worcestershire W.I. members. The pulpit was the centrepoint of the Chapel, and it's occupant was visible from all seats in the building. Nowadays the focus is on the stage, several feet lower, which is why there are seats in the gallery known to us as "listening seats". Graceful curved staircases lead up to the pulpit, which is flanked by two splendid eagle lecterns. The original communion rail is still in place beneath the stage. The organ is a very fine one, built by John Nicholson of Worcester in 1840.

Our beautiful Hall, the only one of its kind in the country, is a Grade II listed building. The poet John Betjeman visited it, and described it as being "unique and irreplaceable...a Georgian gem

Acoustic Heaven in Hull. Four acts at only £17.50 per ticket.

Artists at this event:

Gordon Giltrap with special guests Carrie Martin, Blair Dunlop and Sam Arkut.

Support Acts

Carrie Martin
Carrie Martin, singer/songwriter/guitarist from Hull, returned to music after a 20yr break encouraged by none other than the noted acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap. She cites her meeting him as the most important thing that has happened to her in her musical career. Her guitar playing attracted sufficient attention for her to be recruited as an endorsee by 'Vintage' guitars and Carrie is now also a 'Fylde' guitar player. Influenced by Eva Cassidy and Ann Wilson from Heart, her writing and performing style nevertheless defies categorisation. Her last album, "What If" featured guest appearances from Gordon Giltrap, Oliver Wakeman and Ric Sanders and had glowing reviews from all quarters, including Acoustic mag, Rock n’ Reel and Classic Rock Society.

A pleasing purity in her vocals.” - Trevor Raggett, R2 Magazine


Blair Dunlop
Blair Dunlop, the award-winning British singer, songwriter and guitarist, has now released 3 albums 2 ep’s and toured widely around the globe. All of this in a short 4-year career is astounding alone but what sets Blair apart from his peers is the lyrical and musical maturity with which he writes.


Sam Arkut
Sam Arkut is a singer, songwriter and acoustic finger-style guitarist from Anlaby in East Riding of Yorkshire, near Hull. Widely regarded as an exceptional musician, Sam is gaining a strong following due to his beautifully crafted songs and his playing style, combining tapping, harmonics and playing percussion in a unique way to make his songs come to life.
