Book Gordon Giltrap

Private Concerts

Private Concerts

During his 40 year career, Gordon has played in pretty much every kind of venue in the UK from  the grandeur of Birmingham's Symphony Hall to tiny, out of the way village halls. He enjoys performing in all types of venues and particularly loves the challenge that the smaller venues present where the front rows of the audience are 'up close and intimate'.

This is where YOU come in. If you would like Gordon to perform a private concert especially for you and your friends in your home (or at a venue of your choice) then call or email Sue Holton ( details below.)

Afterwards, people get to interact with someone they would probably never get to meet in such an intimate setting. Photos are taken, memories shared, CD's autographed, and often lifelong friends are made. Gordon loves it because he gets to meet people who, in many cases, have been listening to his music for years, coming to see him in large venues like theatres, always having to see him from "out in the audience," and only getting to interact with him on a personal level for a couple of minutes after the show. The private concert puts the power back into the hands of the individual fans. Now, you get to choose the venue and the artist comes to you. Private concerts are the future of intimate performances.

We do need to make it clear though that these concerts are not for functions but are for listening audiences to enjoy the fun and, of course, the outstanding guitar playing that everyone has to come to expect from a Gordon Giltrap concert.

Hi Gordon,

Just wanted to publicly thank you for the concert you did for Sue and my 25th Wedding Anniversary. All our friends were mesmerised by your playing and enjoyed the banter. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting you and Hilary. To all those out there who are wondering whether to book Gordon for a private concert......Go for it!!!

Thank you once again, you made our evening a very memorable one.
Kind regards

As my 50th birthday was fast approaching we wanted to provide a party for all our close friends and family. My wife, Anne, asked what would be my ideal party. Having been a fan of Gordon's for twenty or so years I thought it would be great to have him play at my party.  

We contacted Sue Holton, who was charming and most helpful. The date was arranged and the venue was our local pub/restaurant that provides great Thai food.

Gordon was brilliant from the moment we met ! Our guests were an eclectic mix of young and old. Gordon provided the perfect balance of music and (legendary !!) stories. Everyone was entranced. All our guests stayed until the end. Gordon was most generous with his time, signatures and posing for photographs.

The evening concluded with a cunning test from Gordon….. After we had helped pack his car (I always had a secret desire to be a roadie !) he returned rather quickly, with a flat tyre. I am pleased to say that several of us set to and Gordon was soon on his way.

In conclusion, the party was brilliant. We will all remember it fondly, our enjoyment was enhanced by Gordon and Hilary sharing it with us.  

Many, many thanks to Gordon and Hilary

Gordon, thank you SO much for making our birthday celebrations something we will never forget. Personally, it was the best birthday I have ever had, superb music, much humour and just great fun. I just want another special occasion now, so we can have you back again!!

It was quite simply the best night ever….

With love and many thanks.
