An intimate concert by the prolific London guitarist.

Growing up in a small town in the periphery of London, guitar and piano were a big part of Charlie Cunningham's life. After a few years gigging and finding his feet in Oxford he left for Seville and ended up staying for two years. It was here he explored the different attitudes towards the guitar, and developed a fresh technique that was a catalyst for his creativity.

Taking the percussive qualities of flamenco, his playing became sharp enough to craft songs laden with delicate flourishes, intricate melodic turns, and moments of stark introspection. His work continues to be both expansive and intimate.

“I guess the reason that it took so long for me to put something out was that I couldn't play the way I wanted to play” he explains. “I knew how I wanted it to be, but I just couldn't do it. I gave myself quite a tough time.” - Charlie Cunningham
