Irish Guitarist Manus Noble graduated from the Royal College of Music in 2010 with 1st class honours and also from the Royal Academy of Music in 2012, where he was awarded a distinction for his Masters in Performance. He was given Performance Awards by the Musicians Benevolent Fund, Countess of Munster and Ian Flemming Trust, and was accepted onto the Park Lane Group Concert Series at the Purcell Room. He won first prize in the Royal College of Music Guitar and Ivor Mairants Guitar Competitions.

Noble is in high demand as a performer, giving recitals and masterclasses at festivals such as West Dean, Cheltenham Guitar Festival, Bath Guitar Festival and London International Guitar Festival. Recent performances include solo recitals at Kings Place, Sage Gateshead and Bridgewater Hall. As well as writing for the instrument himself, Noble has developed a certain flair and passion for modern techniques and repertoire.

This diverse and evocative programme will include pieces by Roland Dyens, Leo Brouwer, Arvo Pärt and Manus Noble, set alongside traditional Celtic music.
