Classical guitarist Mills in concert

By Kevin Black in Events

Classical guitarist John Mills will be in concert in the music room of Foyle Riding in Red Lane on the outskirts of Limpsfield on June 17.

Foyle Riding is famous because of the recordings made by the BBC in the 1930s of cellist Beatrice Harrison playing accompanied by nightingales.

Kingston upon Thames born John Mills studied guitar first at the Spanish Guitar Centre, London, and later at the Royal College of Music under the professorship of John Williams.

He has performed in over 25 countries, including Japan, the USA, and Australia. He continues to perform internationally, as well as giving frequent master-classes, seminars and workshops.

As well as teaching and a solo performing career, John is also very active in the field of chamber music with duos consisting of guitar and violin, harpsichord, piano, voice, and of course music for two guitars with his wife Cobie Smit.

His concert at Foyle Riding starts at 6.30pm and the programme includes Bach, Haydn, Rutter, and Barrios.
