Lunchtime Recital with

JAMES GIRLING - Classical jazz guitarist

James is a twenty-one-year-old guitarist at the Royal Northern College of Music, where he is continuing as a postgraduate student having achieved the BMus(Hons) with first class honours on the RNCM’s Accelerated Pathway. His instrumental tutor at the RNCM is internationally renowned classical guitarist Craig Ogden, in addition to which James studies jazz with pianist Dan Whieldon.

As the guitarist in the RNCM Big Band, James has performed alongside eminent British jazz musicians including Tim Garland, Julian Joseph, Nikki Iles, Tina May and Mark Nightingale, and was broadcast live on Radio 3’s ‘In Tune’ programme. His own contemporary jazz quintet - artephis, the Jazz North Introduces artist 2015-16 - are described by jazz guitarist Mike Walker (The Impossible Gentlemen) as having ‘an organic, collectively individual sound’. Awarded the Sir John Manduell Prize in support of their forthcoming debut album, artephis have already performed to capacity audiences at the major jazz festivals across the North, as well as at the Brecon Jazz Festival and Bridgewater Hall. James is artephis’ principal composer, and his composition ‘Chagrin’ is featured on the first ever CD of selected performers at the Marsden Jazz Festival.

James plays a 2013 Paul Sheridan classical guitar, and Gibson 339 and Gretsch Historic Series jazz guitars.
