An internationally-renowned acoustic roots guitarist, its Ian’s original arrangements of the classic standards that make him unique.
His influences are many and varied, and this comes across in his playing. The list is (possibly) endless but focuses on music from the US, whether that be straight blues or many of the other styles – Nashville, Western Swing or 20’s New Orleans Jazz played in Ragtime.
Living abroad from some time before returning to the UK, Lil’ Ian has completed three national solo Tours and performed at major festivals in New Zealand. He has performed extensively on New Zealand radio and TV.
