Name: Clive Carroll

From: UK

Style: Acoustic Guitar


Clive Carroll began his musical journey as a child, in Essex, playing banjo in the family band. Soon, he was balancing his affinity for Slayer with the music of Tarrega, and traversing the worlds of soul, pop, funk, and traditional Irish music. This curiosity would become one of his strengths.


By the time he had earned a 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar at Trinity College, London, Carroll had written an album's worth of solo acoustic guitar music; and a chance meeting with guitar legend John Renbourn proved the catalyst for his debut album – hailed by Renbourn – and the pair toured North America and Europe together.


Now a world-leader in the acoustic guitar world, Carroll regularly tours with musicians such as Tommy Emmanuel, and he even counts Madonna among his fans!


To date, Clive Carroll has released four solo albums. He has also written music for television and film, most notably composing the music for the film “Driving Lessons”, featuring Julie Walters and Rupert Grint of Harry Potter fame.


Charismatic Clive Carroll is bound to produce one of the top shows of Hellys 2020 – make sure you are there!
