We are delighted to welcome Laura Snowden to the Festival for a superb classical concert.
Award winning classical guitarist and composer Laura was handpicked by Julian Bream to give a Bream trust concert at Wigmore Hall, and was the first guitarist to graduate from the prestigious Yehudi Menuhin School, where guitar tuition was made possible by a donation from the Rolling Stones.
As a composer, her compositions have been performed at Wigmore Hall and in Italy, Spain, Sweden, Japan and Hong Kong. Laura’s song ‘ Live Free’ for the charity, Voices for Hospices, was performed at over 300 simultaneous concerts in 60 countries, and her folk ensemble Tir Eolas was invited by guitarist John Williams to perform at Shakespeare’s Globe.
