Fine mezzo & guitarist perform 'Travels with a Guitar'

Venue: St. Michael and All Angels, Spennithorne

The talented young mezzo-soprano and brilliant young guitarist will perform an intimate programme entitled ‘Travels with a Guitar’ - an entertaining selection of songs and solo guitar pieces from Elizabethan ballads and love songs to fiery Brazilian Bossa Nova.

Praised by The Guardian for her "irrepressible sense of drama and unmissable, urgent musicality", Australian mezzo soprano Lotte Betts-Dean is a versatile and dynamic concert artist whose performance experience encompasses contemporary repertoire, early music, art song, opera, experimental music and non-classical collaborations.

Dimitris Soukaras is one of the most talented Greek guitarists of his generation. A graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, he is a winner of the International Guitar Foundation’s Young Artists Platform and was a EuroStrings Artist in 2018/19. In October 2021 Dimitris released his latest album ‘Roots: 21st century Greek music for guitar’ on the Naxos label, also featuring Lotte.
