Gordon Giltrap Signed Prints

Gordon Giltrap is a British virtuoso acoustic and electric
guitarist and composer, whose musical styles span multiple genres
- folk, blues, folk-rock, pop, classical and rock. Gordon Giltrap
was born in 1948 and started to learn the guitar at age 12. His
musical career started to take off in the 1960s, playing live in
London in the burgeoning folk scene, alongside contemporaries
such as Bert Jansch (who greatly influenced the young guitarist),
John Renbourn and Mike Oldfield. At age 18 he signed to
Transatlantic Records and released a couple of albums. While
popular on the folk and university circuit, the 1970s marked a
turning point and much greater recognition. At this time Gordon
started to concentrate on more purely instrumental pieces, and in
1976 released the album Visionary, based on the art and poetry of
William Blake. The success of this album prompted Gordon to give
up the singer/songwriter approach and form the Gordon Giltrap
Band, which toured extensively in the UK at that time. A follow-
up album, Perilous Journey, consolidated his success, being named
at one of the best albums of 1977 by The Sunday Times. A single
taken from the album, Heartsong, received extensive airplay and
became a top twenty hit. The track was later used as the
signature tune of the BBC TV series Holiday. The album Fear of
the Dark was released in 1978. In the 1990s, Gordon played a key
role in Cliff Richard's Heathcliffe musical, playing the musical
narrator. He also composed a number of pieces for the show.
