Chris Quinn has received countless glowing reviews in the music press for his solo releases and live performances. Maverick Magazine called him "A master of the acoustic guitar and a quality songwriter". 


With roots in both England and Scotland and spending part of his early career touring across the USA; his own songs are heavily influenced by British, Celtic and American traditional music.  Live you can also expect masterful finger-style delta blues, bluegrass and swinging jazz guitar and some of the finest acoustic guitar playing you've ever heard!  

For over a decade Chris has regularly performed with some of the world's most celebrated guitarists: Stochelo Rosenberg, Clive Carroll and Robin Nolan to name a few. This brought Chris to the attention of the wider guitar industry leading to endorsement deals with AER amps and Steve Toon guitars.

Also a passionate educator, Chris regularly host's pre concert workshops and masterclasses as well as regular residential retreats. The Guardian recently wrote "Acoustic guitar player Chris Quinn has, for the past decade, been transforming Shrewsbury into the UK’s hub for roots music, with retreats focusing on folk, delta blues and Gypsy jazz..."

He teaches the acoustic guitar course at the annual IGF Summer School in Bath alongside Guitar Techniques and Guitarist Magazine editors and runs the popular online guitar academy with students in over 25 countries.
