PIG PROMOTIONS

managing John O'Connell

"Throughout the evening, numerous guests (some that I'd never met) confessed to being bedroom guitarists and loved it. Cavatina in particular was mentioned on more than a few occasions."

Graham Shennan, Bromorough
 

 
"John produces the best 'raw' rendition around of Classical Gas, and then just walks off like it was a stroll in the park - sheer class"

Lynden Brain


Having studied classical guitar with Stan Yates at the age of 28, John has continued to charm audiences by masterfully swapping

between steel and nylon string guitars.

Faithful to his craft he has introduced many music

lovers to an array of classical works by cleverly

infusing these with more contemporary pieces. A

regular performer at Liverpool's Anglican and

Metropolitan Cathedrals and at the International Guitar

Festival of Great Britain; his classical performances have

not gone unnoticed beyond Merseyside with over 1

million views on his youtube channel where his

performances, in particular ... have been enjoyed,

discussed and even debated!
