Award-winning guitarist Martin Taylor is celebrating his 60th birthday and 45 years as a touring artist and plays The Stables next week.

Widely considered as the world’s foremost exponent of solo jazz and finger style guitar, Taylor’s high-profile fans include Jeff Beck, Jamie Cullum, Pat Metheny, Bill Wyman and Sir Michael Parkinson.

He has collaborated with a range of musicians including George Harrison and Jamie Cullum, released more than 100 albums and has been awarded two honorary doctorates for the guitar.

Taylor is greatly influenced by the work of Django Reinhardt - he toured and performed with Django’s musical partner Stéphane Grappelli for 11 years.

In 2012, Guy Barker translated themes created by Taylor into an orchestral suite, The Spirit Of Django, that was performed at the BBC Proms.

Martin Taylor headlines the Wavendon venue on Tuesday, October 25.

Tickets cost £18.50 before fees. For more information www.stables.org
