SB ACOUSTIC PRESENTS: Clive Carroll


If you saw Clive Carroll with us in 2018, you know that he’s not only a an phenominal guitarist, but put out an incredible effort to fly through a blizzard to get here and put on a fantastic show.

His masterful compositions, coupled with his versatility and unparalleled technical virtuosity, have rendered him one of today’s most admired and respected guitarists. When I asked Tommy Emmanuel who was the next great guitar player, he immediately said "Clive Carroll".

Born in England, Clive's breadth of musical curiosity was to become one of his strengths; even as a child Clive was as comfortable accompanying a group of folk singers as he was jamming along to Nirvana or performing standards with the Essex Youth Orchestra. Clive earned his 1st Class Honours Degree in Composition and Guitar from the famed Trinity College of Music in London, balancing his classical work with forays into the world of the steel string guitar with an album’s worth of solo acoustic music. A chance meeting with English guitar legend John Renbourn proved the catalyst for Clive’s debut album, “Sixth Sense”, which Renbourn deemed “a milestone in the journey of the steel-string guitar”.

Clive has established himself as one of the world’s premier acoustic guitar players. He has toured across Europe, Australia, the Middle East and North America, garnering praise for his sublime performances of everything from 16th and 17th century lute music to Jazz standards, Blues, Irish reels and his own groundbreaking compositions.
