ABOUT ME

Duncan Howlett is a Brighton based solo fingerstyle guitarist who plays a wide variety of instrumental arrangements of well known songs, ranging from 1950s classics to modern day chart hits. As a polished, professional, self contained act, Duncan adds the perfect ambiance to any event, including weddings, corporate, parties and functions. His repertoire covers many genres and with an inexhaustible knowledge of music, new and old, he can provide a bespoke combination of classical and contemporary styles. With so much variety to his repertoire he really can provide something for everyone. In addition to his fingerstyle arrangements, Duncan also used a loop pedal which enables him to make fuller sounding, upbeat tracks and improvisations.

He has a vast experience in the the music industry as a performer, teacher, composer and session musician. He has played at some of the best wedding venues in the country, as well as in some of the UK's most iconic buildings including London's Gherkin and O2 arena. He also has experience playing abroad, including contracts with award winning cruise liners. As well as playing solo, Duncan has worked with some of the best bands in the South and has supported some legendary artists including the Brand New Heavies and Californian Funk masters Breakestra.

Duncan uses top quality equipment to provide the best sound and has a variety of different set ups for all audience sizes. All of his equipment is PAT tested, and he has Public Liability Insurance. He is always willing to personalise his sets around your requirements and loves to learn special requests. He also performs as part of an acoustic duo so can provide a vocalist when requested. Based in the South-East, Duncan can travel UK wide and internationally on request.

Booked Duncan Howlett Guitarist for a Company Party
5.0   Verified review

Duncan played beautifully for two hours during a drinks reception and dinner. His music was varied and enjoyed by all with great feed back coming from our attendees. He was professional, helpful and truly focused on delivering what we needed for the event, certainly someone I would look to work with again.
