SAMUEL MOORE: Hailed as “a fantastic flamenco guitarist” (BBC Radio 3) and honoured as a First Category prizewinner in the 2023 Manhattan International Music Competition, Samuel Moore is fast establishing himself as one of the leading flamenco musicians of his generation. Since 2007 he has performed in venues across the UK, Europe, and North America. Solo performance highlights include prestigious concert halls such as New York’s Carnegie Hall and intimate venues such as Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London.

Samuel is one of the few guitarists worldwide to continue the tradition of presenting solo flamenco concerts. His recitals showcase beautifully crafted flamenco guitar sets that bring to life the rich colours, rhythms, and sounds of Andalucía. His extensive solo repertoire encompasses traditional flamenco forms, original compositions, and masterworks written by flamenco legends such as Ramón Montoya, Sabicas, and Paco de Lucía.

Samuel’s distinctive performance approach places a particular emphasis on talking to the audience. His explanations of repertoire offer illuminating and thought-provoking insights into the rich culture and history of flamenco. Through this, Samuel seeks to give his audiences a uniquely accessible and enriching concert experience, connecting them on a deep level to the music they’re hearing.

Samuel learnt his craft as a one-to-one student of the world-renowned flamenco guitarists Juan Martín and Grisha Goryachev. He has also attended workshops led by Paco Peña and Dennis Koster. Samuel is an alumnus of Leeds Conservatoire, class of 2013.
