Description

Rising star guitarist and ex-Canberran Andrew Blanch performs works with piano accompaniment, having just recently returned from Spain where he was an invited artist at the Festival Guitarra Maestro Joaquin Rodrigo, held in Quartell, Spain.


Andrew Blanch has been making a splash in recent years with frequent concerts, a slew of competition prizes and widespread success of his debut CD Spanish Guitar Music. Soundboard Magazine (USA) called Spanish Guitar Music "one of the best debut albums I've ever heard", Limelight Magazine (Australia) gave it 4 stars praising his "unique gifts" and the Melbourne Guitar Foundation has declared Andrew "one of Australia's foremost classical guitarists”.

Growing up on the beaches of Sydney's east, Andrew left for Canberra at the age of 18 to study with renowned guitarist Timothy Kain. After more than five years under Kain's mentorship, Andrew took to the road, giving concerts around the country and abroad including recitals in Paris, London, Washington DC and a concerto performance with the San Francisco Conservatory of Music Alumni Orchestra. He excelled on the competition circuit with over ten major prizes including First Place in both the Melbourne International Guitar Competition (2016) and the Whitworth-Roach Classical Music Competition (2015).

Andrew is now enjoying life in Sydney's north, which he uses as a base between domestic and international touring. Andrew is currently working on an exciting collaboration of new arrangements for voice and two guitars with Australia’s premier baritone José Carbó and fellow guitarist Ariel Nurhadi.
