Internationally acclaimed acoustic guitarist Gordon Giltrap is set to play at a north Norfolk village hall.

Giltrap, who has been on the music scene since the 1960s and has influenced everyone from Deep Purple's Richie Blackmore to Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin, will perform in Sharrington on Saturday, August 24.

Pete Townshend is such a fan he got Giltrap to join in a recording session for The Who's next album, which is due for release later this year.

He was most famous in the 1970s when he toured extensively with the Gordon Giltrap Band and released albums such as Visionary and Perilous Journey from which his greatest hit Heartsong was taken.

Gig-goers will also get the chance to meet Giltrap after the show to get their treasured old vinyl albums and CDs signed.
