He brings together an evening of virtuosic and romantic solo guitar music featuring Agua e Vihno by Gismonti and the ubercool African-inspired Benga Beat by Gary Ryan and is joined by Philippa Mo, on violin, for the sizzling Histoire du tango by Piazzolla.

Tuned in to Shortwave Nights is a new classical branch to the thriving Tuned In London programme of world and folk music that is put together by Eleanor Thorn and has been running in Rotherhithe for more than six years. She recently played a stunning concert with her violin duo partner Harriet Mackenzie in St Mary's Church Rotherhithe in early December 2017.

Shortwave Cafe is a new arts hub in the Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey and offers a lovely open space with fantastic exhibitions on its walls, a bar serving drinks and pizzas, and comfy tables and chairs. An informal, cosy, candlelit, non-classical space to which we are bringing world-class classical music. It is a 5 minute walk from Bermondsey Tube Station (on the Jubilee line). Come and join us! This will be the second in the series.
