We’re absolutely stoked to be putting on the obscenely talented percussive fingerstyle guitarist Becky Langan Music, headlining the opening gig of this run, back from her planned January trip across to Anaheim, California to perform at NAMM Show representing Tonewood-Amp and Mayson Guitars USA.
Born in Rochdale, England (1992), Becky Langan is a percussive fingerstyle guitarist who employs a combination of extended techniques that explore the outermost reaches of the acoustic guitar. With over 13 years playing experience, Becky unleashes her creativity by performing incredibly complex instrumental acoustic guitar compositions at concerts around the UK. Having attended numerous master classes from her main inspirations, Becky employs the use of unique alternative tunings, two-handed tapping, percussive tempos and natural harmonic melodies drawn from her inspirations Andy McKee, Jon Gomm, Maneli Jamal and Thomas Leeb. To this day, Becky has approximately 5000 online YouTube subscribers, and her channel has rapidly grown an appreciative audience from all over the world.
Becky was a semi-finalist in Guitar Star 2016 (Series 2) which is aired on Sky Arts. Throughout this competition, she received mentor sessions from many iconic musicians, including; Tony Iommi, George Benson, Wilko Johnson, Jon Gomm and Preston Reed.
Becky has local links in her own range of Newtone Strings, so it’s an honour to have her back down this way nearer to her string related second home!
In support will be local Indie geniuses Reqs.
Quietly confident, Reqs have built a strong local following around Derby and Nottingham for their pristine sound with professional consistency in performance and execution. They’ve also featured on BBC Introducing… East Midlands.
