An exceptional acoustic guitarist and arranger, with a hugely diverse repertoire, Keith Hinchliffe received international acclaim for his much-broadcast 1994 album Carolan's Dream, and his second CD Islands was described by BBC Roots presenter Andy Kershaw as "an excellent album by a wonderful guitar player." Best known for his haunting arrangements of Celtic music, Keith has also released Red Scarf Smiler, a much more eclectic CD including Elizabethan lute works, blues, Latin American pieces, and eight original compositions. Ancient Music (2011) is a collection of Renaissance, Baroque, and early Irish pieces including works by Dowland, Purcell, and Bach. A Wee Dram (2018) is another purely Celtic collection. American Beauty (2023, forthcoming) features jazz and ragtime standards. A highly-experienced solo performer and a former member of the Albion Band, Keith is also the author of several guitar music books.
