booked Jamie Duncan for their Wedding in Cheshire November 2021

“Jamie was brilliant from start to finish. We had a last minute cancellation due to Covid of our initial booking and we were so happy to find Jamie! He set the tone for the whole day, was so lovely with all of our guests and made everything feel so magical. Best of all, with only 24 hours notice he learnt a song for us! Thank you so much!”

Clients have often commented on Jamie's amazing ability to effortlessly maintain his technical ability while performing. 

Whether it is accompanying background music or an exciting main stage performance, Jamie can read the room and audience and deliver exactly what the environment and most importantly what the client needs to have a special event.

Jamie has worked extensively in and around Manchester at live gigs. The main reception at these events has always been one of awe and excitement to see percussive guitar live. Jamie has gained merit from fellow accomplished acoustic guitarists, with acoustic guitar virtuoso Jon Gomm pinpointing Jamie’s style as ‘pure adrenaline, both visceral and exciting’; whilst Alex Anderson also shares his admiration; ‘with his impressive blend of technique and melodic sensibilities, Jamie is well on his way to becoming a player to notice in the finger style world.

Previously Jamie has accompanied and supported artist George the Poet as a session guitarist playing for B Franklin on his UK tour; performing at sold-out venues from Glasgow O2 to The Everyman Cinema in London. Following the UK tour, Jamie has also featured on Sofar Sessions in London, as well as playing as a session musician for SB TV.
