Michael Watts is a guitarist based in Surrey UK. A previous recipient of the Acoustic Guitarist of the Year award Michael has shared a bill with some of the greatest instrumentalists in the world and is known for his onstage charisma, exquisite touch and the depth of feel and nuance in his playing and writing.
You may have seen Michael as the host of Luthier Stories - a series that has seen him travelling around the world to interview many of the world's greatest guitar makers.
Michael writes, records, and performs instrumental music for solo steel-string acoustic guitar. His debut album "VETIVER" is available here. The opening track Celandine was recently used on an award-winning short film.
Described as a "Gentleman Renegade" and an acknowledged expert in the field of the luthier-built guitar, Michael is regularly invited to give lectures and masterclasses, and demonstrate the work of guitar builders around the world. More often than not, he accepts.
When it comes to writing about himself in the third person Michael lacks stamina.
