Gerry and his pedals in our performance space

Bowie’s guitarist @ the Rock School

Dublin born guitar legend Gerry Leonard (David Bowie, Suzanne Vega, Rufus Wainwright, Spookyghost) dropped in to give an inspiring guitar and industry workshop to music students in BCFE last week. Gerry performed tracks from his own back catalogue to a very enthusiastic audience, as well as some Bowie classics. He also gave students some background on his technical setup (pedals, pedals, pedals!). Gerry discussed his long and successful career in the music industry with his friend and collaborator, Hugh Buckley (our in house guitar tutor!) in front of the attentive live studio audience. Gerry is one of the many exciting industry guests to give music performance workshops in the college in recent times and we look forward to welcoming many more legends in the near future.Watch this space! Check out Gerry’s music and learn more about the great man himself . Also, check out information on the Contemporary Music Performance HND.
