The Artisans: an exciting new medieval and Renaissance band

The Artisans

Matthew Robinson (guest member)
(Voice, Oud)

Matthew plays a variety of plucked strings and has recently taken up the Oud which he has found useful for Medieval Iberian repertoire.

He obtained his Bmus(hons) 1st class from Birmingham Conservatoire and is now studying for an MMus postgraduate degree at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama enabled by the Adele Kramer-chappel fund.

Matthew has played as a solo guitarist for many festivals and societies throughout England but also enjoys working as a chamber musician. He frequently appears with virtuoso guitarist Eduardo Niebla and has toured with him throughout the U.K. and Europe.

He has sung with many accomplished choirs and often accompanies himself in concert. He has even found himself singing Micheal Buble with an orchestra and playing the lead in Pirates of Penzance.

Matthew loves cooking and has an ambition to own a cupcake shop!
