Hugh Buckley may be among the more unassuming guitarists on the Irish scene, but his resume of international associations speaks volumes for the esteem in which he’s held elsewhere.
This engaging and creative soloist, who is a self-taught player has worked with Georgie Fame, Peter Bernstein, Scott Hamilton, Peter Washington and his late and dear friend, pianist James Williams. Soul and gospel nuances are increasingly to the fore
He has performed throughout Europe, the U.S and South America, has a number of acclaimed jazz albums to his name. Hugh Buckley was recently the subject of an hour long TV documentary, “The Living Bridge -A Family Affair” (along with his two saxophone playing cousins Richie and Michael Buckley) which featured all original music by all three musicians.
Hugh is producer, arranger and guitarist on the legendary Ronnie Drews 2008 platinum selling cd release The Last Session – A Fond Farewell.
