Full Description
Multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed UK fingerstyle singer-songwriter Jon Hart blends modern percussive fingerstyle guitar with emotive/gritty vocals and songwriting to create an immersive one-man acoustic experience. Although his technical abilities could be compared to the likes of Jon Gomm and Newton Faulkner, he offers something distinctive in this small pool of virtuoso acoustic guitarist-singers. The sole purpose of all Jon's compositions and arrangements is to emulate them live. He does this with just one acoustic guitar and sometimes a vocal harmony pedal, without the use of a loop pedal. Watch the showreel for a taster! “Raises the bar to impressive heights” David Sinclair – Rock and Pop Critic for The Times “Stand out performances dripping with atmosphere” Acoustic Magazine “Amazing” Genevieve Tudor’s Sunday Folk, BBC “A masterful guitar player” Guitar World

The 5* reviews are well deserved!
We had the pleasure of Jon doing 2X 45min sets at our wedding March 2nd 2019 in between the ceremony & dinner- he’s super friendly, incredibly talented and created the perfect atmosphere. Would recommend him to anyone as would all of our guests who were raving about him the rest of the day. Russell & Julia

Wedding set with personal song
Recently had jh play at our wedding and he was amazing. He did a cover of a song not within his usual set list for our first dance and absolutely nailed it. Also his set list is so varied we managed to find at least 1 song all pf our guests liked. Would highley recommend for any party or event.

Exceptional talent!
We viewed dozens of musicians when looking to book a live act for our wedding, but as soon as we saw a video of Jon performing it was a no-brainer decision! His unique style set him head and shoulders above the rest, and he certainly delivered on our big day! Learning a song outside his repertoire to perform as part of his set for us was an exceptional and welcome touch. He was an absolute pleasure to deal with and would advise anyone looking for a live musician to look no further!

What about your business are you most proud of?

After playing in many bands/acts where I had to follow songs note for note. I'm proud of creating an versatile solo act where I can combine fingerstyle guitar, vocal harmony, beatboxing and looping. My compact setup allows me to move around and deliver the same performance inside and outside.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

As a husband and wedding supplier, I'd say.....take some time away from the wedding planning to remember why you fell in love in the first place.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

During a wedding breakfast a photographer transferred a selection of photos to a digital collage frame and presented it to the couple and family members. He was able to move around the photos and add new ones there and then.
