Duncan Howlett plays solo fingerstyle, nylon string guitar in a variety of sets lasting up to 3 hours. He plays both original arrangements & his own compositions.

Growing up Duncan Howlett has accumulated many musical achievements/experiences, such as: playing in a youth guitar ensemble and winning 1st place in Colchester’s rotary music festival (under 14s guitarist). He has been gigging since the year 2000 and starting out playing at weddings and in local restaurants. He studied at the Colchester Institute, gaining a diploma in Classical performance and then moved to Brighton and attended the Brighton Institute of Modern Music. He focussed on electric guitar music of all genres, and band playing. All of these experiences have enabled Duncan to create a unique style to his performances blending techniques often found in classical, jazz, funk, contemporary, blues, country and folk music.

In 2006 he became the host of The Akoustic Karma Lounge, otherwise known as AKL Brighton, an ecelctic weekly acoustic night feauturing the cream of Brighton’s acoustic scene. As well as hosting the night he would also open the show with his own acoustic compositions. Since then Duncan Howlett Guitarist has performed at many gig nights and some impressive venues including the very peak of the Gherkin, one of the most famous buildings in the London skyline.
