Louise Southwood’s guitar playing began at an early age with many competition successes and performances throughout the UK. At age twelve she began studying privately with the eminent guitarist Carlos Bonell. Carlos has been a major and lasting influence on her musical career.In 2000 she was awarded a Bachelor of Music (hons) degree at The Royal College of Music in London. Here, Louise worked with world class guitarists Carlos Bonell and Gary Ryan on both solo guitar and guitar accompaniment.
This was an intense performing period and involved collaborations with many other musicians as well as master classes with some of the world’s most renowned guitarists. Louise has performed in the UK, Australia, India, Bermuda, the USA and Canada. Performance engagements within the UK were highlighted by appearances at The Trinity Chapel in Cambridge, The National Gallery, Westminster Cathedral, and St. Martin in the Fields in London. Louise has spent the last seven years teaching and performing in Bermuda. Here she met the talented violinist David France and formed the ‘Southwood-France Duo’. They have performed regularly at The Bermuda International Guitar Festival and opened The Kodai Kanal International Guitar Festival 2009 in India. Douglas Lora of the acclaimed ‘Brazil Guitar Duo’ composed a piece ‘From Summer to Fall’ in dedication of the duo. Louise’s CDs, ‘Emergence’ and newly released ‘Chrysalis’ illustrate her varied instrumental techniques and musical interests, with a selection of favourite pieces, ancient and modern. They have enchanted a diverse audience around the world.
