Five-time Guitar Champion

Edale Bluegrass Festival

“For Chris Moreton’s truly world class lead guitar – some of the best picking heard at Edale from anyone.”

British Bluegrass News

“Some hot picking by Chris Moreton… the best bluegrass guitarist in the country.”

The Independent

“The showpiece of Chris’ set was a rendition of Dixie Breakdown for which the judge sitting next to me marked as 10 out of 10 whilst I was mentally giving a mark of 15!”

Pat Chapelle

“Chris Moreton’s performance of Arrival of The Queen of Sheba saw jaws dropping throughout the audience in the Live Music Hall at the National Music Show.”

Guitarist Magazine

“Chris is such an amazing and amusing entertainer. He’s just incredible live- I remember he played Y Viva Espana to open one concert in September after a particularly grim British summer- 2008 to be precise. Not a song I would care for, normally, but done by Chris- something completely different. He’s outrageous but in all the right ways.”

YouTube user NickRatnieks

“The standard of playing was first rate… We were given an incredible medley of Mozart’s greatest hits played at an incredible pace – on guitars”

Arran Folk Festival
